    I got mine for $450 before a small transfer fee. I could see them going down to the $400 mark at some point.

    If the price lands anywhere between $400-$450 they fly off the shelf.

    As it is, they're flying off the shelf at $500. None of our local shops can keep them in stock for more than a few hours.

    Shot a very nice group with my dad’s Hellcat today with Critical Duty 124 +P. I commented that I’d probably buy one if I wasn’t so heavily invested in the Glock platform. He said ‘Don’t go buy one’.
    This close to Christmas, I 100% know what that phrase means when my dad says it :D

    I shot one. It was alright. It was reliable and accurate, but I shot the P365 much better.

    Same here. I visited two over the weekend and both were out of stock.

    I have liked all of my XD's. I do think they all seem a bit top-heavy, and you do hear derisive comments about Croatia, but I like them.

    It is a bit like driving a Lexus or Genesis. Are they rooted in old-world charm with soul and legendary tales? Nope. Mercedes and BMW owners will point out (accurately!) that the history is lacking. But do these relative new-comers do a great job keeping up with the traditional standard bearers in terms of performance and value? Yep. Often trumping them in the value category!

    I want to check out the Hellcat. If my prior experiences with the Croatian guns are any indicator, I feel pretty confident. Springfield as a company? They stand with S&W, Ruger and others who have been fairly promiscuous with both sides of the 2A debate.

    Yeah, about $30 more than Grabagun, SOSS, etc.. but they are usually out of stock. You can take solace in the fact that the mags are very nice and much less expensive than say 365 mags.
    Hope you enjoy the HC, I sure am.

    I shot another hundred rounds yesterday with no issues. Seems to be a very reliable firearm. The only things I don't care for is the sharp back right corner of the grip that digs into your palm and the looseness of the 13 round magazine. My Dremel took care of the sharp corner and the 13 rounders function just fine. A very fine CC gun over all.

    I didn't notice this at the range, but now that you mentioned it, I'll probably focus on it Thanks for that lol.

    You are welcone!

    My P365 did the exact same thing in the very same spot. Dremel or some fine sandpaper takes care of it.

    Nice. Dropping below the price of the 43X/48 would be huge for Springfield.

    Has anyone tried mounting lights on one yet? I'm planning on picking up a small light like a TLR-7 for my G19 if I find one for sale on Black Friday/Cyber Monday, and I might just buy two if I know it will also fit on the Hellcat.

    With the P365 being offered by Cabelas during a 5 day sale at $400; it might result in a price drop of the Hellcat. It's going to be a great shopping season in the next few days/weeks for high capacity 9mm between these two.

    I don't see SA not responding to this promotional sale in some format. Maybe it will take the form of additional mags, who knows. Buy some popcorn and have a sit down.

    Is the price drop by Sig or Cabelas?
