(Accokeek, MD) April 17, 2017 Beretta began shipping the purpose-built, duty-grade APX pistol last week, after recently announcing its launch in the U.S. market.
With the APX, Beretta delivers to the civilian market a pistol platform with superior performance in durability, reliability, accuracy and ergonomics.
More than one million rounds of testing have gone into proving the accuracy and durability of the APX ensuring the highest level of reliability.
Through anthropometric studies and user feedback, the ergonomics have been optimized for both functionality and comfort. Its high grip position offers better controllability and easier sight tracking. An oversized magazine baseplate facilitates fast loading and extraction, and aggressive, full-length slide serrations make slide manipulation easier, especially under adverse conditions.
The trigger and controls on the APX, influenced by innovation in competitive shooting, also reflect a commitment to ergonomics and functionality.
The flat-faced design of the trigger promotes a straight rearward trigger press with minimal interruption of sight picture. Ambidextrous, reversible controls are easy to operate and are designed to accommodate from the 5th to 95th percentile of hand sizes.
As a modular pistol, the internal chassis of the APX is serialized allowing grip frame housings to be customized or exchanged without affecting the serialized part. With the APX, Beretta has been able to reduce the bulk of the chassis making it easier to shoot than most other modular pistols.
Nearly five years of incorporating both extensive laboratory research and feedback from hundreds of professional end-users ensures the APX is built to accomplish the mission, be it duty related or personal protection.
Beretta has manufactured semi-automatic pistols since 1915 and is now one of the very few manufacturers to offer full size polymer and metallic framed handguns in both hammer and striker fired operating systems.
The APX is currently available in 9mm, and comes with 2 10+1 magazines.
Beretta, established in 1526, is the oldest industrial dynasty in the world tracing its roots through 15 generations of continuous family ownership. Firearms bearing the Beretta name have been sold for almost 500 years. Beretta USA Corp. was founded in 1977 and supplies the standard sidearm to the U.S. Armed Forces. Today, Beretta manufactures, distributes and markets a complete line of firearms, accessories and apparel. Beretta also owns and operates six retail Beretta Gallery stores worldwide.
