New Springfield Armory Hellcat Magazine - 15 Rounds of 9mm Heat

Springfield Armory has taken its Hellcat pistol — a small, high-capacity micro-compact 9mm handgun — and increased its ammo capacity with the new 15-round magazine.

The new Springfield Armory Hellcat 15-round magazine, which is only slightly longer than the 13-round extended version, is currently available directly from Springfield Armory with an MSRP of $39.95 and will soon be available from retailers as well. It is offered in both black and Desert FDE.

The Hellcat is available in both standard and OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) versions, with the latter featuring slides cut to accept the smallest micro red-dot sights on the market. The micro 9mm ships with a patented 11-round magazine as well as an extended 13-round magazine, and this newest magazine will allow users to have a full 15+1 rounds of 9mm ammo ready to go.

“This magazine offers Hellcat owners the ability to increase the total capacity of their pistol by two rounds or to carry a larger 15-round mag as a back-up,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “This increased capacity puts the Hellcat platform even further beyond its competitors and means users can carry with even greater confidence.”

Joe Kurtenbach, Executive Editor for Guns & Ammo, noted, “I was among the first in the industry to test the Hellcat platform before it was introduced, and I’ve continued to evaluate the new configurations and accessories that have been launched since. I stand by my original assessment that Hellcat is a great step forward for Springfield Armory’s polymer-frame pistol lineup, exhibiting thoughtful design and relentless reliability. Now, as with the Hellcat RDP’s self-indexing compensator, the 15-round magazine adds tangible utility to the gun—literally, you can feel the difference. Not only does it provide more ammunition onboard or in a reload, it allows shooters to easily get a full firing grip for maximum control on the draw and during recoil. The pinky rest and extended base of the 11- and 13-round mags were very good, the grip on the 15-rounder is excellent.”

The Hellcat has received numerous awards since its release in 2019, including the 2020 Handgun of the Year Award from the National Rifle Association’s American Rifleman, the Guns & Ammo 2020 Handgun of the Year Award, Ballistic magazine’s Ballistics’ Best 2020 Reader’s Choice Award for Best Compact Handgun, the NTOA MTR Gold Award, and more.
