Promising a more full-size performance out of its micro 9 series platform, Springfield Armory announced the new Hellcat Pro on Friday.
Using flush-fitting 15-round magazines rather than the standard Hellcat's 11+1, the Hellcat Pro brings a 3.7-inch hammer-forged barrel to the carry game in what Springfield says is a smaller footprint than any other gun in its class. For those keeping count at home, the Hellcat Pro runs 6.6 inches in overall length and 1 inch in width, which puts it in the same box as the nominally 10+1 capacity Glock 43X. At a height of 4.8 inches, the Hellcat Pro is a tad shorter than the G43X when the Austrian polymer pistol has its standard mag inserted.
"The Hellcat Pro delivers full-size performance in a concealable, EDC-ready package with unmatched ergonomics," says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s VP of marketing. "This is a pistol that shoots like a much larger handgun while still being extremely easy to conceal, offering you the best of both worlds."
The Springfield Armory Hellcat Pro ships with two 15-round magazines and has an MSRP of $634.
