The Details

At its most basic — even though Springfield will cringe at this description — the SAINT Victor .308 Pistol is essentially a chopped-down AR10 rifle, albeit with a “pistol brace” in place of a shoulder stock plus lots of other quality accoutrements and improvements. The direct-impingement gun features a 10.3" CMV Melonite barrel with 1:10 twist, crowned with a proprietary two-piece blast diverter to keep the significant fire and brimstone facing forward. Both parts of the receiver are forged 7075 T6 aluminum anodized with Type III black Hardcoat and held together with Springfield’s Accu-Tite Tension system. Other enhancements include a Melonite-treated HPT/MPI BCG using a 9320 steel bolt and pinned gas block, tungsten buffer and nickel-boron flat GI trigger.

The furniture includes an M-Lok free-float aluminum handguard with Springfield-patented locking tabs: a forward handstop, an SB Tactical SBA-3 pistol brace and BCMGUNFIGHTER Mod 3 pistol grip. There is also a QD receiver end plate and the gun comes with one 20-round Magpul PMAG Gen M3 magazine. Length ranges from 28.24"–30.5" and it weighs just a shade over 8 lbs. “dry.” The MSRP is $1,363.
