Bottom line is this: You get near-carbine performance in a much smaller package. It's not likely to replace your XD-S® or EMP® as your EDC (every day carry) but the SAINT™ Pistol is definitely more compact and maneuverable than your standard carbine, allowing it to be nearer to you and ready to go when a bigger rifle wouldn't. And this is the whole appeal of the AR Pistol genre. This new little brother in the SAINT™ line packs a big punch chambering the .223 / 5.56 round. As for controllability and "pointability", The SAINT™ Pistol allows the user to spread the handhold contact points over the longer length of the firearm. Furthermore, the shooter can enhance the speed and accuracy potential by facilitating a cheek contact point using the forearm brace. So in the unfortunate event where you may need to fight your way to a rifle, you might instead "fight your way..." to the new SAINT™ AR-15 Pistol.
