Thunder You Can Carry! NEW Springfield Armory SAINT Victor 308 Pistol

The SAINT series of AR-15/AR-10 rifles and pistols has been tremendously popular ever since their introduction a few years ago. Springfield Armory has identified a median price-point with superb quality that many shooters can get on board with. The next logical step is to bring this platform to a higher level. Springfield Armory has taken the thunderous power of the 308 Winchester cartridge and compacted it into a small AR pistol package that is now the SAINT Victor 308!

Some people need a strong yet agile firearm platform for not just hunting, but everyday life. Whether it is meant to be carried daily in the outdoors as a part of their job, they may desire legitimate force while recreating in the outdoors or simply want a primary hunting firearm that does not weigh 10 pounds. If that describes you, the Springfield Armory SAINT Victor 308 could be a good contender for your gun safe. All of the specifications can be read below as presented by Springfield Armory:
