    Yes, "Type G" Berettas are decocker-only. They do make a PX4 Type G, but as noted earlier, it's very easy to convert to a Type G by removing the detent.

    If my wife ever decides to starting carrying her PX4 Compact, I may move it to a type G, but she's overly paranoid about anything firearm.

    You can install the stealth levers like I did or you can simply take the original levers out, remove the ball, and reinstall them.

    And no, it's not two inches thick.

    Good question I would think so but not sure. Its been a long time since we set it up. Today was the first time it was out in a long time also. We went to the range and wife ran a couple mags through it but focused mainly on her Xds.

    Its a thick one but not 2 inches. Honestly the overall size on its pretty close to the size of my 229.

    One modification is available. You can switch the standard safety levers for a "92" style safety lever.
    Beretta PX4 Assembled Safety Lever Type "92FS R.P."

    I didn't realize they were interchangeable.
    I like the .40 .

    I don't think the Storms have quite the eye appeal of some of the pistols in the Beretta 92 family of pistols. Nevertheless, as dead nuts reliable, nice shooting pistols for carry or home defense I think they are a bit underrated by many.

    I agree whole heartedly on both accounts. It is a reliable gun but not as pretty as the 92 series or the Cheetahs. To me the Cheetahs are absolutely beautiful.

    I don't know if they are necessarily "interchangeable" but there is a "version" of that safety style for the PX4.

    I'm getting old, well I'm old, when we were talking about the PX4, what I had in my mind was another model, thinking it was called Cougar ? alloy frame, screw in grips and the barrel rolled to the side to help ejecting a round, still stand by the PX4 is ugly but very accurate though.
