Video Review of Hellcat .380 ACP

Back in August, 2010, Jeff Quinn of GunBlast.com tested the I.O., Inc. Hellcat .380 ACP on camera. Jeff put a video review up on YouTube of the original Hellcat. Since then, the Hellcat  has been completely re-engineered and upgraded, and it now comes with a pistol pouch and one 1 x 6 rd magazine. To see Jeff’s video, you should click here.

Written Review of Hellcat .380 ACP

In addition to his video review of the Hellcat, Jeff also posted a written review of the Hellcat, complete with photos, on GunBlast.com. Again, this was the original Hellcat,which has since been re-engineered and improved.  Here are a few, key excerpts from Jeff’s review:

“Upon examining the Hellcat 380, it is apparent that it is built of quality materials, and the pistol shows no machining marks, inside nor out.”

“The Hellcat has a pronounced curve to the back of the grip, and is very comfortable in my hand.”

“The I.O. Hellcat was easy to control, even when using the high performance ammunition from Cor-Bon and Buffalo Bore…. Every type of ammunition tested performed flawlessly.”

“I.O. provides the extra magazine in the box. All you need is ammo, and the Hellcat is ready to go to work.”

“The Hellcat 380 is a pistol well-suited to personal defense. It is small enough and light enough to always be within reach.”

We will keep you posted at the appropriate point of time with our new concealed carry models.

In the meantime we developed the Venom .45 ACP pistol.
