Springfield Armory delivers 2 new factory SBRs to Saint rifle lineup (VIDEO)

Expanding their line of AR-series offerings, Springfield has a pair of new 11.5-inch barreled SBRs ready for stamp collectors or uniformed users.

The company debuted their Saint SBR and Saint Edge SBR officially on Friday, with the former using a forged lower receiver, and the latter a lightened billet lower. Each has a free-float M-Lok compatible handguard and 7075 T6 aluminum flat top upper with a forward assist and M4 feed ramps as well as Bravo Company Gunfighter buttstocks and pistol grips. Overall length, due to the adjustable stock, runs between 27.5 and 30.75-inches while weight goes just over 5.5-pounds.

The Saint SBR has a government profiled barrel to go along with the forged lower and uses a nickel-boron GI-style trigger while the Edge SBR has light-weight profiled barrel and uses a short-reset single-stage match trigger. Both barrels are Melonite-finished Chrome Moly Vanadium and use a 1:8 twist.

Suggested retail on the Saint SBR is $1,049 while the Edge SBR goes $1,299, NFA taxes not included. Each ship with a single Magpul Gen M3 PMAG.

The only visible difference is in the receiver, with the Saint Edge SBR, in the foreground, having obvious lightening cuts to the lower. (Photo: SA)
