    I’m a GM guy anyways.. lol!

    My LGS got in the Hellcat from their distributor rep today! $499+tax but it comes with cardboard instead of a case. Nonetheless, it feels better in hand to me than my Sig P365 front to backstrap wize... I plan on running a couple hundred rds thru it soon! Mine cam with the 11round pinkie mag finger rest installed it feels perfect in hand. I’ll definitely be buying more of these mags when the come available.

    I wonder how long they’ll be out before they off their magazine deal with it like they were with the other handguns past couple summers.

    Me too. That’s why I’m waiting on Springfield’s next pistol, the Z06.

    Yes.. I might trade a Glock 43 off though.. I have 2 of them and a G48... I’m intrigued by the strike 15 round mags that are in production for the G48.. the G43 is DOA for any new customers at this point in the micro 9mm game really... I hate to say..

    That's a lot of horsepower in such a small package.

    Which mags did it come with? Youtubers said it came with the 13 rounder too. Is that correct?

    Glock needs to come out with a direct competitor (a 10+ round gun in the dimensions of a 43.

    Agreed. People like myself who really only like Glocks for striker fired guns buy Sig's and Springfield's that we don't really want solely because Glock isn't innovating.

    If GLOCK doesn’t do it, that should be the next thing from Shield Arms. Make a shortened version of their 15 round G48 magazine. Now I realize this won’t fit a G43, HOWEVER, grip chop a 43X down to 43 size and there you go. :smoking:
