Last September Springfield unleashed the Hellcat pistol. A high capacity micro subcompact pistol into the emerging and flourishing market. The original Hellcat was released in a sleek Black Nitride matte finish. Now, Springfield Armory has released a new Hellcat dipped in Cerakote Flat Dark Earth.

The Hellcat features multiple high capacity magazines, an exclusive Adaptive Grip texture, a flat face trigger, an U-Dot tritium sights. The new FDE Hellcat comes in an optics ready version as the original Hellcat did. The Hellcat with the U-Dot sights will retail for $610 MSRP. The Hellcat Optics Ready will retail for $643 MSRP.

Below is the press release and features of the Springfield Armory Hellcat FDE.
