Also available in an optics ready OSP™ configuration, the Hellcat gives you The Capacity to Defend.

IN DESERT FDE
The frame is molded from Desert FDE polymer while the coating on the slide is a rugged Cerakote finish for a lifetime of worry-free carry. The new color offers an attractive contrast to the black Melonite® coated hammer-forged barrel and black controls.
CLASS LEADING 11+1 CAPACITY
The Hellcat is the highest capacity micro-compact 9mm in the world. The 3"-barreled pistol measures a mere 1" wide and weighs just 18.3 oz. empty yet features a class-leading capacity of 11 rounds with flush-fitting magazine. Its extended magazine bumps up the round count to 13.
OPTICS READY MODEL AVAILABLE
With the increasing popularity of optics ready carry guns, the Hellcat is also offered in an OSP™ (Optical Sight Pistol) configuration with a milled slide to accept the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market. Recommended micro red dots: JP Enterprises JPoint™ and Shield RMSc. Optics mount directly to the slide for the smallest possible footprint.
20K ROUNDS & COUNTING
The Hellcat proved its mettle previously in a 10,000 round test. Now, Paul Carlson, owner of Safety Solutions Academy, has taken that same exact pistol (serial # AT234795) and pushed it to 20,000 rounds! With support from Federal Ammunition and Action Target, Carlson and a team of shooters proved the Hellcat’s extreme durability and reliability for a pistol of its size. Every round is captured on video as the Hellcat topples yet another milestone.
Hammer Forged Barrel
The Hellcat® sports an unnaturally accurate hammer forged barrel that makes it an exceptionally straight shooting concealment pistol.
Top Slide Serrations
Top slide serrations make it easy to rack the Hellcat® in a hurry if life goes truly sideways.
Customize your EDC with lights and lasers that fit on a non-proprietary accessory rail.
The Hellcat® has a flat trigger face that promotes consistent trigger engagement and positive control.
Reversible Mag Release
The magazine release of the Hellcat® is easily reversible at the user level.
Loaded Chamber Indicator
The loaded chamber indicator on the Hellcat® is readily discernable both visually and by feel.
Right out of the box the Hellcat comes with two magazines, a patented 11-round mag with pinky extension and a 13-round extended mag. A flush plate is also included to give the pistol as small of a footprint as possible.
TRITIUM U-DOT SIGHT PICTURE
The ability to quickly locate your front sight is crucial for fast and accurate shot placement. The Hellcat features a high visibility tritium & luminescent front sight paired with a Tactical Rack U-Dot™ rear sight for easy target acquisition in all lighting conditions.
ADAPTIVE GRIP TEXTURE
The custom pressure activated grip texture on the Hellcat frame features a pattern of staggered pyramid shapes. The taller pyramids have a flattened top to ensure comfort in the waistband and minimal wear on clothing. The shorter pyramids come to a point and lock in to your hand for a secure hold when the pistol is firmly gripped.
