    The Hellcat XL will be released long before a .40 Hellcat.

    My bet is no .40 and no .380.
    Why would they? The can sell all the 9mm guns they want. What they SHOULD do is bring out a 10 rd. mag for those folks behind enemy lines. There is a Blue State market there, and right now it is OWNED by the 365.

    With a stagger stack mag, it shouldn't lose a whole lot capacity.

    I agree that they will sell all the 9mm guns that they can produce.

    In the future there will be a HELLCAT .40 but who knows when......????

    It appears as though there may be more than two who still want a HELLCAT .40.

    We shall see what happens, won't we ???

    Since it's bigger/heavier than my CM40 (that has had a constant barrage of 40) I would say it shouldn't take a whole lot of engineering to make one that will hold up.

    I thought the Kahr's slide was a little bulkier than the P365 or Hellcat...

    I want one in 45 ACP.

    If you're going big and all.

    But it will be a single stack unless it has a larger grip frame.

    The hellcat is 9 staggered so the mag/grip wouldn't need to be wider to accommodate the 40. Just fewer rounds. 1 or 2 less.

    In theory maybe, But a G19 is a double stack and to fit 40 S&W in the same magazine, it's 2 less but in a staggered stack magazine it would likely be more, like 3 of 4 less which would result in a 7 or 8 round capacity.

    I don't believe so. Even in the single stack XDs models, where it would be even more pronounced, it's just 1 less.

    Time will tell.
