The Beretta APX pistol is a firearm designed to serve and protect, and backed up by more than 400 years of gun-making experience. The APX features a reinforced, glass-filled polymer frame with user selectable grip modules, and feeds from 17-round magazines for its 9 mm Luger chambering. The slide, with aggressive, shark-tooth-like protrusions is black nitride-treated steel to provide a lifetime of service in conditions beyond the expectations of most defensive-pistol practitioners. A 4.25” barrel and three-dot, drift-adjustable battle sights come standard on the APX.
