Italian gun maker Beretta announced the release of a full-size striker fired pistol chambered in 9mm to the U.S. this week with the APX — the new face of the company’s tactical identity.


Off the shelf, the APX comes with two 17-round magazines. Beretta said it plans to have pistols shipped and ready to go in April with a retail price at $525. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


Engineered over a four-year period leading up to the Military Handgun System competition, the 9mm handgun was designed as a duty gun. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


The APX is Beretta’s full-size striker-fire pistol. After hundreds of rounds down range, the handgun performed flawlessly. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


The APX offers many competitive features like a passive trigger safety, Picatinny rail, three-dot sights, a reversible mag release, and interchangeable backstraps. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


What stands out most on the APX are the fully flat trigger and the slide serrations, which are spaced finger-width apart and run the entirety of the slide. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


The simple design affords for easy manipulate, even under little to no visibility; a smooth trigger that’s effortless to control; and a full-sized frame that allows for positive control and softer felt recoil.  (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


The APX allows for easy takedown and includes just three major components. However, there are 12 serialized parts. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/


The official release date for the APX is April 15, during the NRA annual convention. (Photo: Daniel Terrill/
