"On paper the APX is a very modern pistol and when this hits the market, assuming the price is competitive — something Beretta is quite good about — it will be a strong seller. That goes double if the gun is adopted as the new MHS, and it’s obvious Beretta is hungry for the extremely prestigious contract." That they are possibly losing.
The gun requires special tool to break it down! The article says it will be available with a safety if requested. I like the look but I still prefer a hammer fired pistol. My 709 is the only striker fired gun I have.
