The collaboration between Springfield Armory and Croatian firearms manufacturer HS Produkt has been a successful one, bringing the XD-series and Hellcat handguns to the American market. But no matter how Springfield innovates in its handgun line-up there’s always been one HS Produkt firearm that has remained elusive to American gun owners — the VHS bullpup rifle. All of that is about to change as Springfield Armory announces the introduction of the Hellion, a semi-automatic, civilian version of the VHS.

Developed to supplant Croatia’s Soviet-era equipment when the country became independent, the VHS was introduced in 2007, updated in 2013 and has seen combat service in Iraq and Afghanistan. While Springfield fans have been clamoring for the company to use its connections to bring the rifle stateside, the process of domesticating the VHS for the American market was several years in the making.

“Springfield Armory’s goal is to provide shooters with the best products they can, from classics like the 1911 and the M1A to cutting-edge offerings like the Hellcat and XD-M Elite families,” said Mike Humphries, Springfield Armory’s Media Relations Manager. “The Hellion represents the latest effort on this front, providing American shooters with a unique opportunity to own a civilian-legal, semi-automatic sibling of a proven Croatian military firearm.”
