For those who prefer a manual safety on their carry pistol, Springfield Armory has introduced a new variant of their popular Hellcat® Pro 9mm pistol that comes with a frame-mounted ambidextrous manual safety. This latest addition provides an even greater level of versatility and safety for those who want an extra layer of protection.
The Hellcat Pro is designed to deliver the perfect balance of performance and concealability, with a compact size that offers 15+1 capacity in a smaller footprint than any other gun in its class. The slim-line grip measures just 1″ wide, making it comfortable to hold and easy to conceal, while the lightweight polymer frame features the Adaptive Grip Texture™, a seamless, pressure-activated texture that provides a secure grip.
The Hellcat Pro is also designed with the use of red dot optics in mind. It features an OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) configuration, with a slide that is milled with the Springfield Micro footprint, designed to direct mount the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market for the lowest mount possible. And with the U-Dot sights, shooters can co-witness their choice of optic with a tritium & luminescent front sight paired with a Tactical Rack rear sight.
“The Hellcat Pro delivers full-size performance in a concealable, EDC-ready package with unmatched ergonomics,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “And for those who prefer a manual safety on their carry pistol, this newest variant gives them everything they could want in a CCW pistol.”
The addition of the frame-mounted ambidextrous manual safety further enhances the pistol’s capabilities, making it natural and intuitive for both left- and right-handed users. The safety is located at the rear of the frame, and its low-profile yet easily engageable design ensures that it won’t get in the way when drawing from a holster.
The Hellcat Pro with manual safety is available in three models, with an MSRP of $649 for the base model, $859 with the optional Shield SMSc optic, and $649 for the low capacity version.
The Hellcat Pro is a versatile and reliable option for anyone looking for a compact, yet powerful, everyday carry pistol. And with the addition of the frame-mounted ambidextrous manual safety, it’s even safer and easier to use.
