Springfield Armory Announces the Hellcat Pro
GENESEO, ILL. – Combining the performance of a larger handgun with class-leading concealability to provide an exceptional everyday carry pistol, Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of the new Hellcat® Pro 9mm pistol.
Designed to deliver the perfect balance, the new Hellcat Pro is a compact pistol chambered in 9mm that offers 15+1 capacity in a smaller footprint than any other gun in its class. The compact 9mm packs in impressive capacity while still maintaining the ergonomic, slim profile of the original Hellcat for seamless concealability.
At just 1″ wide, the slim-line grip feels superb in the hand, increasing contact and control, while the additional mass in the slide and barrel translates into reduced muzzle flip and faster follow-up shots. The lightweight polymer frame features our 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.
Developed with the use of red dot optics in mind, the Hellcat Pro features an OSP™ (Optical Sight Pistol) configuration. The slide is milled with the Springfield Micro™ footprint, designed to direct mount the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market for the lowest mount possible. Backing up your choice of optic is an excellent set of co-witnessing U-Dot™ sights, made up of a high visibility tritium & luminescent front sight paired with a Tactical Rack rear sight.
Ensuring you can mount the light or laser of your choice on the Hellcat Pro, the pistol features a versatile Picatinny rail on the dustcover portion of the frame. This longer section of rail provides users the flexibility to deploy a wide range of accessories for varied applications and conditions.
