The only Sabre Defence available for now are 16" midlength 1/7 and all kinds of 1/9 barrels/ uppers from Talon Arms and maybe some other sellers at the Equipment Exchange section.

They are taking orders for the 16" 1/7 midlength upper halfs which is due out sometimes this month.

The full complete rifles could be ordered now from the noted dealer.

Here's a couple of threads about Sabre's midlength barrels.

Hello. I have also tried to find info about Sabre. There is not many people who have tested the guns it seems. I have shot a standard Sabre with 20" barrel, no freefloat. It had very good accuracy, and easily shot within one MOA with match ammo. I have not tried enough rounds to give you anything more specific about the accuracy.

I absolutely love my Sabre Defence mid length. Quality is on par with the ABCs. Mine is a chrome lined 1/9 barrel with A3 upper that I purchased used from the EE. Performance has been excellent. I would not hesitate to buy another Sabre.

I got a 1/7 twist mid-length barrel from Talon Arms and am very pleased with it.

When I was sighting my EOTech in at 50yds, I ran a box of 62gr Wolf through it and that resulted in my best group of the day. IIRC, center to center was about .75"for that 5-shot group. That would roughly translate to about 1.5" at 100yds.

Not bad, in my opinion. Hell, that's great with Wolf.

Unfortunately, I ran completely out of ammo after I got the EOTech zeroed and I haven't had the time or money to get any more ordered.

The major difference from the origional factory bushmaster upper I had on my rifle and the sabre barrel I ordered from Talon Arms was the smoother and cleaner looking finish on the sabre barrel. From what I can tell, top notch machining and finish, they really know their shit.

My Sabre 1/7 flat top middy upper got here today (from Talon Arms, of course), and it's freakin' awesome. I can't wait to get it together into a whole rifle and shoot it.

I bought one of the Sabre midlength barrels via Talon Arms. The barrel is great and Talon Arms provided outstanding service.

I highly recommend both.
