BEFORE I TOOK IT TO THE RANGE I BROKE IT DOWN WORKED IT OVER WITH A LITE AMOUNT OF FROG LUBE AND TO THE RANGE I WENT. 100% EFFECTIVE NO MISS FIRE, NO JAM, JUST GREAT PERFORMANCE. SO FOR YOU PEOPLE THAT ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIS LITTE GUN I SAY THIS AS A MARINE AND RETIRED POLICE OFFICER { A FIREARM WILL WORK AS WELL AS YOU FEED IT PROPERLY AND KEEP HIM CLEAN AND LUBED...............}Hellcat II 380 Blued 380 ACP 2.75" 6+1 Black Poly GET A (5***** STAR REVIEW )

This gun will not feed AT ALL. I first took it apart and cleaned and lubed it as I always do with any new firearm. As you have read from other reviews, I am now going to try to deal with the manufacturer. If it's cheaper to take it to a gunsmith than to ship it, I will go that route. The weapon is absolutely horrible. Do NOT waste your money on this one. I need a backup carry pistol and this one will not be the one that I depend upon. I work in law enforcement and cannot second guess my firearms. Bud's is great and I will continue to purchase from them. Their service is awesome, even during this nationwide gun "crisis".

I purchased 2 at the New Higher price last week. They shot very well as long as you clean and re-oil before you use them. Both seemed Bone Dry when taken out of the box. Nice little conceal weapon for the money. THATS the Last positive I have for the manufacturer. To say that I.O. customer service sucked would be a plus. Trying to get a hold of them is just as impossible as finding EXTRA MAGS. No one has them and their customer support via email can not even suggest when to get extra mags. The guns only ships with one. I would rate the Hellcat II .380 as a 7 but the company I.O. Inc as a - 7. They wont support their own product. No more money from Me!!

I cleaned the pistol out of the box to remove the cosmolime packing grease and oiled to lubricate to fire. The gun fired up to the last shell every time, which jammed every time. This tells me the magizine spring is weak from the factory. I stretched the spring and the jamming continued randomly.I tried to call the factory twice at which time the phone rang until it quit. I emailed with the suggested cause and fix and got an immediate response of " I am the only person here". The sales department and the customer service is the same man. I.E. This gun needs a stronger mag spring, I.O. needs a sales department, and a customer service department, each, and needs to hire people for these positions. IT IS WHAT IT IS.

Got it in to my FFL within a week, gun looked great......from the outside. Took it apart when I got home and noticed huge pitts in the chamber and rasp like pitting on the feed ramp, there was no way this thing would feed a round into the chamber. It was amazing because the pitting had been blued over, evidence of poor Q.C. during the barrel making process. The rest of the gun looked great! The next morning I e-mail I.O. Inc letting them know about the barrel and that I would like another one, within an hour I got a response letting me know that a new barrel is on the way. I received the new barrel a week later and the gun functions perfect (for a .380 pocket pistol). After shooting a Kel-Tec, Ruger LCP, and the Taurus TCP, the Hellcat was worth the $210 and performs as good as the others once it is in the condition it SHOULD have left the factory. If it wasn't for the Lifetime Warranty, I might not be as satisfied.

Picked up from FFL. Bought recommended ammo. Would not feed first round into chamber. After working with it for some time I came to realize it was the magazine that was not functioning properly. Tried to contact IO, but all the negative about their customer service is correct. No one answers the phone and cannot leave a message. I don't even know if they are in business anymore.I stretched the spring in the magazine to put more pressure on the shells when feeding and that solved all the problems. Have ordered a new magazine. Will see if it has the same problem.

The gun is 9.4 oz of crap! Barrel had deep pitted rust all over inside out to the texture of 60 grit sand paper.
Feed ramp would be better for a fingernail file, yes that rough! The frame pooches out after dissasembly from little pin retainer spring getting stuck between the plastic and aluminum part of the frame . Sent gun back to I O they said they don't go out the door like that.....LIE.If you buy one after reading this review you are a complete fool. This was suppose to be the series 2 which had the series 1 problems resolved...not. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!all this happened1-15-13 the junky ones are still out there!!!! If you have a choice between this 9.4 ounce turd or a pointy stick take the stick!

I picked up my new I.O. Hellcat last night at my FFL. I took the gun to the range today to shoot it for the first time. I used Winchester 380 ammo. The very first round that I tried to put in the chamber would not go up into the chamber from the magazine. It took about 15 minutes of working with it to be able to chamber the first round. About every 3rd round jammed from that point. This was unbelievably embarassing for a brand new gun. How this passed the manufacturers Quality Control I do not know. I was finally able to shoot the box of 50. I tried calling the manufacturer but they were closed. I will call them back Monday. Hopefully they will fix this gun. I am so far very disappointed in this pistol. Hopefully they will fix it and it will be ok.

To start I do not blame buds, I blame the manufacture. Buds shipped fast and would order from them again.
I received the gun new, tried to chamber a round and it would not chamber. Tried a few kinds of ammo still no go. Took it apart the entire surface of the barrel was terribly pitted. Then I noticed the feed ramp was unfinished and clearly cut short. I have not got a hold of the manufacture yet because of the holidays but it blows my mind this thing even left their factory in this condition. I do not see how they were able to even test fire it. Terrible. I read reviews all over the net and thought I would take the chance and hope I got a good one. In reality I got a $200 paperweight that is unable to function on any level.

Just p/u the Hellcat from the FFL dealer. Very nice looking gun. Have to buy shells it recommends Fiocchi so it is off to Cabelas to buy some .380 shells. It comes with a case soft style and a trigger guard. Nice little carry in blue jean pocket. Thanks Buds.
