GENESEO, ILL. (10/26/23) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of the SAINT® Victor 9mm Carbine California-compliant model, the newest pistol caliber carbine (PCC) addition to the Victor line of AR-pattern rifles.

The SAINT® Victor 9mm Carbine California-compliant model packs industry-leading features into a modern carbine available for sale in America’s more restrictive locales. This is accomplished through the use of a Magpul® fixed stock and a Strike Industries California-compliant pistol grip, combined with a Colt®-pattern, 10-round magazine.

Featuring forged 7075-T6 aluminum dedicated 9mm upper and lower receivers, the carbine employs a rugged direct blowback system of operation to ensure rock-solid reliability. The carbine’s Melonite®-coated 16” barrel employs a SA Muzzle Drum, recessed under the carbine’s free-floated, full-length handguard. The handguard itself features ample M-Lok® slots for accessories. Rounding out the package are spring-loaded flip-up sights.

“This new SAINT Victor 9mm Carbine adds another option to the SAINT Victor line for residents of the state of California,” said Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Featuring the rugged performance of a direct blowback system, the SAINT Victor in 9mm makes for a great addition to any California firearms enthusiast’s collection.”

Priced at an MSRP of $1,299, the new California-Compliant SAINT Victor 9mm Carbine brings PCC performance to the proven Victor line of AR-pattern firearms for a whole new segment of shooters.
