posted on June 21, 2021

Safariland is known for making safety products that are designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets. Now they are rolling out new versions of of some of their most popular holsters that are designed for the Springfield Armory Hellcat. These Safariland and Bianchi holsters provide added utility to Springfield Armory’s popular micro-compact 9 mm pistol.

“Springfield Armory’s Hellcat has set a new standard for everyday carry,” said Eric Gasvoda, Vice President and General Manager for The Safariland Group duty gear division. “Safariland’s holsters provide a wide variety of options for Hellcat owners. From appendix carry with Bianchi’s new custom-fit Model 100 to the security of Safariland’s ALS system in the 7TS line, Safariland and Bianchi are bringing decades of experience to holsters for today’s most versatile firearms.”

Safariland and Bianchi holsters for the Hellcat include the following models: Bianchi’s Model 100 IWB holster, which is a classic leather holster that offers a minimalist profile but is still comfortable enough to wear all day long. The model for the Hellcat is the size 16 version, and fits that pistol perfectly.

The Safariland 7TS holster platform is designed to be worn in many different configurations. The holster is available with a paddle, belt slide, belt loops or a belt clip, and with its Automatic Locking System (ALS), the 7TS can also be configured to work as a shoulder holster.

For IWB carry for your Hellcat, take at look at Safariland’s Model 27. The holster offers a SafariLaminate body with adjustable tension for good retention, providing you security and comfort with a classic leather look.

The 575 GLS from Safariland has even more retention, combining inside the waistband carry with Safariland’s Grip Locking System. As you grip your Hellcat in this holster, your index finger moves the GLS lever, allowing for a natural and intuitive draw. 

MSRP for each of these holsters varies with the holster model. For more information on holsters for the Springfield Armory Hellcat or other products from Safariland, please visit
