Springfield Armory Announces Hellcat OSP with Manual Ambi Safety

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Springfield Armory is pleased to announce a new option for concealed carriers who want the benefits of the highest-capacity micro 9mm handgun in the world, along with the added security of a manual safety.

The Springfield Hellcat OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) is now available with an optional ambidextrous, low-profile manual thumb safety. While the Hellcat’s numerous passive safety mechanisms make the striker-fired handgun safe to carry and operate, this new option is ideal for those that prefer the addition of a manual safety.

Disengaging the frame-mounted safety merely requires a downward sweep of the thumb on either side of the pistol. The edges of the Hellcat safety levers on both sides are contoured to be snag proof for smooth drawing and re-holstering, and the surfaces are lightly serrated for positive engagement by the user.

“The Springfield Armory Hellcat OSP with manual safety gives users yet another option with this exceptional concealed carry pistol,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With the addition of the safety and its OSP red dot mounting capability, this Hellcat is a great EDC option.”

Just like the original Hellcat OSP, this new model comes with an 11- and a 13-round magazine and is packed with premium features like a 3” hammer-forged Melonite-coated barrel, co-witness tritium U-Dot™ sights, Adaptive Grip Texture and much more. The result is a pistol that is ready to give you The Capacity to Defend™.

I was hesitant when I bought the first Hellcat because it didn’t have a thumb safety but I liked the fact it held more than 8 rounds and had problems with both of my Sig P938’s. So, I contemplated it and bought one. After practicing with it 5 times or so and getting used to a gun that did not have a thumb safety I finally decided I like it better because it is one less thing I have to deal with when I draw my pistol. I bought a We the People IWB for it. I like it because… Read more »

I only own one handgun at the moment and I purchased it (beretta px4) because it has a thumb safety. It usually stays inside my camera bag or tote not in a holster so thumb safety was a need for me

If that is how I carried that is exactly the kind of weapon I would have. With my P938 I had an IWB that was not a holster it was a plastic bar that stuck up on a plastic bar that was L shaped. I liked it in the beginning because when I reached for it, I had the whole pistol in my hand but I started noticing that when I sat down in the truck and then got out to go in the store and I would reach down to feel that it was safe the safety was actually… Read more »
