The Springfield Armory Hellcat has proven itself a mainstay in the world of micro-compact concealed carry firearms. We here at Tulster have been excited to offer excellent IWB and OWB holsters for it, going so far as to offer variants for the ever-popular Hellcat RDP that was released in 2021 and featured a newly added compensator.
To our surprise, Springfield released the Hellcat Pro earlier this year. Before getting our hands on it, numerous responses came in inquiring about the compatibility with our current Hellcat holsters. “The Hellcat Pro seems to be a bit longer, so will your Hellcat RDP w/ Comp holster fit it?”. The answer is no.
Holsters For the Hellcat Pro
The Hellcat Pro is an entirely new firearm design, sharing none of the dimensions of the original. Because of this, our R&D team buckled down and began development on entirely new holsters intentionally designed for the Hellcat Pro, including both inside and outside the waistband holsters.
The Hellcat Pro features a lengthened grip, which houses the flush-fitting 15-round magazine, along with a longer frame. The Hellcat Pro also features a lengthened dustcover area, which provides more rail to accommodate a larger selection of WMLs — weapon-mounted lights — and laser attachments. Like all Tulster holsters, our offerings for the Hellcat Pro are designed in-house to the exact dimensions of the holster and feature a trigger-guard-based retention system. Because of this, lights and lasers do not fit in the Hellcat Pro holsters that we offer at this time. However, we are currently in the process of developing a new line of light-bearing holsters which is planned to launch in 2024.
Mag Carriers For the Hellcat Pro
The 15-round magazine of the Hellcat Pro is a stunning addition to the micro-compact “staggered stack” selection of magazines. Like all staggered stack magazines, the Hellcat Pro will be compatible with our 9/40 Double Stack Echo Carrier. This same carrier will also fit the original Hellcat magazines. Simply use the included Allen wrench to adjust the patented MRD, Mag Retention Device. This pushes the backside of the magazine into the angled channel of the carrier, keeping it completely secure.
Whether it’s the low-profile, minimalistic IWB Profile Holster, the light-bearing Profile+ holster, the tuckable, highly secure next-level IWB OATH, the innovative ultra-concealable CCW OWB Contour holster, or our OWB Range+ paddle holster, Tulster has something for every Hellcat Pro end-user on the market.
Keep an eye out as we continue to produce high-quality, precision fit holsters for upcoming offerings from Springfield, Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith and Wesson, and more.
