Last year, Springfield Armory launched the Hellcat pistol to tremendous success. Delivering 13+1 9mm firepower in the smallest of platforms, the Hellcat became an instant choice for concealed carry. Now Springfield follows up on that success with an update to the line, the Hellcat in FDE.
Springfield Hellcat FDE Details
The new Flat Dark Earth variant comes in both the standard and OSP Hellcat. The OSP version gives the option of carrying with an optic, even on such a compact platform.
“Every detail of the Hellcat has been shaped by a singular mission — to deliver the definitive concealed carry handgun,” said Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese.
In the following year, the Hellcat earned high praise and awards throughout the industry. The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) even gave it a “gold” ranking, its highest honor.
Now consumers have an FDE finish to choose from. It comes as a rugged Cerakote coating, providing corrosion resistance. The FDE contrasts with the black Melonite finish on the hammer-forged barrel. Additionally, the trigger, magazine release, cover plate on the OSP, and sights contrast with black as well.
The +P rated pistol features a 3-inch barrel. The micro compact pistols delivers 11+1 capacity with a flush fit magazine. Meanwhile, the extended magazine pushes overall capacity to 13+1.
The Hellcat OSP utilizes a seamless cover plate that removes to allow direct mounting of a micro red dot to the slide. Meanwhile, the U-Dot sight system co-witnesses with an optic. It features a high visibility tritium and luminescent front sight paired with a tactical rack U-notch rear.
MSRP on the standard model comes in at $610, while the OSP model retails for $643. For more information, please visit springfield-armory.com.
