Springfield Armory adds to The Saint lineup with the powerful Saint pistol chambered in .308. The Saint chambered in .308 will feature the same length 10.3” barrel as the 5.56 version of The Saint pistol. That is a lot of hate and discontent within a 10.3” barrel. According to Springfield Armory, “SAINT Victor Pistol in .308 delivers more than twice the energy on target than a 5.56 in a comparable barrel length.”
The new Saint .308 pistol will offer a CMV barrel with a 1:10 twist rate and Melonite finish. The barrel is fitted with a 2-Piece Blast Diverter from SA to direct the muzzle blast away from the shooter. The .308 version will be running a direct impingement system (DI) with a pinned low pro gas block.
The upper and lower of the Saint .308 are made from 7075-T6 aluminum with a Type 3 hard cost fibdhbThe Saint .308 also features: M-Lok Handguards with patented SA locking tabs for mounting accessories, BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 Pistol Grip, QD endplate, single side safety selector, SA Carbine buffet tube with an H3 Buffer, SBA 3 pistol brace, and a flat face nickel boron trigger.
