Springfield Armory® Announces Release of Desert FDE Hellcat® Pro OSP™ Threaded

Featuring an extended 4.4” threaded barrel, the Springfield Armory® Hellcat® Pro OSP™ Threaded — now offered in Desert FDE — combines the performance of a larger handgun with class-leading concealability. The result is an exceptional everyday carry pistol ready to accept the suppressor or muzzle device of your choice.

Designed to deliver the perfect balance, this new Hellcat Pro is a compact pistol chambered in 9mm that offers 15+1 capacity with the included flush-fit magazine and 17+1 capacity with the included extended magazine. This EDC-ready 9mm packs in impressive capacity while still maintaining the ergonomic, slim profile of the original Hellcat for seamless concealability.

The barrel of this new Desert FDE Hellcat Pro OSP, like the original, is made from hammer-forged steel with a black Melonite finish that sets off nicely against the Cerakote® Desert FDE slide. Featuring a 1:10” rate of twist, the barrel has .5×28 threading for accepting a wide range of suppressors and muzzle devices.

Featuring an OSP configuration, which stands for “Optical Sight Pistol”, the Hellcat Pro OSP Threaded in Desert FDE has a slide milled with the Springfield Micro™ footprint. It is designed to direct mount the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market for the lowest mount possible. Backing up your choice of optic is an excellent set of co-witnessing U-Dot™ sights, made up of a high visibility tritium & luminescent front sight paired with a Tactical Rack rear sight.

Ensuring you can mount the light or laser of your choice on the pistol, it features a versatile Picatinny rail on the dustcover portion of the frame. This longer section of rail provides users the flexibility to deploy a wide range of accessories for varied applications and conditions.

“The Hellcat Pro OSP has proven itself to be a highly capable EDC pistol that combines full-size pistol performance with class-leading concealability,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “With the new Desert FDE version of the Hellcat Pro OSP Threaded, shooters have an eye-catching and capable new option for their CCW needs.”

Packed with one 15-round magazine and one 17-round magazine with a Desert FDE extended basepad, the Hellcat Pro OSP Threaded in Desert FDE offers shooters an exceptional everyday carry pistol featuring enhanced capabilities. MSRP is $710.
