Beretta Px4 Storm

Built around a modular concept so that the pistol can become formidably adaptable to different needs and offer a range of modes of operations, the semiautomatic Beretta Px4 sidearm emphasizes power, ease of handling, performance and reliability without compromising on ergonomics and the renowned Berretta legacy of reliability and performance.

The Beretta Px4 Storm is built using light weight reinforced techno polymer construction which along with the trigger group capable of fully enclosing the sides, a picatinny rail and changeable back strap options for the grip forms the radical departure Beretta has taken from its previous designs.

The sidearm has been designed to offer ease of concealment. A snag free design with a rounder trigger guard and smooth sides coupled with lack of external levers offers snag free holster insertion and removal of the pistol. The front and side serrations that offer control and firm grip during both wet and dry conditions are designed so as not to compromise the ease of concealment and extraction during emergencies.

The Beretta Px4 Storm has been manufactured in three calibers and uses Beretta's innovative, and exclusive, locked breech with a rotating barrel system. The strongest so far, and one that significantly reduces recoil without resulting in the common FTE malfunctions. This makes the Px4 Storm the perfect firearm for law enforcement and personal defense.

The weapon allows ample room for customizability (interchangeable and removable parts). The Beretta Px4 Storm incorporates an integral picatinny MILSTD 1913 rail under the muzzle for rapid attachment of tactical lights and lasers.

Concealment and ease of use is coupled with safety features that protect the gun and the user from mishap and misfire. A visible firing pin block is located rearward on the sidearm, far from fouling and debris of the breech face. This, firstly, allows the user to ascertain its proper operation at any time, and secondly, prevents the firing pin from striking the primer in case of heavy jolts even when the gun were to fall with the muzzle facing the ground. Beretta's age old external hammer design offers greater energy to the firing pin while eliminating the possibility of misfires due to light primer strikes. And further provides a visual indication of the cocked/uncocked status of the pistol.

The 3 dot sight system offers ease and quick acquisition of the target. The sight system is luminescent so that it can be effectively used in dark or low light situations. The special luminescent coating reacts even to short exposure to any kind of light, becomes energized and its luminescence lasts up to 30 minutes. Furthermore the sight is designed to provide a front projection which offers greater reflex action advantage during emergency as the user can now retract the slide single handedly by applying leverage on the sight.

The Beretta Px4 Storm offers increased customizability as the pistol can be configured with checkered back straps (small, medium and large) to individually fit the hand of the shooter offering greater grip. The ambidextrous reversible magazine release allows for customization of individual's hand size, all combine to give a great user experience.
