Hellcat, not just a tank destroyer or Grumman carrier-based fighter anymore
For those who like the concept of the Glock 26, but lighter, or the Sig P365, but with one extra round, Springfield Armory last week introduced a new entry to the class of “micro-compact” 9mm pistol, the Hellcat.
As a rundown: Using a 3-inch hammer-forged barrel which translates to a 6-inch overall length while standing just 4-inches high, the 18.3-ounce Hellcat offers an 11+1 capacity in a flush-fit magazine. This can be stretched to 13+1 with an extended mag that bumps height to 4.5-inches. Offered in both a standard and OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) configuration, the latter uses a milled slide intended for micro red dots such as the JP Enterprises JPoint and Shield RMSc.
