Beretta Launches New APX A1 Full Size Pistol
Accokeek, MD – Beretta is pleased to announce the launch of a new family of semi-automatic pistols – the APX A1 – the next evolution of striker-fired pistols made by the longest-standing name in firearms. Built on the heritage of the original APX platform that passed MHS testing for the US Army, the APX A1 delivers a crisp, class-dominating trigger, improved ergonomics, aggressive slide serrations, and MRDS Optics cuts right out of the box.
The ultimate convergence of form, function, and fortitude, the Beretta APX A1 takes the proven ergonomics, reliability, and accuracy of the APX family and delivers a superior firing solution – from the casual shooter to the most demanding professionals in the world.
“Building on Beretta’s knowledge and history of performance, the APX A1 offers the most competitive feature set available today on the market,” Nicola Lorenzi, Pistol Product Manager, said. “The APX A1 takes the proven ergonomics and reliability of the APX family to the next level with integrated features derived from feedback from military, law enforcement, and tactical shooters. It aims for the highest levels in performance, safety, and quality to operate for any shooter in the field.”
A crisp, class-dominating trigger features a light pull, clean break, and a short reset for fast target engagements. The red dot optic-ready slide lets you easily install a wide range of optics to your training or home defense setup for quicker target acquisition when it matters most.
Aggressive slide serrations let you rack, and press check even in extreme conditions. The Aquatech Shield coating improves corrosion and chemical resistance, while the black serrated rear sight and tritium front sight gives the perfect sight picture in any lighting conditions.
Ambidextrous controls are configurable for right or left-handed shooters, with both the slide and mag release able to be easily set up depending on the shooter’s needs. The 360-degree extended textures are right where your hands use the greatest amount of pressure, and enhanced texturing gives you a more consistent grip every time.
The new APX A1 features improved ergonomics including a higher undercut trigger guard, an enhanced beaver tail, and modular grip panels for the length of pull and palm-swell customization. All these features help maximize surface contact and achieve a higher-tang grip for a more natural shooting position and better recoil control.
The modular frame comes with three interchangeable backstraps so it can contour to the hands of any shooter in minutes for a better feel, and greater recoil management.
The Beretta APX A1 Full Size is now available for purchase in 10, 15, and 17-round magazine capacities and retails for an MSRP of $529.
