I got a response...

"The information I was given is that Olight, Streamlight and Viridian make lights that will fit on the Hellcat accessory rail. Unfortunately, we don’t have the specific model information on these lights"

I'm sure we can guess which ones so there you go as far as what SA knows about which lights fit.

I too called CS for info on my MOD-2 compact about a light and I got the typical lawyer cya statement that I should check with various manufacturers on what will work.

I guess it depends on your definition of "fit'

You will have to shave down the locking bar, consider shaving down the activate buttons, and accept that it will hang out in front of the barrel by about a 1/4". If you're good with each of those caveats, then yes it will 'fit'

I went and played with a hellcat last night. The problem is the hellcat.

The 1913 rails are not correct - the problem is the slot in it is not cut wide enough or deep enough. I compared it against my XDs, and an HK. The Hellcat I was handling wouldn't even fit the 1913 lug on my Olight. It had to use the Glock lug because of the width being too narrow. This alone will prevent almost every Pic accessory from working correctly.

The easy fix without needing to mod anything is to remove the locking lug and use just the allen screws on the light instead.

There are also videos on Youtube of people fitting the O-Light PL Mini 2 on a Hellcat without any modification or 'nonstandard' installation required.

The Viridian C5LR will also fit, but being a Laser/Light combo, it's BIG, and the light is only 100 lumens constant and 140 lumens strobe. The PL Mini 2 is 600 lumens (The PL Mini is 400)

I have a PL Mini 2 in and yeah it doesn't snap onto the rail with the GL locking lug. I'll try the screw only method. Wonder why they wouldn't make the valley deeper on the hellcat if it's advertised as "standard accessory rail"

Hi Everyone - New owner of Hellcat, and this thread came up often in my search for a light and/or laser. While I am sure there are many out there I did not see I can confirm that the C5 and TLR-6 come up frequently. I actually went out and purchased an ADE light/Laser combo I found on amazon.

I ended up keeping the TLR-6, as it was a pretty darn close fit, and good enough for the price (I still need to find a holster).

The ADE light and green laser were really superior, but the shape was too annoying. It was not wide, but deep enough to go about 1/4 into the trigger guard. My fingers are not huge, but it was pretty annoying. Also, it Is about 1/2 an inch taller than the TLR which Was annoying. Really wanted it to work given I wanted to Run the green laser, and brighter light, but the TLR profile is much better.

I hope this helps others that come across this thread.

69291 is what you want to get. This guy did an awesome post and fabricated a bit to get some of the gap around the trigger guard filled in.


TLR 6

His pics are spot on, and exactly mine as well (without the good modification). I will say if you intentionally wiggle the area of the trigger gaurd where the TLR meets it does move slightly. It could impact zero on the laser dot, but I do not plan on using the laser.

OH and if you wanted a holster he found a company that will make it for the TLR.
