Nice, we need more stuff that’s named “Hellcat”, even if it makes no sense. Sounds a lot bigger than it is tho LOL

Did they really call a 1/8" extended recoil spring guide a "stand off device"?

Does it have a grip safety?   I've seen a couple pictures and couldn't tell.

I wonder if they have the optional grip with the spikes that shoot out if the wrong person grabs the gun :o
This is why I now carry an all stainless steel pistol . if I'm that close to a BG that I can poke him with something stupidly pointy. Hell...
My S&W is like a brick I'll just beat him over the head with it👍.

Ruger Bearcat, Beretta Cheetah, Cougar, Tomcat
Springfield Copycat....err... Hellcat.

Did anyone see the Kentucky Gun Co Review? Not very impressive shooting.

I got an early (April 2018) SIG P365 and after only 65 rounds, the trigger bar spring fell off. To SIG's credit though, they fixed it quickly, also replaced the striker all gratis and it's shot >3,000 flawless rounds since. Would I trust buying a SIG 365 again now...Yes.
But knowing the teething issues SIG had with the early P365's, will Springfield do any better??
If this is still in production in 3 years......

No grip safety. No grip zone.

It's a nicely sized Pistol, but I think there are better alternatives in the market.
I will say that the Springfield XD series Pistols are generally of very good quality and reasonably accurate.


When I think of Hellcat, I think of this.  Bigger caliber, but a bit more recoil.

Another CCW, but why the hell they named it like this? Does this gun deserve this name?

Here is THE HellCat !
