I put very little credibility in any YT reviews or tests because almost all of the channels are getting paid in money/product for the reviews, but they're also not clear about that being the case, despite legal requirements.It always amazes me that there are a ton of favorable reviews out there for a product, this one in particular had at least one ten thousand round test, but all of that is forgotten and tossed aside at the first issue posted. Talk about reactionary.
At least two smaller YT channels freely said in YT comments sections that Springfield gifted the Hellcat package to a bunch of channels- it included the pistol, mini vault, holster, mags, and some included red dot optics. Smart marketing on the part of S.A., but not cool that most of those channels won't even clearly tell viewers the 'marketing kits' weren't loaners but were in fact free gifts of pistol and accessories.
As for the claimed 10,000 round test- you and most others fail to mention the testers say it included at least four stoppages. To put that in context- the Army's testing of the new m17 pistols ran over 8,000 rounds before the first stoppage.
A question: how can you ignore all of the facts I mentioned in my other comment about S.A.'s anti Second Amendment actions? It's amazing that your reaction is to defend the brand over the 2A.
