Is This The Ultimate Concealed Carry Firearm? Springfield Armory Announces The Hellcat

Published

It’s been a few weeks and we’ve been on edge to see what Springfield Armory has been working on for the past few years. The news finally dropped this morning, and what we’re seeing is all things great.

This morning, they announced their newest handgun; Hellcat.

In a few short hours, whenever UPS arrives at our gun shop, we’ll have our hands on a Hellcat to show you. As Springfield kept a very tight lid on this release, we had absolutely no idea what it was until this morning. Hats off to them for doing such a good job on a release without any leaks. That’s rare these days!

With an optics-ready version (above) and the standard version (below), this compact handgun has an 11 round capacity, and goes to 13 rounds with the extended magazine.

Holsters for Hellcat are available already, so be sure to check them out if you’re going to be adding this firearm to your collection.
