Springfield Armory debuted the world’s highest capacity micro-compact only a few years ago with their Hellcat which set the firearms industry on fire. It boasted solid handling with its Adaptive Grip Texture, high capacity with 11-round flush plus 13-round extended magazines, and it was an incredibly small footprint for concealed carry. Now, Springfield has upped the ante on this darling of the self-defense market by creating a Hellcat Pro! A version of the Hellcat with even more capacity, rail space for accessories, a longer barrel, and smoother recoil.
