Springfield hellcat 9mm

Postby PHATSPEED7x on Fri Nov 01, 2019 7:42 pm

Local dealer got some of them in and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. Was going to purchase a shield until I saw they had these in the case. Compared it side by side to the Sig Sauer P365 for a good 10 minutes before deciding on the hellcat. I like that it comes with the extended magazine standard vs with the sig you have to buy a extended mag as an accessory. Plus my dealer had the hellcat priced better than the P365. $499 vs $529.

Hopefully will get to the range Sunday and get some rounds down range. But from the target that was included with the pistol it seems to be pretty accurate. ImageImage

I really want one but can't stomach replacing all my XDS holsters, as I imagine they aren't compatible.

They are not. The trigger guard on the hellcat is much smaller. I actually am using a iwb xds holster til my new one for the hellcat comes in...

Same here. Also guessing resale value on my first gen XDS is pretty low. I rarely carry my XDS anymore though. My Kahr CW380 is usually my go to since it pockets so nicely.

I got to fondle one this evening. It didn't come home with me, but it didn't lessen my desire to buy one soon, either.

Got my black arch Rev Con holster last night for it. Fits like a glove! Image

Can I trouble you for a pic of the other side of the holster? I like 25 degree cant and wondering how easy it would be to modify this holster to that. Thanks in advance!
