According to the latest reports Brazil ordered 159,000 Beretta APX Pistols to equip several units of their Police force
Beretta announced last weekend that it has been awarded a contract by the Brazilian Ministry of Justice for the procurement of up to more than 159,000 APX pistols. According to the company, after an open international competition and rigorous evaluation, the APX full size pistol has been selected to equip the units of the National Public Security Force and other law enforcement agencies of different Brazilian states.
The Beretta APX semiautomatic pistol, utilizing a removable, serialized chassis frame, can be easily modified with replaceable grip frame housings and is simple to disassemble and maintain. Ease of use was
the key driver in the development of the APX.
The APX’s extremely low profile, snag free, design makes it easy to carry and draw from the holster. To accommodate right or left-handed use, the APX’s magazine release button can be easily reversed. The light, durable grip frame housing employs modern thermoplastic technology through the use of fiberglass reinforced technopolymer.
