Springfield Armory is now chambering its SAINT Victor Pistol in .308 Winchester, to go along with their existing offerings in 5.56 NATO and 300 Blackout.
The SAINT Victor Pistol in .308 features a high-pressure-tested and magnetic-particle-inspected bolt and a 10.3-inch chrome-moly-vanadium Melonite-finished barrel with a pinned low-profile gas block. The flat trigger is a nickel-boron-coated single-stage model.
“The SAINT Victor Pistol in .308 gives shooters a premium featured AR pistol that delivers serious power in a small, lightweight and easily maneuverable platform,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s vice president of marketing. “If you want a SAINT Pistol that offers more power than 5.56, then this is the one for you.”
This .30-caliber SAINT pistol measures just over 28 inches in overall length with the SB Tactical SBA3 five-position brace collapsed. Other features include a BCMGUNFIGHTER Mod 3 pistol grip, one 20-round Magpul PMAG Gen M3 magazine, a free-float M-Lok handguard, and an SA 2-Piece Blast Diverter.
The gas system is a carbine-length direct impingement unit. The forged lower receiver features Springfield Armory’s Accu-Tite Tension System for a tight fit with the forged upper, and the Picatinny rail allows you to mount the optic of your choice. For iron-sight use, the free-float handguard has a short Picatinny rail at the muzzle to mount a front sight. Weight is listed as 8 pounds 6 ounces.
