Springfield Armory has announced a Valentine’s Day fundraiser benefiting the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF). Partnering with the gunsmithing and finishing experts at XDMAN, the company will auction two custom-finish “his and hers” Saint AR-15 rifles on GunBroker.com and donate all proceeds to the Foundation.

The auction, which officially launched at 12 a.m. EST on Feb. 14, 2017, will run through 12 a.m. EST on Feb. 28. The Springfield Armory Saint AR-15 rifles feature distinctive tactical KG Gunkote finishes, painstakingly designed and applied by noted gunsmith James Nicholas. The rifles also contain consecutive serial numbers. The first Saint rifle boasts a KG Gunkote Red and Black Splatter Coat finish. The two-color ghosting effect, one of XDMAN’s most popular designs, has a tactical appearance with a modern-day camouflage pattern. The second Saint rifle also utilizes the Splatter Coat technique with a custom mix of colors and splatter to make a unique finish. The base coat uses both Silver and Pink coatings to create a Lilac background, while the splatter effect uses both Titanium and Purple. The resulting pattern has a beautiful metallic sheen when exposed to light.

At the completion of the auction, all proceeds will be donated to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. Taya Kyle currently leads as CKFF Executive Director and continues the legacy of the Foundation’s namesake.

“We’re thrilled that Springfield Armory is continuing their support of the Foundation,” says Taya Kyle. “This fundraiser represents their esteem of our law enforcement, EMS, and military communities and desire for these families and marriages to thrive. It’s great to have this kind of support.”
