GENESEO, ILL. (11/15/18) – Springfield Armory’s brand new SAINT Edge Pistol combines the most popular features of the most premium SAINT in the lineup with the compact shootability of a pistol platform.
With the same features that make the SAINT Edge a premium rifle, the SAINT Edge Pistol in 5.56 allows for maximum portability and ease of use in close quarters. The lightweight billet-machined lower receiver compliments the patent-pending full-length free float handguard, and the 10.3” lightweight 1:8 twist CMV barrel creates a comfortable, quick-handling and versatile platform. The rugged Maxim Defense CQB adjustable pistol brace reduces size, stabilizes recoil, and enhances accuracy in one or two-handed operation.
The lower receiver is machined, rather than forged, from aircraft grade 7075 T6 billet aluminum, and features Springfield Armory’s proprietary adjustable Accu-Tite™ tension system, designed to eliminate movement between the upper and lower receivers. A crisp SA match short reset trigger system provides the feel of a competition trigger in a tactical platform. The flat-top upper receiver is Type lll hard-coat anodized 7075 T6 aluminum, with a forward assist and M4 feed ramps for reliable cycling. The enhanced M16 bolt carrier group is finished with super-hard Melonite® and carries a premium 9310 HPT/MPI steel bolt, superior to Mil-Spec. The charging handle is Springfield Armory’s exclusive mid-size design for enhanced operation.
The patent-pending slim free-float aluminum handguard is M-Lok compatible to give you an almost unlimited choice of accessories, with multiple mounting points for slings, lights and other equipment. An aluminum forward hand stop is included to keep your support hand clear of the muzzle. Under the handguard, a carbine-length, multi/mode adjustable gas block allows for tuning to specific ammo or suppressor use, and is pinned to the barrel for reliable operation, eliminating the concern of the block coming out of alignment. Unlike other “optics ready” pistols that are unusable out of the box, the Edge Pistol comes complete with front and rear spring loaded flip-up sights, allowing you to take this SAINT immediately to the range. The ½ MOA windage adjustable dual aperture rear sight, and ½ MOA elevation-adjustable front sight can be folded down or used to co-witness with optics.
The compact SAINT Edge Pistol is the perfect companion for personal defense. At just 24.6” with the brace collapsed, and weighing only 5 lbs, 11.5 ounces, the newest SAINT pistol from Springfield Armory delivers a lot of power in a small package.
