Springfield Hellcat 9mm Recoil Management

At the back of the Springfield Hellcat 9mm subcompact pistol’s grip, the beavertail extends beyond the rear of the slide and encourages a high grip that works in conjunction with the high triggerguard cut above the frontstrap. The results are minimal muzzle rise during recoil.

As a result of our tests, Guns & Ammo Staff has determined that grip angle is a subjective preference despite a company’s marketing. Regardless of your opinion, the Springfield Hellcat manages to transcend those advertisements and pleases virtually everyone.
