    Beretta's New Groove?

    Looks like Beretta might be getting off of their laurels and responding to demand in the US.

    Two new models for 07...the PX4 45 (and 45 Special Duty):

    http://www.berettausa.com/product/sp...rmpistol45.cfm

    The PX4 SubCompact:

    http://www.berettausa.com/product/sp...subcompact.cfm

    For those that haven't tried the PX4 configuration, it is a very nice set up. The Compact will not use the rotating barrel system but still looks quite nice.

    So, in addition to the legendary performance of the 92/96 and the high quality, low cost outsourcing of the Cougar to Stoeger, Beretta's Polymers will now come as:

    9mm Full Size Rotating Barrell PX4
    40SW Full Size Rotating Barrell PX4
    45ACP Full Size Rotating Barrell PX4
    9mm SubCompact PX4
    40SW SubCompact PX4
    Full Size 9mm 90-Two
    Full Size 40SW 90-Two

    A little on the expensive side, but all high quality stuff.

    The Sub Compact with a 13 round capacity in 9mm looks real nice.

    On the PX4 Storm Sub-Compact, an MSRP of $575 would mean a price of about $500 I'd guess. Certainly worthy of consideration for a carry gun....

    Can't wait for the SC! Any excuse to get a new Beretta is a good one.

    Looks good, but I could never get over the slide mounted safety guns. Too ackward for me to manipulate. Otherwise , looks like a great modular grip pistol.

    You could just not use the safety...

    What he said.

    Beretta is making some really nice looking pieces now (just because its a tool doesn't mean it has to be ugly). I forgot who it was that did their design work on the 90-Two (Car designer Pinnanfarina if I remember correctly).

    You could just buy the "G" model, which is a decocker only, so no safety to worry about. That's the type action I have on my Beretta 92G-SD and all I need to do is pull the trigger and it makes a loud noise!

    I believe the designer was Giorgetto Giugiaro. He is world renowned in the automotive industry and has recently did some concept work on America's classic "Pony" car, the Ford Mustang. For those interested, here's a link... Giugiaro Ford Mustang concept

    I am interested to see what the dimensions will be for the PX4 Subcompact.

    Awesome!! I owned a 92FS for years but sold it off when I got my CHL last year and went with the XDsc. (I loved the Beretta, but chose not to keep it because the large frame was too big for my small hands. )

    I'll DEFINITELY check out the subcompact!
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

    The sub compact is pretty nifty. 13 round capacity is very nice. But, I hate to be the odd man out here, but I think it is kind of ugly.

    I like the 45 version of the PX4 too. Beretta makes some quality guns that much is for sure.

    You aren't alone PT-111....I'm a huge Beretta product fan and I think it makes a Glock look good.....but it feels good in my hand; I can see people with hands larger than mine having their pinkies out in the breeze (despite the hinged finger extension).

    The SC is definitely warthog like, for sure. Fat slide, short barrel. But it is starting to grow on me. I think I will get the 45 first though. Looks very nice for a full frame gun.

    Yeah, a buddy of mine just bought the PX4 .40 a couple of months ago. Shot pretty good, but I didn't like the rear sight because it's kind of wide. Anyway, I bet he may wish he would've waited and got the SC.
