Incorrect. At 1:12 in their release video SAI claims they have a patented 11 round magazine. SIG Sauer has also patented or patent pending magazine shapes. For example:
I do agree SIG is good at marketing.

Competition with these micro 9mm's is a good thing, it forces everyone to make a better product.
I noticed a marked uptick in Kel-Tec's fit and finish after Ruger and a dozen other makers got into the micro .380 market like 9-10 years ago.

I wonder what little design flaws will crop up over time. The engineering / tolerance envelope for these itty bitty high capacity guns is really tight.
More bang sticks is better for the breed as a whole though.

Guess I now have another pistol to add to my samples for concealed carry classes. Briefcase is getting full & heavy. ☺️

Looks like SAI listened, no stupid gripzone branding, no yoga pants, looks to be all business.
Time and use will tell the tale.
There marketing department needs better people. Tight yoga pants with the Saint, now the Hellcat, waiting for the Sinners SBR. Naming it after an Navy fighter prop is interesting. If my memory serves me correctly Hellcats of the Navy was a Ronald Reagan film.This message has been edited. Last edited by: ZSMICHAEL,
I thought they named it after a Fiat....

The Hellcat was a prop driven fighter plane flown by the USN in WWII...I mean, it was if we’re keeping score.
Dodge’s only contributions were to make it faster and to give it 4 wheels.

lol at anyone who thinks Sig has an actionable suit against anyone for their 365 mag. I said it when the gun was released and this "patent" bullshit was thrown around. It's a freaking double stack mag folks. this is marketing crap. I thought S&W would be the first to copy to the 365, but it Springfield was the one. S&W version in 3...2...1.........and no lawsuits will be filed. I'll take any bets anyone wants to place.
I'm confused...wait, maybe I'm not.
There is also the rumored P365 competitor from FN. I agree there will be no lawsuits!
I do kinda like the idea of a tiny FN 509 though!

You are right, the P365 has been perfect in every aspect, never failed, ever.
That's why "currently". Most everyone is well aware of the initial issues with the P365, although some tried to pretend they were nothing.
I do on paper like their idea behind the grip texture, but we'll have to see what it feels like in reality.
No plans to get rid of my P365MS, though.

I've never actually seen the patent, and I looked a while back. I'm not exactly sure what they're trying to patent. But if it gets approved, and someone copies the design, SIG can sue for infringement. But, of course, the devil is in the details. If anyone finds the actual patent application, please post a link.
As far as this gun. Let it be out on the market for six months, and let's see what the long term reviews look like.
Someday, SA Inc may actually come up with an original idea, and not just copying what's successful, or just putting their name on firearms designed elsewhere.
Wait, WTF am I saying?? That's never gonna happen.
|Fighting the good fight|
Color me surprised.
I'll admit, I gave SA Inc. a lot of crap in various threads about the hype leading up to this, as a result of their hypetastic roll-out of their run-of-the-mill Saint AR.
Granted, it's a direct response/copy of the P365, but so far the P365 basically stands alone in its class. This is the first bit of real competition for the P365.
Besides, I'm sure there will be people that, after comparing the two, will automatically go with the Hellcat over the P365 because it "goes to 11, and 11 is 1 more than 10".
Now, I'm not going to run out and buy one, or replace my P365 with one of these. But this actually looks like a good gun that will sell very well (as long as it's reliable).
SA Inc. is in a good position to sell quite a few of these before the other manufacturer catch up and the double stack micro-compact pocket gun market gets flooded.
To *me* the main selling point of concealability of all these subcompact length grip frame pistols, is also their biggest weakness. Using their flush fit mags, they are slower to get a good quick grip on and draw with, are slower to do mag changes with, and are generally harder to control and shoot accurately fast, than say more of a compact sized grip length like a 365XL or Glock 43X, where you can get a full grip on them when using their standard flush fit mags. IMHO, if you are using a good belt and holster combination with lets say the above two pistols,you loose very little in the way of concealability to these smaller subcompact pistols, and with none of their drawbacks. IMHO, every size of pistol is a compromise somewhere.
