BERETTA’S NEW APX 9MM COMPACT IS A TOUGH CARRY SIZED BRUTE
The APX features a minimum of controls and a crisp trigger.
Grip inserts of various sizes are an advantage of modern polymer-frame handguns.

In the firearms world, when you come up with a good product, the next step is usually to introduce a smaller, handier version of it.

That’s just what Beretta did. As a follow-up to the long-awaited APX service pistol that became available in 2017, the company has now introduced a compact model. So, what exactly is the APX?

THE DETAILS

The APX is a striker-fired, polymer- frame handgun with a modular design. Beretta isn’t the first to produce this type of handgun by a few decades, and now the company has jumped into a very challenging and competitive market.

The polymer frame service pistol market is a lucrative one. Beretta went all out to produce a functional, reliable and effective handgun. Beretta enjoys brand loyalty and this is an important consideration, but any pistol must survive on its own merits. The APX is designed to garner police and military orders worldwide. Although it missed getting the big U.S.military contract, I suspect other agencies will adopt it. It is inevitable, however, that a service pistol be accompanied by a compact handgun suited more for civilian concealed carry use.
