Springfield has brought several compact self-defense-purposed weapons to SHOT 2020. Among them, the SAINT Edge PDW is maybe the most balanced personal defense weapon (PDW) in terms of size, firepower and deployment speed. This 5.5″ barreled, 5.56 NATO-chambered AR-style pistol is a sweet little package.
We were able to talk one-on-one with Springfield Armory Media Manager Mike Humphries at SHOT about this new product, so check out the video below:
We were really impressed by the compactness of the Edge PDW after handling it in person. It would slide under nearly any vehicle’s front seat, inside a nightstand, or even in a bathroom drawer. And all you have to do in order to start dispensing freedom is rip open the brace, flick the safety off and start squeezing the trigger.
