On Wednesday, Illinois-based Springfield Armory announced their new Hellcat optics-ready 9mm micro-compact semi-auto pistol to the concealed carry market.

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.

Other features include rear, front and top slide serrations, an accessory rail, a flat nickel boron coated trigger, loaded chamber indicator and reversible mag release for the benefit of southpaws.

The Hellcat ships with 2 magazines, an 11-round mag with pinky extension and a 13-round extended mag. A flush plate is also included. MSRP is set at $599.
