The Hellcat Pro OSP From Springfield Armory Now Comes With A Threaded Barrel
26 May 2023
The Springfield Armory Hellcat Pro OSP with Threaded Barrel is a new compact pistol that combines the performance of a larger handgun with class-leading concealability. The pistol features a 4.4-inch threaded barrel that is compatible with a wide range of suppressors and muzzle devices. It also has a milled slide that is ready to accept micro red dots, making it a versatile and powerful option for concealed carry.
This latest iteration of the Hellcat brings the Springfield micro-compact 9mm offering in line with other popular options on the market in the same category that also has adopted threaded barrel variants. A threaded barrel allows for the attachment of a suppressor, which can reduce noise and recoil.
The Hellcat Pro OSP is built on a durable and lightweight polymer frame. The grip is textured for a secure hold, and the pistol has a loaded chamber indicator and a reversible magazine release for added safety and convenience. The pistol also comes with two 15-round magazines, giving you plenty of ammunition for self-defence.
According to the company, in terms of performance, the Hellcat Pro OSP is impressive. The 4.4-inch barrel provides good accuracy and velocity, and the pistol is easy to control even with a suppressor attached. The trigger is smooth and consistent, and the pistol is comfortable to shoot even for extended periods of time.
Some people prefer the added noise reduction and recoil reduction that a suppressor provides, while others prefer the simplicity and portability of a standard barrel. The Hellcat Pro OSP with Threaded Barrel is a reliable and flexible pistol that is ready for any situation. It features a Picatinny rail for mounting accessories and comes with two 15-round magazines. The MSRP is US$667.
Whether or not you choose to add a suppressor to your Hellcat Pro OSP is a personal decision. Some people prefer the added noise reduction and recoil reduction that a suppressor provides, while others prefer the simplicity and portability of a standard barrel.
Overall, the Springfield Armory Hellcat Pro OSP with Threaded Barrel is an excellent choice for concealed carry. It is compact, lightweight, and powerful, and it is compatible with a wide range of accessories. If you are looking for a new concealed carry pistol, the Hellcat Pro OSP is worth considering. Unfortunately, there is no airsoft version.
