Beretta APX

Anyone here have one? I just pulled the trigger on a compact since I fell into a deal ($329 shipped, NIB) and I can buy a centurion frame for about $50.

I take a decent amount of women (nurses) shooting, and heard that the trigger reach and grip size is good for people with smaller hands with the small backstrap installed.

New shooters usually love my VP9sk right up until they see the price, so I hope this doesn't totally suck.......

At the very least, it'll be my steel-cased cabin blaster.

This guy seems to be a fan. I might be too, if I wasn't into so many other pistols.

Yeah, he lost me with the dig on Canik though. They might be made in an evil country, but the TP9 series doesn't suck. I put a lot of rounds through one with no issues, and Battlefield Las Vegas says they hold up as high-volume rentals.

Anyhow, I'm excited to put some rounds through the APX this weekend and see how I like it.

250 rounds through it yesterday. 147g (100) and 115g(150) without any issues.

For the price, it's pretty nice. I like that it's between a G26 size (pinky hanging off) and G19 size. I can get a "real" grip on it when firing.

The trigger is nice and crisp, but it's a little heavier than most striker fired guns I own. Not a lot of travel, good reset. Really nice IMO for a carry/duty gun. It wasn't heavy like a NY in a Glock, but it wasn't something you could accidentally make go bang.

I'm not a fan of the sights, so I blacked out the rear dots.

It's recoil impulse seems low. A lot like my S&W 2.0 4" compact.

I can't wait to get it outside at the cabin and run through some steel cased ammo I've got sitting around.

I will say that the build quality seems a lot nicer than other "cheap" guns I've shot. The slide machining was clean without tool marks. The magazines come FLYING out when you hit the release.

Rapid fire at ten yards yielded more than acceptable accuracy for me, since I'm not exactly the world's best pistol shot.

I did seem to shoot it better left handed and one handed than I shoot my Glocks, it was on par in that regard with my VP9sk.

I could easily see this becoming my vehicle console gun, with larger APX magazines for reload.Image
