    Press Release: BERETTA PX4 STORM SUB-COMPACT PISTOL ON ITS WAY!



    BERETTA PX4 STORM SUB-COMPACT PISTOL ON ITS WAY!
    Deliveries on the new Beretta PX4 Storm Sub-Compact Pistol scheduled to begin June 1, 2008.

    NEWS RELEASE
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    ACCOKEEK, MD (May 20, 2008) Beretta USA is pleased to announce that deliveries for the introduction of the most advanced Sub-Compact sidearm of its kind -- the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact pistol will begin June 1, 2008. Built around Beretta's latest Px4 Storm modular technology, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact delivers concealed carry handling with large frame firepower.

    This new firearm is available in two calibers, 9mm with 13 round magazine capacity and .40 S&W with 10 round magazine capacity. The Px4 Storm Sub-Compact will eventually be available in all the traditional configurations (F, G, C, D actions) that have made its Px4 Storm full-size counterpart a preferred choice of Law Enforcement agencies and civilians across the United States. This new pistol uses a very reliable locked breech, providing a more compact and lighter weight system. Additionally, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact utilizes a stainless steel barrel which requires less maintenance and is corrosion resistant, making it perfectly suited for concealment close to active perspiring bodies.

    "We know that our customers have been very anxious to get this new Px4 Sub-Compact model into their inventory. Beretta is now very pleased to be able to fulfill that request," said Gabriele DePlano, Vice President of Product Development at Beretta USA.

    Hailed by some as the most accurate Sub-Compact pistol on the market, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact offers absolute reliability and consistent accuracy in a small package. Featuring a Picatinny rail to fit light and laser accessories, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact also adapts to different hand sizes easily with interchangeable backstraps that are included with each firearm. The magazine's patented 'Snap-Grip' allows for maximum concealability when the firearm is holstered, while providing a comfortable and secure grip when the pistol is being fired. An ambidextrous manual safety, ideally positioned on both sides of the slide for easy access by all shooters, and a low-profile slide catch complete this small yet powerful package. Additionally, a reversible magazine release button, in small or large size, can be mounted on either side for the convenience of the operator. The Px4 Storm Sub-Compact was designed by Beretta USA and will be manufactured in the United States at Beretta USA's Accokeek, MD facility.

    Beretta established in 1526, is the oldest industrial dynasty in the world tracing its roots through 16 generations of continuous family ownership. Firearms bearing the Beretta name have been sold for almost 500 years. Beretta USA Corp. was founded in 1977 and supplies the standard sidearm to the U.S. Armed Forces. Today Beretta manufactures, distributes and markets a complete line of firearms, accessories and apparel. Beretta also owns and operates six retail Beretta Gallery stores worldwide.

    MSR is $600. Considering the full-size PX4 is the same MSR, I would guess that you could get a pretty decent deal.

    Reminds me of a "tricked out, aerodynamic" XD compact.
    I'd try one..

    Wish it was thinner. 1.4" is chubby.

    If the slidelock is anything like the fullsize, that might account for about 3/16". I'll see if I can find one, I kind of dropped it off my list when it took so long to get released.

    More then 7 oz. more then a G26. That is pretty heavy. Nice gun though. Hope they do well with it.

    Yep, definitely on the "big" side of the sub-compact spectrum.

    Yes, it certainly is, but it's almost a full grip, 13 rounds in 9mm, and a soooooper sweet shooter. I had the opportunity to shoot it right about a year ago and it was really great. I found the barrel to be short enough that it will go IWB at 1 or 2 O'clock with no problems for me.

    Here's a self-made spy photo of it with a new Fobus holster (paddle) that is good for the SC and the full-size:

    Didn't mean that as a shot at the gun....I tend to be a little size sensitive because, as my 8 year old daughter says, I have dinky little girl fingers.....

    It was a bad day for me, back when they took away my 1911 and handed me that double-stack 9mm. KnowwhatImean?!

    I am looking forward to seeing one up close and personal though as soon as they hit the street.......

    I didn't think it was a shot... ;)

    Have you held a full-size PX4? If so, the grip is almost identical, just about " shorter and a teeny bit more "cozy".
