Springfield Armory has been teasing us on social media for the last month that they would be releasing a NEW “class leading firearm” today, and that day has finally arrived! Their new firearm has magically stacked 11 rounds of 9mm into an ultra-slim, micro-compact frame, which many of us did not believe was possible until recently. It has surpassed that by being able to carry around 12 rounds of the industry’s favorite 9mm cartridge for defense. Springfield Armory Hellcat
The new SAH is designed to fire some of the most powerful defense loads on the market. Another standout feature is the new Adaptive Grip TextureTM, which appears to be extremely tactile regardless of whether your palms are cold and dry or hot and sweaty. Springfield’s new texturing will likely evoke old jokes about their former GripZone handling, but this Adaptive Grip TextureTM appears to be much improved and a far departure from the former.
Another trend sweeping the firearms industry is the ability to add a micro red dot to handguns, regardless of how small a carry pistol is. At the time of its release, the Springfield Armory Hellcat will be available in two configurations: standard and OSP (Optical Sight Pistol). The Hellcat OSP allows the shooter to directly mount optics to the slide for the lowest possible profile. When no optic is mounted, a seamless cover plate with top slide serrations will be included with the Hellcat OSP.
Springfield Armory has provided the following specifications for the Hellcat:
- 3” Hammer Forged Steel Barrel w/ Melonite® Finish & 1:10″ Twist Rate
- Billet Machined Slide w/ Melonite® Finish (OSP Model available HC9319BOSP)

- OSP: 17.9 Oz. w/ Flush Mag, 18.3 Oz. w/ Extended Mag
- Overall Length: 6″ | Overall Width: 1″
For easier sight picture acquisition, the Hellcat employs a U-Dot sight picture. This enables shooters of all skill levels to quickly locate the front sight and fire quick, accurate shots when needed. A high visibility tritium and luminescent front sight is combined with a Tactical Rack rear sight. It provides concealed carry users with a clear sight picture in all lighting conditions.
While the Hellcat’s new Adaptive Grip TextureTM and ability to throw a red dot are some of the most obvious and desirable features in a carry pistol, it is often the small details that distinguish one firearm from another. Springfield Armory has always paid close attention to detail and their second tier.
