GENESEO, ILL. (12/21/23) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of the Hellion™ 20” rifle California-compliant model, the newest addition to the Hellion line of 5.56mm bullpups.

The Hellion 20” Rifle California-compliant model packs industry-leading features into a handy bullpup available for sale in America’s more restrictive locales. This is accomplished through the inclusion of a Strike Industries California-compliant grip, SA Muzzle Brake, non-adjustable stock and a 10-round Magpul® PMAG®.

With an innovative bullpup configuration where the action is located behind the trigger, this Hellion features a 20” barrel for increased downrange performance without sacrificing overall length. It sports ambidextrous controls that pair with a reversible case ejection system, allowing it to be easily fired from either shoulder.

“This new Hellion 20” Rifle gives residents of the state of California an opportunity to own their own variant of the popular Hellion 5.56mm bullpup,” said Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Featuring rugged and reliable performance, this new Hellion 20” Rifle makes for a great addition to any California firearms enthusiast’s collection.”

Priced at an MSRP of $2,031, the new California-compliant Hellion 20” Rifle brings bullpup performance to a whole new segment of shooters.
