ArachniGrip adds Slide Spider for Hellcat OSP

ArachniGrip, creator and manufacturer of the Slide Spider adhesive slide grip, is offering a slide grip for the Springfield Armory Hellcat OSP.

The Hellcat is available in two versions: the standard slide model and the Optical Sight Pistol. The OSP version comes with a removable steel plate that fills the pre-cut slide, giving the operator the option of using the gun with or without a red-dot sight.

ArachniGrip is now offering a slide grip for the Hellcat with the Optical Sight Pistol slide. When an optic is mounted on a semi-auto pistol, shooters may be tempted to use the optic as a gripping point when racking the slide. This is not a proper or safe method, and shooters should be careful to avoid making this mistake.

ArachniGrip addresses this problem by allowing additional grip surfaces to be applied with the optic mounted. There is also a grip panel that can be applied to the mounting plate if the open sights are desired.
