Last year the Springfield Hellcat took the market and industry by storm. Springfield had design and built a new micro-compact pistol that was competitive in the merging market. The Hellcat was named ‘Handgun Of Year’ from Guns And Ammo. Now, Springfield is releasing a low-capacity version called the Hellcat OSP (Optical Sight Picture).

Below, is the press release for the new Hellcat OSP from Springfield Armory.

Press Release

GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the new 10-Round Hellcat® and Hellcat® OSP™ pistols. This new offering provides those in locales requiring restricted capacities an opportunity to own the most popular concealed carry pistol available.

The 3″ barreled micro compact pistol was developed to offer shooters a cutting-edge CCW pistol with rugged durability. The +P rated handgun features a hammer forged steel barrel and billet machined slide, both featuring a Melonite™ coating. The lightweight and strong frame features Adaptive Grip Texture™, a seamless, pressure-activated texture featuring a pattern of staggered pyramid shapes. The taller pyramids have a flattened top to ensure comfort in the waistband, while the shorter pyramids come to a point and are engaged when the pistol is firmly gripped. A reversible mag release and non-proprietary accessory rail for lights and lasers ensure maximum adaptability.

The OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) variant of the Hellcat features a removable seamless cover plate that allows direct mounting of a micro red dot to the slide for the lowest possible profile. Complementing the ability to mount a red dot optic is the Hellcat’s U-Dot™ sight system, offered on both the OSP and standard non-optic model. It is made up of a high-visibility tritium and luminescent front sight paired with a tactical rack U-notch rear. The direct-mount capability of the OSP allows for co-witnessing of the U-Dot sights with a red dot for ultimate instinctive target engagement.

“The Hellcat has proven to be extremely popular since its launch due to its quality, capabilities and performance,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Now, with these new 10-round versions of the pistol in both standard and OSP versions, even more shooters have the chance to own the best concealed carry pistol on the market.
