Springfield Armory is releasing new specialized color offerings for their very popular Hellcat and Hellcat Pro 9mm pistols.

The Hellcat and Hellcat Pro have proven themselves to be class-leading concealed carry options. The 3 inch barreled micro compact Hellcat pistol has a magazine capacity of 11+1 with the standard magazine and ships with a 13+1 capacity magazine for even more peace of mind. The Hellcat Pro, on the other hand, features a 3.7 inch barrel and has a flush-fitting 15-round magazine.

“These new specialty offerings in the Hellcat line give customers exciting new color options for their CCW needs,” says Phil Rawlings, Vice President of Sales and LE for Springfield Armory. “From Burnt Bronze to Robin’s Egg Blue, there’s a Hellcat variant that’s just right for your needs.”

The Hellcat is offered in both standard and “Optical Sight Pistol” versions. The OSP variant features a removable cover plate that allows for the direct mounting of a micro red dot sight using the Springfield Micro footprint, giving you the lowest possible profile. This low-profile mount allows for co-witnessing the pistol’s U-Dot sight system with the optic, eliminating the need for suppressor-height sights.

There are two lines the specialized color versions available. The first is made up of the Hellcat OSP and Hellcat Pro with a “burnt bronze” Cerakote finish on the slide, which is complemented by a low-profile black frame and black controls. The other line is consists of the Hellcat, Hellcat OSP and Hellcat Pro, all of which feature a stainless steel slide that is matched with a robin’s egg blue frame.
