The Springfield Armory Saint AR-15 semi-automatic is chambered for 5.56 x 45 mm NATO rounds. This gun has modern high-tech styling thanks to a palette of gray and black and features such as its M-LOK port internal heat-shielded handguard made by Bravo Company.
The Saint includes Springfield Armory’s own parts such as upper and lower receivers plus components sourced from various providers, meaning mainly the aforementioned Bravo Company. The result is an impressive package that’s butt-stock adjustable to 32.25” to 35.50” lengths and weighs only 6.69 pounds.
Atop the direct impingement gas block is a mid-length Picatinny accessory rail. Also on top are two folding sights. The dual aperture rear sight is adjustable for windage. The forged upper and lower receivers are made of aviation-grade 7075 T6 aluminum alloy and Type III hard coat anodized. These two crucial components are beautifully tied together via Springfield’s Accu-Tite tensioning screw that’s Allen-wrench adjustable.
Mostly hidden inside the texturized polymer handguard is a 16” long barrel. It’s made of chrome moly vanadium steel, has a 1 to 8 twist ratio, and is thermo-chemically finished both inside and outside in Melonite, which offers greater resistance against wear and corrosion. Fronting the barrel is a birdcage-type flash suppressor.
Many components are Bravo Company’s professional BCMGUNFIGHTER types. These include the handguard, trigger guard, grip, and butt-stock. The BCMGUNFIGHTER grip is texturized with serrations on the front of the grip while the BCMGUNFIGHTER buttstock has up to 3.25” of adjustable length.
The single-pull GI-style trigger is something Springfield Armory paid special attention to in order to get the precise feel owners would love. It has been nickel boron coated for wear protection.
The second version of this gun differs by having a fixed A2-style front sight in place of the folding one and a pinned gas block in place of the direct impingement gas block.
The Springfield Armory Saint is Made in the USA at Springfield’s Geneseo, Illinois headquarters.

Springfield Armory Saint Ar15 Rifle & Gear Up Pkg
This variant is decent and reliable. It is also notably affordable when compared to other AR-15s.
The AR-15 has long been the dominant semi-automatic rifle platform in the U.S., prized for its unparalleled mobility and component diversity. The AR-15 platform’s immense popularity has spawned a fiercely competitive consumer market, with firearms manufacturers constantly searching for ways to innovate a better price-to-performance ratio.
This competition has been especially good for a growing segment of first-time shoppers seeking a well-rounded, out-of-the-box AR-15 experience in the coveted sub-$1000 bracket. That is precisely the audience that Springfield, a relative newcomer to the AR-15 industry, is targeting with its recent SAINT series of AR-15’s.
Unveiled in late 2016 on the heels of Springfield’s prolonged “Defend Your Legacy” ad campaign, the SAINT is designed around a common premise for AR-15’s in this price range: reliable all-around performance at a reasonable cost. Sporting the no-frills,
but prolific “black gun” aesthetic commonly associated with the AR-15 platform, the most significant aspect of the SAINT’s outward design is that it manages to clock in at a competitive 6.11 lbs. However, the SAINT achieves this impressive weight through the use of a polymer
Bravo Company PKMT handguard that may incur flexing issues; meanwhile, the comparable SigM400 Tread weighs a virtually identical 7 pounds while sporting a factory-installed aluminum handguard. Those looking to take the SAINT to prolonged, high-intensity shooting sessions should also consider that the A2-style birdcage flash hider may get hot enough to melt the front of the handguard.
But neither of the issues are anywhere close to a deal-breaker for the SAINT’s intended audience, especially when considering the many positive aspects of its design. The star of the show is Springfield’s proprietary Accu-Tite tension system, an adjustable tensioning screw that is designed to eliminate wobble or looseness between the lower and upper receivers.
The preinstalled Bravo Company stock also contributes to a sturdy feel, while a full-auto bolt carrier increases long-term component durability and keeps malfunction rates low. The chrome-moly barrel with Melonite finish is a welcome divergence from Mil-Spec standards, offering further durability benefits as well as improved shot stabilization under certain circumstances.
Springfield has also taken steps to address an all-too-common pitfall of budget AR-15’s: spongy triggers with long take-up. The SAINT greatly meliorates the former problems with nickel-boron coating and eliminates the latter issue entirely with a single-stage trigger that breaks as soon as sufficient pressure is applied. The SAINT’s 6.25 trigger pull weight, while relatively heavy in ideal terms, is consistent with Mil-Spec standards and quite competitive in the sub-$1000 AR-15 bracket.
As with any AR-15 style rifle, the furniture is fully replaceable. Springfield has also released eight SAINT variants over the preceding years; almost all of these, fortunately, feature a free-floating aluminum handguard instead of the stock polymer design. There is now a short-barreled (SBR) variant, as well as several pistol versions. The Victor and Edge variants are made from more premium com
contents, but are also markedly more expensive than the original SAINT.
With the SAINT, Springfield plunged headfirst into a particularly crowded segment of the AR-15 market. Though priced at the higher end of a “starter” AR-15 at an MSRP of $899, SAINT’s host of intelligent design choices and integration of key premium components make it a compelling option for any newcomer looking for a gentle introduction to the AR-15 platform.
