Springfield Announces Hellcat RDP
HELLCAT® RDP™ HANDGUNS
The Hellcat®, the highest capacity micro 9mm in the world, is now offered in the Rapid Defense Package (RDP™) configuration. Paired with a HEX™ micro red dot and a Self Indexing Compensator the Hellcat RDP delivers fast target acquisition and rapid, accurate follow‐up shots. Also new on the Hellcat RDP is an optional ambidextrous manual safety and the Gen 2 trigger with enhanced ergonomics.
RAPID DEFENSE PACKAGE
For instant target acquisition the Hellcat RDP is outfitted with the all new HEX™ Wasp™, a low profile, micro red dot that co‐witnesses with the Hellcat's U‐Dot™ sights. The Hellcat RDP also features a threaded barrel fitted with a patent‐pending, Self Indexing compensator. Made of strong and lightweight aircraft‐grade Hardcoat anodized aluminum the proprietary design reduces muzzle rise and keeps you on target, shot after shot.
SELF INDEXING COMPENSATOR
Tame muzzle rise with the patent pending Springfield Armory Self Indexing Compensator made of aircraft‐grade Hardcoat anodized aluminum. This compensator vents gasses upward putting downward pressure on the muzzle greatly reducing muzzle rise for better control and faster follow up shots.
The Hellcat RDP features a compact and capable compensator that maximizes rapid fire muzzle control. Machined from 8082 aluminum and anodized matte black, the compensator has a patent‐pending Self Indexing design that makes installation or removal easy and does not require shims or additional parts for proper timing.
The 3.8" hammer‐forged barrel of the Hellcat RDP is extended and threaded, and features a tough Melonite® finish. (.5 x 28)
TRITIUM U‐DOT SIGHTS
The Hellcat RDP features a high visibility tritium & luminescent front sight paired with a Tactical Rack U‐Dot™ rear sight for easy target acquisition.
11 & 13‐ROUND MAGAZINES
The Hellcat RDP comes with two magazines ‐ a patented 11‐round mag with pinky extension and a 13‐round extended mag.
HEX WASP RED DOT
Included with the Hellcat RDP is the all new HEX™ Wasp™ ‐ a micro‐sized red dot optic designed to pair perfectly with the Hellcat. Optimized for direct, low‐mounting the Wasp presents intuitively and co‐witnesses with the Hellcat's irons. A $299 value, the Wasp features a premium glass lens, a tough machined 6061 aluminum body and 65,000 hours of battery life. HEX is a special project by Springfield Armory, visit hexoptics.com for full specifications.
GEN 2 TRIGGER
