Beretta added to its series of APX pistols, delivering two new models to Beretta fangirls and guy — the APX Centurion and APX Compact.
Building on the original striker-fired APX series, the new pistols offer concealed carry and mid-size options. The guns deliver aggressive slide serrations in addition to a trigger that Beretta said breaks at a clean 6 pounds. The trigger also boasts a clear tactile and audible short reset.

The guns offer a low bore axis with ambidextrous slide catch and a reversible magazine release. The APX advantageous design allows users to remove the serialized chassis and replace it with a grip frame housing from Beretta’s lineup of Flat Dark Earth, Wolf Grey, Black and Olive Drab.
The APX Centurion grants users 15+1 capacity with 9mm and 13+1 with .40 S&W. The Centurion features a flush fit magazine that can accept full size APX mags. The APX Compact ships with a 13+1 capacity for 9mm and a 10+1 capacity for .40 S&W. The pistol can accept both full sized and Centurion mags.
The APX Compact is available in stores now while the Centurion is set to appear in stores in June. MSRP for both models is $575.
