New Springfield Armory Hellcat

Springfield Armory Hellcat HeaderToday Springfield Armory released a new pistol that they have been teasing for about a month called the Hellcat.

The Hellcat is essentially a direct competitor to Sig's P365. It is a micro-compact 9mm pistol with a flush fit 11rd magazine and extended length 13rd magazine.

There are two variations (one with and one without the optics cut).

HC9319B - Hellcat 9mm Pistol without Optics Cut

See the Hellcat HC9319B in our online store with pricing and ordering information.

The HC9319BOSP is cut for the Shield RMS-C (or Sig Romeo Zero which is less expensive). It features the same features otherwise. See the HC9319BOSP in our online store for ordering information and pricing.

Springfield Armory Hellcat vs Sig P365

Since the Springfield Armory Hellcat is a direct competitor to Sig's P365, we figured it would be helpful to compare some specifications and pricing.

One significant advantage to the P365 is the modularity that the interchangeable grips provide. You can buy a replacement grip module for the P365 for only about $25! This allows for a wide variety of customizations including stippling, Cerakoting, and changing height between the regular P365 and P365 XL.

Update 10-2-19: Springfield started shipping the Hellcat and we've received our first shipment containing a few units. We compared it to the P365 since they are the closest competitors. We shot a variety of photos to show the size differences and they are definitely close. The P365 really feels thinner in your hand even though it is very very close in width. The texture and angle of the grip probably accounts for that difference in the feel. The trigger on the Hellcat is pretty crisp with distinctive reset. The magazines definitely feel easier to load compared to P365 magazines. We were able to load 14 rounds in the 13rd magazine and even the 14th round felt easier to load than the 11th round on a 12rd P365 extended length magazine.  You can see the Hellcat magazine is .8" wide. We missed measuring the P365 magazine in our photo but we did measure it at .7975" wide.
