Springfield Armory Unveils New M-Lok Saint Rifles

posted on July 12, 2019
Springfield Armory has announced new 5.56x45 mm NATO-chambered SAINT rifles, featuring slim M-Lok-compatible handguards from Bravo Company, with internal aluminum heat shields. Two configurations are available—one features a pinned, picatinny-railed gas block and includes an SA low-profile flip-up front sight; the other has an A2-style front sight and a pinned gas block. Each M-Lok-compatible SAINT includes a low-profile, dual-aperture flip-up rear sight with ½ minute of angle (MOA) windage adjustments. 

Beyond the M-Lok which differentiates this new pair, SAINT rifles feature M16 bolt-carrier groups with Carpenter 158 steel bolts. Their 16" barrels are Chrome Moly Vanadium and Melonite-coated inside and out for longevity and corrosion resistance, with a 1:8" twist. M-Lok SAINT rifles weigh in at only 6.11 ozs, boast an upgraded single-stage trigger and use a mid-length gas system with an “H” heavy tungsten buffer.

Bravo Company outfits the M-Lok-compatible SAINT rifles with furniture, including the upgraded BCM Gunfighter stock, the Mod 3 pistol grip, and the BCM trigger guard. One 30-round Magpul PMAG is included.

M-Lok compatible SAINT rifles are also available in a California-legal configuration with a Strike industries featureless grip, Magpul MOE fixed carbine stock and an SA muzzle brake. These models ship with one 10-round Magpul PMAG.

For more information on these rifles, which range in price from $942 to $972, please visit springfield-armory.com.
