Anyone seen one in stores yet? Better yet, anyone have one?
Seen one at TSA but didn't handle it. Looked nice, but slide lock looked similar place as on XDS and I could never not be on it, so it's a pass for me (not that it's a bad gun, or the XDS is bad, it's just not for me)
I’m wanting to fondle one to see if it’s for me. Just reading about it has got my interest up.
Buddy of mine has one, I took him to the range with me and we shot it. My take on it after putting about 100 rounds through are it feels like a well built gun, I liked the sights alot, BUT my daily carry is a p365 and I shoot it alot. I personally found the hellcat is quite a bit more snappy, also for me, something weird was going on and kept pinching my pinky between the mag and the gun every shot. Personally I prefer the 365 but the hellcat is a nice gun. If anyone wanted to try it in the Durham or Hillsborough area I'm sure I could get it over to Central Carolina gun club for a couple rounds.
Oh and just one addition, I've never shot one before but also was really not a fan of the flatface trigger. Ymmv
I have one from Grab a Gun. Definitely a class above my Shield. Sights take a little getting use to and factory trigger is heavy, mine measured 6.5lbs. Gun carries well in a Vedder Light Tuck IWB. The finish is very nice and tough. Fully loaded -13+1- it weights about the same as my Shield with 8+1.
Powder River Precision has just released a trigger kit ($ 108.) for the Hellcat to lower the pull and smooth out the sear release. My Hellcat is with the Gunsmith for installation right now.
I will update after I exercise the new trigger.
The Hellcat update. The Powder River Precision kit ($108.00) includes a new sear and a new spring, a new striker disconnect and its spring and a couple other springs. The OEM trigger was 6.5 lbs and the break was a little mushy. Post install the trigger press is 4 lbs +/- a couple of ounces. Both before and after measured on the same Lyman gauge. The break is smooth and very crisp. This morning I put 75 rounds, now for a total of 140 with zero malfunctions, and importantly no light primer strikes. I consider this money very well spent. The Hellcat is going to replace my Shield.
BTW the flat trigger gets no praise from me. I find them to be painful after 25 or 30 rounds. Future range trips will include a glove.
Good info Thanks Bill...……………..these tiny mega mag guns interest me...…………………...
Do you have small hands Billy?
I do not ask for the same reason Mr Trump wore out Sen Rubio
Because you have a deep seeded love for revolvers!
