The Saint is one of the most user-friendly versions of this user friendly platform. We’d prefer a free-float sling attachment, but the Saint is handsome and well made at a good price.

The most comfortable buttstock in our test was the BCM Gunfighter buttstock from Bravo Company Manufacturing, available in multiple colors and patterns from $55 to $70 from Moving the stock on the buffer tube required squeezing the stock bottom to top against a stout spring. But lockdown was secure and rattle-free, as well as sleek and simple with a QD sling point.
The Saint’s hammer and trigger components were nickel-boron coated for reduced wear, increased lubricity, and easy cleaning. We saw these selling on for around $765, another bargain.
An Allen screw with nylon tip was seated directly below the lug on the upper. Referred to as the Accu-Tite Tension system, the screw could be adjusted to apply pressure to the lug to reduce play between the upper and lower ends of the rifle. Adjustment required removing the grip.
