The Saint!
The new Springfield Saint seems to be quite the AR-15! Now just have to actually see one and price one. A top quality AR, but I have no idea what they will sell for.

I don't know. The Saint just seems like a new entry into an already crowded field. I think it would have been more interesting if they'd have entered into the smaller, as far as manufacturers are concerned, AK or AK/AR hybrid market. $900 for what amounts to a higher end of the entry level market also seems a little high. $750-$800 might be a better starting point.

Right now, 90% of our sales are on ARs below a G note. That is where the market seems to be.

RE: The Saint!
I haven't had the chance to see one yet. None of our distributors have one. I do have one comming in as an FFL transfer any day now. I'll make a point of fondling it a bit.

Personally, I've been eyeing this one. My son laughed when i told him, "Why buy that, you don't shoot the ones you have now". Kinda rained on my parade a bit. Some day....

Mike you need to get out to the range! Plan a range day at least once every other month. I always take 3 toys to the range. I shoot them, I clean them, and remember why I selected them. You need to do the same!

Yeah, but my plan is to be at a range EVERYDAY some day.

I don't know many people that are able to have a bullet trap 10 feet from their office desk. Smile

Can I say Envy... I guess now that I have taken the SRO class, maybe I need to find a part time job at a range...

I agree that the price may be a little high. Out here AR's are on the store shelves and sitting for those sale prices. I have one shop here locally that was selling black Friday specials for under 550. Mike, to echo your sons remarks, I told my wife I was buying a HK SP9K and she asked me the same question. But I want something different than my the 7 (still two left to build) AR's. My brother said he will build me another AK and then I added the two Glocks I just bought, coupled with the coming addition of the HK...will I get time to shoot...HOPE SO!
