FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Beretta APX is a polymer frame, striker-fired, semi-automatic pistol designed and produced by Beretta since 2016.
It was designed largely for the U.S. Armed Forces’ XM17 Modular Handgun System competition, which was eventually won by versions of the SIG Sauer P320.
The APX is Beretta’s first striker-fired duty-sized handgun.
The name APX refers to “Advanced Pistol X” (the “X” referring to a caliber of choice), as the firearm is fully modular and can change calibers and frame sizes somewhat easily.
It is available chambered in 9mmP, 9×21 IMI and .40 S&W.
Unlike other Beretta pistols, the APX uses the traditional Browning tilting-barrel short recoil design.
The polymer frame incorporates replaceable grip straps to adjust the shape and size. Replacement frames are also available in different colours including flat dark earth (FDE), tan, wolf grey and olive drab, and including or excluding finger grooves.
The slide and barrel are coated in a black Nitride finish, except for the newer FDE models that have a Cerakote FDE slide and black Nitride barrel.
The APX includes an automatic striker block safety as well as a striker deactivation button that can be pushed to deactivate the striker (e.g. before disassembly).
The standard sized model APX was made available to the civilian market in 2017.
In 2018, three new variants were released; the APX Centurion with a slightly smaller frame, slide and barrel, the APX Compact with a subcompact-sized frame, slide and barrel, and the APX Combat with a threaded barrel and a mounting plate for optics on the slide.
In later years Beretta also introduced the APX Carry, a single stack magazine variant intended for the concealed carry market, and also the APX Target which is a competition variant with a longer slide and barrel for greater accuracy, a mounting plate for optics.
