Earlier this year, Springfield Armory released threaded barrels for the Hellcat and XD-M pistols. Around the same time, the company released a version of the Hellcat Pro OSP with a threaded barrel. However, the threaded barrel itself was not available as an accessory drop-in barrel—until now.

Constructed of high-quality hammer-forged steel, the 4.4-inch barrel promises high durability. Likewise, a black Melonite finish delivers rust resistance and lubricity. Additionally, the barrels are manufactured in the same facility as the Hellcat Pro to ensure proper fitment and function.
The drop-in barrel features 1/2×28 threading and is designed to work with a standard configuration 3.7-inch Hellcat Pro 9mm. Once installed, the barrel allows users to run suppressors or other muzzle devices, such as a compensator. In addition, the barrel features a twist rate of 1:10 and weighs in at 3.3 ounces.
“With this new threaded barrel for the Hellcat Pro, shooters can further expand the capabilities of this extremely popular EDC pistol,” said Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “You can now easily run a suppressor or the muzzle device of your choice on your Hellcat Pro with this high-quality factory accessory.”
The MSRP for the 9mm Hellcat Pro 4.4-inch threaded barrel is $169.99, and it is available now at Springfield-Armory.com.
