Hellcat with the 13 round extended magazine gives a full three-finger grip (Dan Z for TTAG). Their pistols are almost as affordable as Hi Points (yeah yeah I know, but at least they’re reliable) and from what I’ve read their cs is also great. The Hellcat features a hammer forged barrel, full length guide rod and dual captive recoil springs. We always called it deck tape, but I never heard it called skateboard tape either. I prefer this system, given that it has a good, smooth trigger design. The grip safety is too shallow, grip the gun wrong, or wearing gloves in cold weather and no click or bang for you. Oh, OK. Here’s one photo of the two of them together . Height: 4″ (flush magazine), 4.5″ (extended magazine) Hey Springfield Arms…is it really your position that you had NO idea that YOUR OWN Trade Association was doing this and, that by the time you found out what they were doing, that “it was too late”??? It's American ingenuity.
Follow-up shots were easy and accurate. Not only did S&W and Ruger stab gun owners and the 2nd Amendment in the back they were proud to do it as the Government offered them carve outs that they proudly took. Springfield molded a slight finger groove in the Hellcat’s black polymer grip, but it’s slight enough that it won’t bother those who dislike them. Then a slew of several other single-stack 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP. I just bought the Hellcat and for the price, it’s awesome.
Just about my only real complaint with the Hellcat’s design is the slide serrations. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment.
Has anyone else had a problem with finish wear on the slide of the dark earth model? Unscrupulous polesmokers like that will bankrupt companies to achieve political ends whereas no matter how pro-gun some other CEO is they’re probably not going to spend their company into oblivion just to virtue signal to us. However, as I deem you the Godfather of pistol reviews, I will trust your answer. For instance modern 9mm is a decent and popular round now, but there’s a big difference in its performance coming out of what is essentially a 2” barrel then a 4-5” barrel. Premier components for quick-handling, improved accuracy, and performance comparable to custom AR builds costing much more. You can almost buy 3 SCCYs or the price of one Sig 365.
So the training department sold the idea of dropping down to 9mm because it was easier to train with and there had been great advances in 9mm ammunition. As someone who regularly carries a single-stack GLOCK 43, the transition to packing a Hellcat was a smooth one. In a small firearm like the Hellcat (Sig P365) I use the standard pressure loadings (I prefer 124 grain)…the +P ammunition offers very little advantage from such a short barrel and is harder on your hand and the frame / slide of small autos.

U may as well buy terrorist made guns from Turkey who support & fund ISIS! We’ll do a separate side-by-side comparison post of the Hellcat and the P365 since 1) that’s the competitor Springfield clearly had in its sights when designing the new gun, and 2) you, dear reader, no doubt want to know how the Hellcat stacks up against the big boy on the block. (and you don’t have that slimy feeling on your conscience afterwards). No problem at all. “The problem is the serrations just aren’t aggressive enough.
The Super Match is the culmination of unsurpassed workmanship and all the best competition-legal features you can pack into a match rifle. F*** them. That being said, its no SIG trigger. I hear this has primer drag as well. Let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! Guess you don’t live here in the once just okay state of Illinois.

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to California consumers about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
George I’m going to give it about four or five months before I get one, to see if there are any issues. Was this really “a result of their (SA) push & support” or was this inevitable after dems picking up extra house seats and winning the governor race? All the common ammo that is, 22, 9mm, 40s&w, 45acp, 223, 556 and 300 blackout. Prevent child access by always keeping guns locked away and unloaded when not in use.

Combining the legendary power and accuracy of the M1A with the quick handling and fast sight acquisition of a scout style rifle. Puke!
Try a sampling of Speer Gold Dots, Federal HST’s, Remington Golden Sabers, Hornady Critical Defense. Mine had issues with Sig V Crown both 115 and 124 grain along with the new Sig CCW hollow points. (Dan Z for TTAG). Sig has by far the best out-of-the box triggers on the market imho, the hellcat doesn’t even come close to it, but it works. It used to be if you wanted high-capacity in a striker fired handgun you had accept a bulkier gun. The XD-M is the perfect pistol for those looking for large caliber performance in a full size platform. I also shot the Hellcat braced using the red dot at 25 yards.

Since its release, the Hellcat has not only become one of my favorite handguns, it’s earned a place as my daily carry pistol. It’d be really funny if we called it handgun tape. Unlike Springfield Armory who is still the same Springfield Armory who sold out Illinois gun owners not that long ago. Huh.
Over the years I’ve carried a multitude of CCW pistols, going back to the Walther PPK 380.
Springfield’s polymer guns have never been known for their style.
(Dan Z for TTAG). I really love the Springfield grip safeties. The SCCY w/ its 10 rounds of 9mm is the real competitor for the Sig 365.
For me it was the grip was smaller than any other pistols I own so I was canting it ever so slightly which translate to inches or ft down range. There’s a clean take-up with an ever-so-slight bump right before it’s fully staged. Who buys that line of s%$hi$%t??? Accuracy.
Not picking on 9, that goes for any round. Glocks sub compacts also have primer drag, but again, me nor anyone I know have ever broken a Glock firing pin. It shot range ammo just fine with no issues. I really enjoy my non-primer dragging P365XL. Go PROTEST Springfield, not here.
You never know what is lurking around the next corner, and the Springfield Hellcat for sale gives you the advantage you need to not just even the playing field, but dominate it.

I held a Hellcat alongside my P365 today at a local gun show. Springfield Hellcat (L) vs GLOCK 43 (R) Dan Z for TTAG. This became expensive what with overtime, etc. The RMSc red dot co-witnesses nicely with the Hellcat’s standard U-Dot night sights (more on those later). “…we (Rock River Arms) were as shocked as everyone else to find ourselves exempted from provisions of SB1657 and that IFMA (their trade association) was no longer opposing that bill, even though RRA still opposed it.”. Sig Sauer started the trend of the micro-compact, high-capacity, CCW pistol a few years ago with their P365. Caution
Going back to the beginning, Springfield Armory — like so many gun makers — is playing catch-up to the P365. (Dan Z for TTAG).
