Springfield Armory® Announces SAINT™ Pistol in .300 BLK
Heavier-hitting round in Springfield Armory’s popular AR pistol platform
GENESEO, IL, April 30, 2018 – (AR15Vault.com) – With the success of Springfield Armory’s SAINT AR-15 Pistol in 5.56, more people than ever are requesting variations to the original version. The newest iteration in .300 BLK harnesses the power of this proven round for increased capability and versatility in a combat-grade platform.
The SAINT AR-15 Pistol features a rugged SB Tactical SBX-K forearm brace to reduce size, stabilize recoil, and enhance accuracy in one or two-hand shooting. A 9-inch CMV barrel with a 1:7 twist and A2 flash hider makes the SAINT AR-15 Pistol small, fast, and ideal for CQB. The barrel is Melonite® treated inside and out to be as durable and more accurate than chrome lining.
Built with high-end features throughout, Springfield Armory’s exclusive Accu-Tite™ tension system increases the tension between the upper and the lower receivers, ensuring an ideal fit and reducing movement. The upper and lower receivers are forged Type III hard-coat anodized 7075 T6 aluminum.
The slender, M-Lok compatible handguard features Springfield Armory’s exclusive, patent-pending, rock-solid proprietary attachment system, with four attachment points anchoring it to the barrel nut. Under the handguard is Springfield’s pinned multi/mode adjustable gas block that will reliably cycle supersonic and subsonic ammo, suppressed or unsuppressed. The crisp, enhanced nickel boron coated GI single-stage trigger is paired with a Bravo Company trigger guard. The smooth-operating heavy tungsten buffer system, GI style charging handle, and Bravo Company Mod 3 pistol grip are all well-proven in previous SAINT rifle models.
To ensure durability, the M16 BCG’s bolt is precision-machined from Carpenter 158 steel, shot peened, magnetic particle inspected and finished in super-hard Melonite®. This combat-grade SAINT pistol carries a Magpul Gen M3, 30-round magazine.
The compact design is the perfect complement to the .300 BLK round making the SAINT AR-15 Pistol an ideal choice for home defense. At just 27.75 inches long, and weighing only 5.9 pounds, this new AR pistol in .300 BLK from Springfield Armory delivers a lot of power in a small, fast-handling package.
The SAINT AR-15 pistol is available in two configurations:
SAINT AR-15 Pistol – 5.56 (ST975556B)
SAINT AR-15 Pistol – .300 BLK (ST909300B)
