Springfield’s New M-LOK Saint Rifles

Springfield Armory is pleased to announce new M-LOK compatible SAINT rifles chambered in 5.56mm NATO. These SAINT rifles now feature slim M-LOK compatible handguards from Bravo Company, with an internal aluminum heat shield.

The SAINT rifles now come in two configurations – one model features a pinned, picatinny railed gas block and includes an SA low-profile flip-up front sight, and the other has an A2-style front sight and pinned gas block. Each M-LOK compatible SAINT model includes a low-profile, dual aperture flip-up rear sight with ½ minute of angle windage adjustments.

At the heart of these SAINT rifles is an M16 bolt carrier group, with a Carpenter 158 steel bolt that has been shot-peened and magnetic particle tested to meet the most demanding durability requirements. The 16-inch barrel is made of Chrome Moly Vanadium and Melonite coated inside and out for longevity and corrosion resistance. A 1:8-inch twist rate barrel is capable of stabilizing a broad range of ammunition types and projectile lengths. The rifles are a lightweight 6.11 ounces, capable of quick and easy handling under strenuous conditions.

Unlike many AR-15s on the market, the SAINT family of rifles feature an upgraded trigger right out of the box. The nickel boron-coated GI single-stage trigger operates smoothly and provides a clean, grit-free pull. These M-LOK compatible SAINTs also use a mid-length gas system with an “H” heavy tungsten buffer, designed to mitigate snappy recoil and ensure a smooth, accurate, and comfortable shooting experience. The Accu-Tite™ tension system provides a tight, wobble-free fit between the upper and lower receivers, which are constructed from Type III hard anodized aircraft-grade 7075 T6 aluminum.

Bravo Company outfits the M-LOK compatible SAINT rifles with quality furniture, including the upgraded BCM Gunfighter stock, the Mod 3 pistol grip, and the BCM trigger guard. One 30-round Magpul PMAG is included.

These new M-LOK compatible SAINT rifles are also available in a California legal configuration with a Strike industries featureless grip, Magpul MOE fixed carbine stock and SA muzzle brake. These models ship with one 10-round Magpul PMAG.

Taurus Offers Sizzling Summer Rebate Program

Up to $50 Back by Mail on New TX22 and Select Revolvers

Taurus has announced a promotional discount for one of the company’s newest and most innovative polymer-frame pistols. The Sizzling Summer Rebate program will offer consumers a $50 rebate when they purchase the groundbreaking TaurusTX 22 semi-auto .22LR handgun between July 1 and September 30, 2019

The new TaurusTX 22 is engineered to be an out-of-the-box competition-ready polymer-frame pistol. Chambered for .22LR, the TX22 was designed to serve as a high-volume, full-frame handgun for competition or for training.

Built around a striker-fire system, the TX22 features a crisp 5-lb. trigger pull weight and positive reset. This refined trigger works with an easy-to-actuate recoil spring and aggressive slide serrations to make operation easy for beginners or advanced shooters. Other features include an ambidextrous manual safety, adjustable rear sights, and a reversible mag release.

To take advantage of the rebate offver, visit TaurusUSA.com/TX22Rebate.

The Sizzling Summer Rebate also offers up to $30 back on the purchase of select Model 856 revolvers.

The 6-shot 856 line usurped the 5-shot Model 85 line in recent years, featuring a rugged compact frame, smooth cylinder operation, and ergonomic, soft-rubber grip that assists in quick target reacquisition for follow-up shots. The aluminum-frame 856 Ultra-Lite model is an especially easy all-day carry. Chambered for .38 Special, the 856 series revolvers are offered with conventional hammer or spurless hammer designs in DA/SA or DAO, respectively.

The limited-time rebate program provides qualifying purchasers of all matte black model 856 and 856 Ultra-Lite revolvers with a $25 rebate offer while purchasers of all matte stainless models can receive a $30 rebate. Like the TX22 offer, the 856 rebate is valid from July 1 through September 30, 2019.
