After years of development, Springfield is proud to introduce the Hellcat™, the highest capacity micro compact 9mm in the world and the next generation of defensive pistol from Springfield Armory.
The 3″ barreled micro compact pistol features a class leading capacity of 11+1 with its patented magazine — 13+1 with the included extended mag — and is the result of years of painstaking development and engineering in addition to intensive collaboration with top engineers, shooters and self defense experts.
Along with its small size and advanced features the Hellcat delivers rugged durability. The +P rated pistol features a hammer forged steel barrel and billet machined slide, both featuring Melonite™ coating. The lightweight and strong frame features Adaptive Grip Texture™, a seamless, pressure activated texture featuring a pattern of staggered pyramid shapes. The taller pyramids have a flattened top to ensure comfort in the waistband, while the shorter pyramids come to a point and are engaged when the pistol is firmly gripped. A high-hand beavertail and undercut trigger guard situate the pistol low in the hand for maximum control. A reversible mag release and standard accessory rail for lights and lasers ensure maximum adaptability.
Rear serrations run over the top of the slide for quick and easy manipulation and are designed for positive engagement. The Hellcat’s flat trigger body and nickel boron-coated trigger group provide a consistent trigger pull. A full length guide rod and dual active recoil spring ensure reliable operation and a smooth recoil impulse. The Hellcat also features a textured stand-off device at the muzzle that ensures the pistol will fire when pressed against a target.
Hellcats ship with one 11-round magazine with finger extension and optional flush fitting floorplate as well as one 13-round extended magazine. This provides you with maximum flexibility for both firepower and concealability to fit your specific needs.
Believe the hype. I just took this thing for its first trip to the range and put 500 rounds through it without a single misfeed. That was straight out of the box. I didn’t give it a dot of lube before, I didn’t do any kind of cleaning during. 200 each of 115 and 124 gr Fiocchi FMJ, 75 rounds of regular 147 gr Fiocchi JHP, and 25 rounds of Fiocchi 147 gr Hornady FTX JHP, which will be my carry ammo.
Being a small gun the 115s were a little snappy, but those fat little 147s all hit a pie plate as fast as I could pull the trigger at 10 yards. Shoots like a big gun, conceals like a little gun. I have very big hands and the 11 round clip gave enough for a good 2 finger grip, and the 13 round gives it enough to catch the pinky. Trigger is crisp and combat perfect. Just can’t say enough about it. Buy it, and don’t look back.
Now that I have been to the range, I am impressed with the Hellcat. It fired everything I loaded. Winchester 115gr white box, Remington 115gr FMJ, Winchester 124gr NATO, Hornady 115gr Critical Defense, 147gr Freedom Munitions FMJ and my favorite carry ammo 124gr Federal HST. 250+rds, ZERO issues and very accurate!
Really like this pistol. I also have the Glock 43 and the Sig 365, compares well in size to both. The performance and reliability is right there with the G43 but in my opinion it out performs the P365.
The Hellcat performed reliably out of the box by chewing up nearly 500 rounds of assorted weight ammo without a issue. My G43 did the same but my P365 had feed issues and has been back to Sig several times, so my confidence is not there any longer.
I now take the Hellcat and the G43 as my carry pistols. The trigger on the Hellcat is smooth and the grip is really nice especially with the extended mag. I looked carefully at the spent rounds for striker drag but there was zero noted with the Hellcat. I still have striker drag on the Sig.
Logged on to my favorite online store SOSS and they had the Hellcat in stock! Pulled the trigger and picked it up at my local FFL soon after. Initial thoughts are positive as I love the trigger, magazines, ergos, build, etc..
I have a G43 and 365 and the HC compares very well. Looks to be built very well with attention to detail like I haven't seen on many micros. Barrel ramp and hood are ultra polished, everything is smooth and refined. Can't wait to shoot it. Thanks for another great experience SOSS.
