Springfield Armory debuted their Hellcat pistol as the “world’s highest capacity, micro-compact” several years ago, and they have been building out that family of pistols ever since. This includes their Hellcat RDP (Rapid Defense Package), Hellcat Pro (longer barrel, longer grip), and OSP variants (“Optical Sight Pistol” – optics ready). Now, they have announced the most feature-rich iteration yet with the unveiling of the Hellcat Pro Comp OSP.

Geneseo, Illinois – June 4th, 2024 – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the launch of the Hellcat® Pro Comp OSP™ 9mm pistol. Integrally compensated to reduce felt recoil and muzzle rise, the Hellcat® Pro Comp is meticulously engineered to offer the perfect balance between concealability and capacity.

The integral compensator featured on the Hellcat Pro Comp is discreetly designed with a single port on the top of the hammer-forged slide and barrel. Redirecting gas upwards, it effectively reduces muzzle rise and enhances control. The result is a pistol that delivers faster and more accurate follow-up shots. In addition, the front sight is positioned behind the compensator for an uninterrupted sight picture.

“The Hellcat Pro was designed to deliver full-size performance in a concealable, EDC-ready package with unmatched ergonomics,” said Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “Now with the Hellcat Pro Comp, shooters have a new option that combines advanced performance with ease of concealability.”

  • INTEGRAL COMPENSATOR – The integral compensator featured on the Hellcat Pro Comp is discreetly designed with a single port on the top of the hammer-forged slide and barrel. Redirecting gas upwards, it effectively reduces muzzle rise and enhances control. The result is a pistol that delivers faster and more accurate follow-up shots. In addition, the front sight is positioned behind the compensator for an uninterrupted sight picture.
  • OPTICS-READY – With a milled slide fitting the Springfield Micro™ footprint, the Hellcat® Pro Comp is an OSP™ configuration designed to accept today’s most popular micro red dots.
  • 3.7″ HAMMER FORGED BARREL – The 3.7” barrel of the Hellcat® Pro Comp offers enhanced ballistics and downrange performance and is hammer forged for impressive strength and durability.
  • TWO MAGAZINES INCLUDED – The Hellcat® Pro Comp comes with two magazines, a flush-fitting 15-round mag for concealability and an extended 17-rounder.
  • HANDGUN CASE INCLUDED – A double-zipper case is included with each Springfield Armory handgun. The soft-sided shell ensures the firearm and mounted accessories are protected during transportation, while an interior pouch can hold an additional magazine.

It’s amazing that 10 years ago it was difficult to get an optics-ready pistol with a compensator without custom work being done, and now we have that available in factory packages in carry-sized handguns. “Oh, what a time to be alive!” As always, let us know all of your thoughts about Springfield Armory and the Hellcat Pro Comp OSP 9mm in the Comments below!
