Springfield Armory: Hellcat Pro with Shield SMSc Optic

GENESEO, ILL. (9/29/22) – Combining the performance of a larger handgun with class-leading concealability to provide an exceptional everyday carry pistol, the Springfield Armory® Hellcat® Pro 9mm pistol is now offered packaged with the Shield SMSc 4 M.O.A. micro red dot optic.

Developed to offer the perfect balance between portability and performance, the Hellcat Pro is a compact pistol chambered in 9mm that offers 15+1 capacity in a smaller footprint than any other gun in its class. Maintaining the ergonomic, slim profile of the original Hellcat for seamless concealability, the compact 9mm still packs in its impressive capacity.

Developed with the use of red dot optics in mind, the Hellcat Pro features an OSP™ (Optical Sight Pistol) configuration. The slide is milled with the Springfield Micro™ footprint, designed to direct mount the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market for the lowest mount possible. The included Shield SMSc 4 M.O.A. red dot fits the slide cut perfectly, combining rugged durability with reliable performance.

The Shield optic weighs just a hair over ½ ounce and is powered by a single included CR2032 battery for years of use without replacement. The optic automatically adjusts the brightness of the dot for seamless use, and it co-witnesses with the Hellcat Pro’s U-Dot™ sights that are 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 Hellcat Pro, the pistol features a versatile Picatinny rail on the dustcover portion of the frame. This generous section of rail provides users the flexibility to deploy a wide range of accessories for varied applications and conditions. 

“The Hellcat Pro with Shield SMSc delivers an EDC-ready pistol that provides both impressive performance as well as capacity on par with a full-size handgun, and all in a very compact package,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “This is a pistol that shoots like a much larger handgun while still being extremely easy to conceal, yet offering red dot optics capability with the included Shield SMSc.”

With an MSRP of $840 and packed with two 15-round magazines, the Hellcat Pro with Shield SMSc offers shooters an exceptional everyday carry pistol with a high-performance optic that delivers the perfect balance for the most demanding performance-minded shooters.
