NOW AVAILABLE IN 9MM
For those that demand a no-nonsense approach to their defensive grade pistol, the new Operator® 1911 in 9mm stands ready to deliver. Crafted on the solid foundation of a forged frame, slide and barrel, the Operator 1911 builds on the century-plus of service behind the gun and adds the benefit of the ever-popular 9mm round. Tactical Rack rear/tritium front sights, G10 grips, ambi safety, two 9-round magazines with bumper pads, forward cocking serrations, and more combine to make the Operator 1911 from Springfield Armory a must-have tool for self-defense.
It has been said the 1911 is the most perfectly designed pistol ever made. If you might question that, just consider the fact that today in the year 2023 people still talk about the legendary trigger, ergonomics and feel of a 1911. By my quick count, that’s more than 110 years. With that in mind, it’s almost crazy how popular they still currently are. Looks like John Moses Browning knew what he was doing.
Featuring an appealing combination of class-leading concealability along with impressive capacity and performance, the Hellcat® Pro with Threaded Barrel features 15+1 rounds of 9mm in a smaller footprint than any other pistol in its class. The pistol’s 4.4″ barrel is hammer-forged for durability and features 1/2×28 threading at the muzzle, further enhancing the Hellcat Pro’s capabilities. Optics-ready and equipped with a versatile accessory rail, this exceptional everyday carry pistol delivers the perfect balance.
I have been a fan of the Hellcat series since its launch in 2019. And when the Hellcat Pro was released with its increased capacity as well as longer grip and barrel, I picked one up as soon as I could. And just when I thought the Hellcat line-up of pistols couldn’t get any better, Springfield Armory introduces another exciting variant of the Hellcat Pro.
Take Action – Urge Congress to Overturn ATF’s Brace Rule
THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 2023
The U.S. House is expected to hold a vote next week on H.J.Res.44, legislation that would overturn the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) pistol brace rule. H.J.Res.44, sponsored by Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) and Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), is a disapproval resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) that would invalidate ATF’s brace rule and block the agency from reissuing the same rule in the future. The U.S. Senate may consider companion legislation sponsored by Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) shortly thereafter. Please contact your federal legislators today and encourage them to vote “YES” on the disapproval resolution.
ATF’s unlawful rule on stabilizing braces would subject virtually all firearms with attached stabilizing braces to the registration requirements of the National Firearms Act (NFA) – the deadline to register these previously-acquired firearms was Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
Beginning in 2012, when President Biden was serving as then-President Barack Obama’s vice president, the ATF had recognized that stabilizing braces serve a legitimate function, and the inclusion of a stabilizing brace on a pistol or other firearm does not automatically subject that firearm to the provisions of the NFA.
But now, President Biden’s ATF has reversed over a decade of agency guidance and rulings that the firearms industry and law-abiding American gun owners have relied on when designing or acquiring firearms. Stabilizing braces were designed to enable gun owners to operate certain firearms with one hand with more stability. The ATF’s new rule says, essentially, that using a stabilizing brace with a pistol turns the firearm into a short-barreled rifle and must now be regulated by the NFA — and now the millions of Americans who own a pistol and a stabilizing brace, regardless of style, caliber, or type of brace, must either dispose of, alter, or register their firearms. If they don’t comply, they will become felons and face 10 years in prison and large fines.
Again, please take action today by contacting your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators, and encourage them to vote “YES” on the disapproval resolution to overturn ATF’s arbitrary rule.
