Springfield Armory keeps churning out those varied colorways for 2023 and this week added a new two-tone option for the Hellcat Pro series.

Introduced last March in an all-black format and augmented last November by a Desert Flat Dark Earth edition, the newest Hellcat Pro runs a Platinum Gray Cerakote optics-ready slide contrasted with a black grip frame, surface controls, optics plate, and sights.

Other features include a Picatinny rail on the dust cover that is longer than the standard Hellcat, allowing for a wider range of accessories. The difference in overall length between the standard Hellcat and the longer Hellcat Pro is about half an inch. (Photo: Springfield Armory)

As with other Hellcat Pros, the new model ships with an optics configuration milled with the Shield RMSc/Springfield Micro footprint with a set of co-witnessing U-Dot tritium day/night sights. 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. However, it brings a 15+1 flush fit mag along for the ride. 

The Hellcat Pro platform was recently given a "gold" ranking in the "Member Tested and Recommended" program of the National Tactical Officers Association. 

A more exclusive run than the regular FDE and black models, the Platinum Gray Hellcat Pro is available through Sports South. The good news with that is most large FFLs are wired in to use Sports South, so the odds of being able to lay hands on one of these shark cats are high as long as you don't dawdle. 

Previous exclusive two-tones in the Hellcat Pro line included a Burnt Bronze Cerakote finish on the slide over a black polymer grip frame and a model with Robin’s Egg frames under stainless slides.
