Anyone handled a SA Hellcat yet?

https://www.springfield-armory.com/hellcat-features/

I'm curious how it stacks up size wise to a M&Pc.

I can probably do that for you tomorrow. I'm assuming it hasn't been added to your list yet.

I don't know, I haven't checked as I just saw the add and wondered if anyone had handled one. By the numbers, it is smaller than the M&Pc that I carry but numbers and feel sometimes don't match up.

I'm interested in this and the P365.

I have a p365 and love it. I like it so much I just bought the nra p365. Iím still waiting for the hellcat to come in. My local shop is having issues getting it. I was hoping to get it in time for the November hand gun roster meeting.

I see you take being a collector seriously.

It's almost 1" shorter in the slide, 1/2" shorter in height, 6oz less and 1/4" skinnier than the m&p 9c(3.5"V1). In the hand it is MUCH smaller than the 9c. Thing is while the dimentions are almost the same as the P365, the Sig still feels better in the hand, and is smaller/more rounded especially in the slide. I like the larger front strap on the 365 vs the larger back strap on the Hellcat, the Sig has a better trigger. Have to hold both though, the Hellcat has a bit higher grip position, the larger grip might also fit bigger hands better.

It almost sounds like these "micro 9's" are as small as my Kahr P9 but with more capacity.

Way smaller, it's almost the same size as a PM/CM9. Grip feels better, more room on the front strap, higher grip position, and a little wider in the grip with a similarly skinny slide. The new P365XL with 12rd mag is about the size of the P9, just a hair longer/heavier.
