In 2019, the long existing collaboration between Springfield Armory and HS Produkt (a popular Croatian gun manufacturer), gave birth to a new star in the CCW sky - the Springfield Armory Hellcat. The pistol quickly found its fan base and made its way into the EDC of many of those who had previously been using some other popular carry guns such as the Glock 43 or SIG P365. And if it’s not a part of your EDC yet, read our Hellcat review and you’ll quickly realise why it should. Even though you may run into some frequent Springfield Hellcat problems, it's still a pistol that shouldn't be missing in any gun aficionado's arsenal.
One of the reasons for this is the incredible flush capacity that the Hellcat offers. I mean, 11+1 rounds crammed into such a tiny package has to account for something, right? However, the pistol has got much more to offer. The Springfield Hellcat is also extremely accurate straight out of the box. But if you often find yourself in low-light environments, it’s a good idea to equip your Hellcat with a tactical light or laser.
And that’s exactly why I’m here today. To share with you a list of the best Springfield Hellcat lights and lasers. All of the ones on our list are set to significantly improve your aim and target acquisition, no matter the weather.
Lighting up your Hellcat - the best Hellcat lights & Lasers
Although the Springfield Hellcat is a great micro-compact pistol (and potentially even the best), mounting a tactical flashlight or laser on its rail can make it even better. But deciding which light or laser to get is a tough one. And that's exactly why I'm here today, to help you pick the best one. So, without further ado, let's have a look at 5 best Hellcat lights and lasers, all of which are most definitely worth your consideration.
The first tactical flashlight for Springfield Hellcat was designed by Olight, a popular weapon light manufacturer from China, that also has operations in Georgia. Their Olight Baldr Mini ranks among the most popular rail-mounted lights and it's now available even for such tiny guns as the Hellcat is.
The output of the Baldr Mini's green beam is <5mW, and its class is 3R. Taking into account how small this light is, its power output of 600 Lumens is simply amazing. Its white light also comes with a throw of 130 meters. So, if you get this Olight, your Hellcat's accuracy will simply be alright.
- Power output of 600 Lumens
- Fully USB rechargeable
- Comes with a batery life indicator

#2 on our list was designed by no other than Streamlight - undeniable the world's most popular producer of tactical flashlights. Their TLR-6 has been around for a long time, but a variation fitting such a tiny gun as the Hellcat is was only introduced a while back.
The Streamlight TLR-6 is a great combination of a tactical light and laser, as it comes with an integrated class 3 red laser, designed to make target acquisition much easier. So, if you want your Hellcat to shine bright, simply get this Streamlight.
