New for 2023: Springfield's Saint Victor Carbine in 9 mm

This pistol-caliber carbine rifle uses the same ammo as your favorite handgun, and it's a dream to shoot to boot.

posted on January 18, 2023

Pistol-caliber carbine (PCC) rifles have many advantages for NRA Women interested in shooting and self-defense. There's the scaled-down size of the carbine, of course, which is a boon for those of us with smaller frames. Then there's the fact that the weight of a rifle devours the felt recoil from a pistol caliber round, making the PCC ideal for recoil-sensitive shooters. Finally, there's the fact that you can stock the same ammunition for your handgun and your rifle, which makes literally everything simpler. That's why you'll want to take a look at Springfield Armory's new Saint Victor Carbine, an AR-style rifle chambered in 9 mm.

This new-for-2023 shooter features a shortened receiver set with caliber-specific features, like a relocated brass deflector and shortened ejection port. This carbine is designed to use 32-round Colt-pattern magazines. Other features include a Springfield-designed blast diverter at the muzzle, as well as Bravo Systems furniture and an M-Lok handguard. MSRP $1,299;
