About Beretta APX
Beretta is probably the largest company producing firearms in the world. It's output is approximately 1,500 produced weapons a day. One of the biggest achievements of Beretta is definitely the fact that the American Armed Forces and State Police Forces started using Beretta 92 series in 1985. The company added to its classical sporting guns production a completely new line of hunting apparel and accessories, clay target shooting and outdoor sports items in the early 1990s.
The Beretta APX is a recoil operated semi-automatic pistol made by the Fabbrica D' Armi Pietro Beretta SpA. It is a striker-fired polymer frame pistol that belongs to the category of the full-sized pistols and comes with a striker single-action (SA) trigger. The Beretta APX is available in two versions. The first one uses the 9mm Luger cartridge and its magazine can hold 17 rounds of ammo. The second version comes with the 15-round magazine and relies on the use of the .40 S&W cartridge. Dimension wise, both models are the same, the only difference is in the weight, as the version for .40 S&W is a little bit more heavy. Designed specifically for military and law enforcement operators, the Beretta APX has been put through extensive testing and evaluation at the professional end user level. The result is a pistol that delivers superior performance in durability and reliability, ergonomics, trigger, and modularity. So there is no surprise that this pistol became very popular and beloved by many shooters, especially for range or competition shooting purposes.
