GENESEO, ILL. (08/01/22) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of two-tone stainless steel Hellcat® and Hellcat® OSP™ micro 9mm pistols, exclusive variants developed specifically for sale by distributor Sports South.
The Hellcat and Hellcat OSP (which stands for “Optical Sight Pistol”) have proven themselves to be class-leading concealed carry options. The 3″ barreled micro compact pistols feature an impressive capacity of 11+1 with their patented magazine, and 13+1 with the included extended mag. Both offerings ship with one 11-round magazine with pinky extension and optional flush-fitting floorplate as well as the 13-round extended magazine.
In addition, the OSP version features a removable cover plate that allows direct mounting of a micro red dot in the Springfield Micro™ footprint for the lowest possible profile. This allows for co-witnessing with the pistol’s U-Dot™ sight system, made up of a high visibility tritium and luminescent front sight paired with a tactical rack U-notch rear. The U-Dot sights are offered on both the OSP and standard model.
“These new Sports South-exclusive Hellcats in stainless steel take everything that made the original Hellcat great and add an eye-catching two-tone look,” says Phil Rawlings, Vice President of Sales and LE for Springfield Armory. “These new Hellcat and Hellcat OSP pistols from Sports South make a great option for CCW and self-defense.”
Combining exceptional style with the proven performance of these micro 9mm pistols, the Sports South-exclusive Stainless Hellcats definitely deserve a close look for EDC. MSRP of the standard model is $614, and the OSP model is priced at $649.
