Springfield Armory, one of the oldest and most trusted names in U.S. firearms, is now manufacturing their own version of one of the most ubiquitous American firearms, the AR-15-type rifle.

The Springfield Armory Saint AR-15-type rifle is designed and purpose-built as a personal defense, home defense, and patrol rifle. It’s incredibly reliable right out of the box, and it’s affordably priced. Rob Pincus shows us more about the Saint.


The Saint’s flat-top design is optics ready and includes a flip-up rear aperture sight and fixed A2-style front. The 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium barrel features a 1:8 twist rate to handle a wide range of bullet types. The operation of the M16 bolt carrier group is managed by a mid-length gas system paired with a heavy tungsten buffer, resulting in an exceptionally smooth action. A good shot starts with the trigger, so that’s why the Saint™ AR-15 features micro-polished and Nickel Boron treated components. While it offers the right pull weight for defensive use, you won’t feel it.

Unlike most defensive rifles in its price range, the Saint™ AR-15 includes top-notch furniture designed to improve both shooting experience and operator performance. An all new, exclusive Bravo Company PKMT KeyMod handguard packs heat shields and flexible attachment points into a slim and easy-to-handle form factor. The Bravo Company buttstock is rattle-free and complemented by a Bravo pistol grip designed to improve defensive performance.

Protecting What You Love

Defending your legacy is what the Springfield Armory Saint is all about, and Rob, through his work with PDN and beyond, is all about that too. What do you want to prepare to defend, what are you willing to do rifle training for and to equip yourself to defend in the future?

Like other AR-15s, the Saint will take whatever upgrades you want to put on it. If you want to change the trigger or the charging handle, no problem. For reliability in a defensive rifle right out of the box, check out the Springfield Armory Saint.

    I almost bought the Saint Edge, I really like that gun. But I think I'm going to hold out and get the Keltec RDB bullpup.
