There was a lot of talk about the Beretta APX striker-fired pistol at SHOT Show this year, especially when the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS) winner was announced and revealed Beretta was no longer going to be the Army’s handgun supplier. The Beretta APX is their first foray into the full-sized striker-fired pistol market, and will be available in the United States starting April 15, 2017.
Some may think it is too late for Beretta, but I disagree. Though Glock, HK, and Smith & Wesson have a strong influence in the striker-fired market, the recent additions of the Ruger American Pistol, Sig Sauer P320 (a variant winning the MHS contract), and the Remington R9, clearly show there is still room for competition and innovation in one of the most popular handgun styles today. Once you’ve read more I think you’ll agree.
