The Hellcat is one of the newest pistols from Springfield Armory. This company has been working on this pistol for over two years, and it is certainly worth the wait.
This high capacity, compact 9mm handgun is very lightweight. This pistol is beauty; a perfect conceal carry pistol. It is not only portable, but is designed to fit comfortably in your hands. The handgun is made of solid 3-inch hammer forged steel and comes with a machined Melonite finish. The pistol grip has an Adaptive Grip Texture that allows you get a tight grip.
Springfield Hellcat is compatible with two different magazines: the flush magazine has 11+1 rounds while the extended magazine carries 13+1 rounds. This is more capacity than you’d expect from a gun of this size. The Hellcat measures 1 inch wide, 6 inches long and 4 inches tall (with the extended magazine, the height is 4.5 inches). It will fit in any holster or bag that is designed for small pistols like the SIG Sauer P365.
The top slide of the Hellcat is serrated to ensure you get a good grip. The beavertail extends a bit which gives makes it fit in the hands better and gives you more control. It also prevents the muzzle from lifting up too much during a recoil. The reset is short and smooth.
The Hellcat has a fiber optic front sight and the the rear sight has a tactical rack u-notch to aid your accuracy. Basically, you’ll see a luminescent red dot on the front sight area to help you lock in your target faster and more easily.
You can use this striker pistol at up to 50 yards or more (depending on your experience), and you should be able to hit your target without any issues. The end of the guide rod is textured so this handgun can also be used in very close quarters.
The trigger on the Springfield Armory Hellcat is flat-faced and sits at a 90-degree angle There is a undercut blade safety guard on the trigger to provide some extra security. This pistol is very easy to fire, and feels comfortable to use. Whether you have large hands or small hands, the pistol fits in a grip nicely.
When you use the extended magazine, the extended base pad actually makes the griping area larger so it is more comfortable to hold. Another cool feature of the Springfield Armory is the witness hole on top of the slide, which allows you to check if it is loaded. If there is a bullet in the chamber, you will see it through the hole. The little textured part for your thumb above the trigger guard is also a nice touch.
