Springfield Armory is marching through the MSR forest with a slew of new offerings. The original SAINT rifle has been supplemented with a short-barrel rifle (SBR) version, a free-floated barrel model, a SAINT pistol, and the newest additions, the SAINT Edge rifle, and SAINT Edge SBR. The SAINT Edge family members are the “step up” options loaded with premium features and aftermarket gear. If you want the top of the SAINT line, consider the Edge models. Now, the company has rounded out the current Edge family with a pistol variant. Let’s take an up-close and personal look.
The Short Skinny
The SAINT Edge Pistol sports an even shorter barrel than the SAINT Edge SBR with a 10.3-inch length as compared to 11.5 inches. Like the other Edge models, it’s chambered in 5.56mm NATO. Also, like the others, it’s Melonite treated with a 1:8-inch twist rate.
The receivers are machined from billet 7075 T6 Aluminum and hard-coat anodized for corrosion resistance. When you separate the receivers, you’ll notice a small green pin in the rear of the lower. That’s part of the Springfield Armory Accu-Tite Tension System. It allows you to custom fit the two halves to prevent shake and wobble between upper and lower. As parts wear over time, you can increase the tension to keep everything snug.
