Rifle Review: Springfield Armory's Saint Victor - Duty Grade & Excellent Price
For the past decade Springfield Armory has released hit after hit, ensuring high quality at a moderate price, from their famed Hellcat to their new Saint Victor lineup. Lightweight and sleek, the Saint Victor has come to dominate the market with impressively accurate shooting, phenomenal handling and an excellent trigger!
The Saint Victor lineup epitomizes the Springfield's passion for ensuring quality and affordable pricing for the everyman along with exceptionally well built components and excellent ergonomics.
Built with both versatility and durability in mind, the Saint Victor comes in weighing at ~6.9 lbs. and features receivers forged from 7075-T6 aluminum paired with Springfield's proprietary Accu-Tite system. Building on that you have a 16" Melonite-treated barrel and bolt-carrier group paired with a low-profile, mid-length gas system. It doesn't stop there, that same Melonite-treated barrel is topped off with a ported and baffled muzzle brake making for a complete package.
More on versatility, the Saint Victor sports a 15” handguard, ending with a short section of Picatinny rail on the top. It freely floats the gun’s barrel and contains M-LOK slots for accessories. Topping it all of you have spring-loaded flip-up sights that come standard.
Now for one of the flagship features of the Saint Victor, it's nickel-born-coated single-stage trigger group. For such a low overall cost, it's a real surprise to see such a tremendous trigger, which breaks like glass at 4.5 lbs., on the Saint Victor. It is important to note it is a flat trigger with virtually no take up making those 4.5 lbs. feel like 2.5 lbs.
In essence, the Springfield Saint Victor is a duty-ready personal defense rifle with everything you need and nothing you don't.
