The SAINT Victor 9 mm pistol-caliber carbine features forged 7075 T6 aluminum dedicated 9 mm upper and lower receivers and a rugged direct blowback system of operation that ensures rock-solid reliability. The SAINT Victor 9 mm Carbine also sports a Melonite-coated 16-inch barrel with 1:10-inch twist. Attached to the muzzle is Springfield Armory’s Forward Blast Diverter, recessed under the carbine’s free-floated, full-length aluminum handguard with plenty of M-Lok slots for accessories.

The new carbine feeds from Colt-pattern, 32-round magazines that interface with the dedicated 9 mm lower. The flat trigger is nickel-boron coated. Additionally, the SAINT Victor 9 mm PCC has spring-loaded, adjustable flip-up sights that are low-profile, a six-position collapsible B5 Systems Bravo Stock with ergonomic cheekweld and no-slip cushioned buttpad, B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip, and trigger guard that is from B5 as well. Plus, there is an ambidextrous safety that will make right- and left-handers happy.

MSRP for the new Springfield Armory SAINT Victor 9 mm pistol-caliber carbine is $1,299. One 32-round magazine is included with purchase. Go to to learn more.
