As part of Springfield Armory’s Saint line of AR-based firearms, the new Saint Victor Pistol in .308 Win. offers large-frame power and is loaded with premium components. Purpose-built for home-defensive use, the Saint Victor Pistol in .308 Win. is engineered with an HPT (High Pressure Tested) and MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) bolt to maintain function under even the heaviest of round counts. From the Melonite-finished barrel to the pinned, low-profile gas block; from the crisp, clean enhanced-nickel-boron coated, single-stage flat trigger, the Saint Victor Pistol in .308 Win. adds a potent Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) to the Saint pistol family. 

This new Saint pistol harnesses .308 Win.- power into a 10.3-inch -barreled package measuring slightly more than 28 inches with the SB Tactical  SBA3, five-position brace fully collapsed. Add to that standout appointments such as a BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 pistol grip, a 20-round Magpul PMag Gen M3 magazine, a freefloat M-Lok handguard and a Springfield Armory 2-Piece Blast Diverter, and you have a PDW in .308 Win. that’s supremely powerful, yet compact. 

“The Saint Victor Pistol in .308 Win. gives shooters a premium featured AR pistol that delivers serious power in a small, lightweight and easily maneuverable platform,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “If you want a Saint pistol that offers more power than 5.56 NATO, then this is the one for you.” 

The forged lower receiver features Springfield Armory’s proprietary Accu-Tite Tension System for a precise fit with the upper receiver, which comes with a flattop to mount the optic of your choice. For those who prefer iron sights, the freefloat handguard has a short section of Picatinny rail at the muzzle for mounting a front sight. 

The result is a potent, purpose-built PDW with enough .308 Win. oomph to handle any home-defense situation you may encounter. For more information on the new Saint Victor Pistol in .308 Win., visit springfield-armory.com.

Your Go-To Move

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.

CCW in Public Restrooms: When You Gotta Go...

Sometime, somewhere, you’ll require the use of a public restroom stall. After all, like we tell small children, “Everyone has to go.” If you carry a concealed handgun, you will face the universal problem of what to do with that pistol in the stall while your britches are down.
