You are correct, I just looked at it briefly and thought Stainless, but then went to the website and they say nickel boron coated....

I still like it.

Well, I'm guessing they are going to be a lot more popular in California or states like California. Assuming other states get this stupid. And if they get even more stupid, the various M1ish sorts of rifle are much more easily made (or converted) to straight pulls.

LWRC has been doing the nickel born coating on internal parts since at least 2007.

Well, hell... if I was going to get an AR, I think I'd go Springfield.

I'm not, though.

We haven't had anyone ask if we had the Saint in yet, while the ATI and M&P are selling out. Stripped lower receivers are selling at a very fast past and we're sold out on several mfgrs. With a retail price of $899 which is $50 above cost I think many will shy away when they see the price tag.

I doubt SAI is going to quite making the M1A, their the major player in that field and seem to have no trouble selling them. This is just a way for them to pay someone else to stamp their name on something and up the price. I'd buy one from other companies before SAI.

I wonder why the lower receiver is marked "multi"? I hate when manufacturers do that. Maybe SAI will be selling stripped lowers soon and don't want to mark them with specific calibers for those wanting to put together a 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, etc.

SAI is located in Geneseo, IL. That's about 20 miles due East on I-80 of the center of the "Quad Cities" meaining Davenport IA, Bettendorf IA, Rock Island IL and Moline IL (plus a bunch of smaller towns).

A lot of well built AR platforms come out of the Quad Cities, certainly Rock River Arms out of Colona IL (edge of Quad Cities area).

Then there is Les Baer out of LeClaire IA, at the top of the I-80 hill crossing the Mississippi River. Les Baer builds a whole family of ARs.

SAI is just late to the local table and therefore late to the national market, too.

Yawn, no matter how they try to jazz it up its still just another AR. I'm becoming weary of getting the American Rifleman magazine and reading about the AR or .45 clone of the month.

SAI has gathered up some mighty attractive ad models for the SAINT campaign. Lordy!

I would have gladly given them some more of my money, but they get nothing from me for an AR.
Wow, never heard of that gun or ever seen it, but I must say, I like it. I like the VHS-D2 version. Total sci-fi space gun looking, but in a good way.
If it went bang every time the trigger was pulled, wasn't a jam-o-matic, was available in the US, and was under $2000, I would buy one tomorrow.

I too agree we don't need another AR on the market. It is flooded right now and they are getting very boring. Something cool and fresh like that would be great.
