Springfield Armory has just announced the Hellcat Pro, a new Hellcat variant that features an increased capacity and optics-ready slide.
The Springfield Hellcat has been one of the most popular concealed carry pistols on the market since its introduction, and Springfield has just announced the release of a new model in the family. The Springfield Hellcat Pro will come with an optics-ready slide, a longer barrel and an increased magazine capacity over standard Hellcat models.
Springfield is advertising that the biggest advantage of the new Hellcat Pro is its large magazine capacity despite the gun’s small size. The pistol retains the slim and concealable 1-inch width from previous Hellcat models but now has a larger grip that is more comfortable to hold and facilitates the use of new 15-round flush-fit magazines. It also features a longer barrel and proportionally longer slide, providing fired projectiles with greater velocity and the shooter with a longer sight radius. Speaking of sights, the Hellcat Pro also includes a co-witness U-Dot Tactical Rack rear sight, tritium front sight and an optics-ready slide ready to accept RMSc-pattern red dots. The accessory rail on the Hellcat Pro has been extended as well.
Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing, had this to say on the new Hellcat Pro:
The Hellcat Pro delivers full-size performance in a concealable, EDC-ready package with unmatched ergonomics…This is a pistol that shoots like a much larger handgun while still being extremely easy to conceal, offering you the best of both worlds.
Each Hellcat Pro will include two 15-round magazines and the MSRP will be $634. All other features on the Pro model are comparable to those of existing Hellcats.
