At the end of in 2015, American Rifleman editors as well as contributors got together and talked about the guns, ammunition, optics and gear that emerged from the marketplace throughout 2019. From these discussions emerge the Golden Bullseye honor winners for 2020, as well as such has it gone since the first Golden Bullseye honors decades back. For more details on the standards thought about in picking a Golden-Bullseye honor champion, check our listed here. The champion of our 2020 Golden Bullseye Honor for Hand Gun of the Year goes to the Springfield Armory Hellcat.


The group of the "micro-compact hand gun" came into being with the launch of the SIG Sauer P365, which utilized an unique stagger-stack magazine to boost on-board ammo ability. The outcome was a hand gun that matched the slim account of lots of single-stack pistols while including 4 or 5 extra rounds in a flush-fit publication. Springfield Armory took this step further in 2019 with the launch of its Hellcat, which increased capacity a lot more while keeping the very same slim shape as many of today's polymer-frame, single-stack guns. Here's what Executive Editor Joe Kurtenbach needed to say concerning the New Springfield Pistol in his Hellcat testimonial:


The typical Hellcat is slated to put on an MSRP of $569, so the weapon is most likely to be priced competitively at retail. Better still, the OSP version is just $30 even more-- that's the choice I 'd select.


This review has been fascinating for me due to the fact that We do not generally obtain really connected to evaluation weapons. Springfield Laser see a great deal of them in the course of a year. However this time around, the Hellcat made a mark. The only various other weapons we have really felt so strongly regarding have actually been high-end, hand-fit M1911s-- and after that it was for really various reasons. The Hellcat isn't a smooth-cycling wonder-gun that feels like an extension of my arm, possesses a feather-like trigger and also can bulls eye precision. Neither is it a gun we imagine keeping in the secure till I pass it on my children.






Simply specified, Springfield Laser want the Hellcat since the gun is a pet, and also it's reproduced to fight. It's outfitted with the latest innovation, and also its layout meets my requirements as an armed person. It's small and light sufficient to carry as well as keep on me-- always-- and also its powerful enough to conserve my life if necessary.- Just recently presented as well as offered to customers prior to the choice of the Golden Bullseye Honors.- Used/tested by an employee or regular factor to the publication and/or connected media.- Reliable in the field, meeting or going beyond the evaluator's assumptions.- Cutting-edge in layout and also function.- Easily regarded as a worth to the purchaser and also.- Styled in a fashion proper the shooting as well as hunting sector as well as, probably more notably, its fanatics.
