From grips to sights and everything in between, manufacturers are turning to some incredible advancements to create the best firearms imaginable.
We spent some time going back and forth, but these five were our favorite new guns released in 2016. Scroll through the gallery above and see what we decided on.
Springfield Armory Saint
The Springfield Armory Saint made its debut in 2016. The rifle comes complete with flip-up rear aperture sight, 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium barrel, and micro-polished Nickel Boron treated components. An excellent choice when searching for a new personal defense rifle, the Saint features a fixed A2-style front and an exclusive Bravo Company KeyMod handguard along with several other easy to maneuver features.
