The 5.56 NATO SAINT Victor line of AR-style rifles from Springfield Armory are built to deliver on-demand performance with intelligently thought-out upgrades and enhancements. Now Springfield takes this one step further with the newest addition to the SAINT family, the SAINT Victor with Law Tactical Folder.

The Law Tactical folder is a premier folding stock adapter system designed for the AR family of firearms and allows for the compact transportation and storage of your AR. The rugged and durable Law Tactical folder mechanism on the 16-inch-barreled 5.56mm SAINT Victor 5.56 NATO allows the buttstock assembly to fold alongside the left side of the rifle’s Type III hardcoat-anodized 7075-T6 forged aluminum receivers. The result is a 5.56mm carbine that is easy to store and easy to transport.

“The SAINT Victor has proven itself again and again to be a purpose-built, duty-ready AR carbine,” said Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “This new variant featuring the respected Law Tactical folding stock system offers even greater adaptability as well as portability.”

As with all of the rifles in the Victor line, this model features a free-float M-Lok handguard and performance upgrades for professional grade reliability, such as a premium nickel-boron trigger, Melonite-coated barrel, enhanced Melonite-coated carrier group and a pinned low-profile gas block. In addition to this, a B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip pistol grip provides control and performance.

The bolt carrier group has a heavy-duty M16-pattern bolt carrier along with a 9310 steel bolt, featuring high-pressure testing/magnetic particle inspection (HPT/MPI). In addition, the SAINT Victor Rifle comes outfitted with proprietary spring-loaded, flip-up iron sights that are adjustable for windage and elevation. Topping off the 1:8-inch twist, 16-inch-long CMV steel barrel is the SA Muzzle Brake, designed to simultaneously reduce muzzle rise and soften perceived recoil.

The SAINT Victor with Law Tactical Folder comes with a 30-round Magpul PMAG Gen M3 magazine, and has an MSRP of $1,363. For more information on this rifle or other products from Springfield Armory, please visit
