The Springfield Armory Hellcat is one of the most popular high-capacity micro 9mm pistols on the market. It is already available in several versions, including “OSP” optics-ready versions and Flat Dark Earth models. New two-tone models will soon be available for those wanting a different look.

Both the standard model and OSP versions are available in the new two-tone finish. The Hellcat Pro will not be an option in this finish. These two-tone stainless models are exclusive to Sports South, a major national firearm distributor. I checked the Sports South website, and they were not yet available to order as of August 1st. Springfield is currently running one of their Gear Up promotions, which offers three free magazines and a range bag with the purchase of any new Springfield Armory striker-fired handgun. That promotion runs through the end of August.
From the manufacturer:
Springfield Armory® Announces Exclusive Two-Tone Stainless Hellcat® and Hellcat® OSP™ Pistols
GENESEO, ILL. (08/01/22) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of two-tone stainless steel Hellcat® and Hellcat® OSP™ micro 9mm pistols, exclusive variants developed specifically for sale by distributor Sports South.
The Hellcat and Hellcat OSP (which stands for “Optical Sight Pistol”) have proven themselves to be class-leading concealed carry options. The 3″ barreled micro compact pistols feature an impressive capacity of 11+1 with their patented magazine, and 13+1 with the included extended mag. Both offerings ship with one 11-round magazine with pinky extension and optional flush-fitting floorplate as well as the 13-round extended magazine. In addition, the OSP version features a removable cover plate that allows direct mounting of a micro red dot in the Springfield Micro™ footprint for the lowest possible profile. This allows for co-witnessing with the pistol’s U-Dot™ sight system, made up of a high visibility tritium and luminescent front sight paired with a tactical rack U-notch rear. The U-Dot sights are offered on both the OSP and standard model.
“These new Sports South-exclusive Hellcats in stainless steel take everything that made the original Hellcat great and add an eye-catching two-tone look,” says Phil Rawlings, Vice President of Sales and LE for Springfield Armory. “These new Hellcat and Hellcat OSP pistols from Sports South make a great option for CCW and self-defense.
Combining exceptional style with the proven performance of these micro 9mm pistols, the Sports South-exclusive Stainless Hellcats definitely deserve a close look for EDC. MSRP of the standard model is $614, and the OSP model is priced at $649.
