Springfield Armory fans will have the opportunity to bid on custom “His & Her” Saint rifles benefiting the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.

The 14-day Gunbroker auction for the red and black spattered and lilac-inspired Saints by XDMAN began at midnight on Feb. 14 and runs through Feb. 28.

The red and black rifle features a KG Gunkote with two-color ghosting effect. It offers a tactical appearance with modern-day red and black camouflage pattern. The second Saint blends a base coat of silver and pink coatings to create a lilac background, while the splatter effect uses titanium and purple for a metallic sheen when exposed to light.

Both rifles come with matching Hexmag Series 2 magazines as well as the original, unaltered Magpul 30-round mags. Should the winning bidder come from a restrictive state, an alternate compliant magazine will be provided.

The design and customization was the brainchild of gunsmith James Nicholas. Nicholas said he wanted to capitalize on the Valentine’s Day theme by offering matching rifles.

“I was intrigued by the idea of customizing his and hers rifles with consecutive serial numbers,” Nicholas said in a statement. “The splatter coat technique has been our most popular finish, and I wanted to highlight the Valentine’s Day timing of this fundraiser with carefully chosen colors. I think the result is something really special.”

The proceeds from the auction will go to further CKFF’s mission of providing military and first responder marriages and families with unique experiences to reconnect while offering the support of clinical coaching.

“We’re thrilled that Springfield Armory is continuing their support of the foundation,” CKFF Executive Director Taya Kyle said in a statement. “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.”

Dennis Reese, Springfield Armory CEO, said the company is honored to continue helping preserve Kyle’s memory through the foundation.

“We’re honored to continue our support of this foundation honoring a great American hero,” said Dennis Reese, Springfield Armory CEO. “Last year, we had the honor of producing a special version of the 1911 TRP pistol that American Sniper Chris Kyle carried in combat to benefit the foundation. This year, we wanted to continue that tradition and find a new way to support the great work being done by Taya Kyle and the foundation team.”

Current bid is listed at $2,825.
