BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT
The new Beretta Px4 Storm pistol is not only the best example of the semiautomatic sidearm concept, but it is also a perfect manifestation of advanced technology and aesthetics.
The contrast between the black finish on key components and the stainless steel slide give a distinctive look to the Px4 storm Inox offering, in addition, a superior corrosion resistant coating.
The Px4 Storm lines have been conceived to compliment the power, ease of handling, performance and reliability of the pistol matched with an original and sought-after design.
Manufactured in many calibers, the new Px4 Storm adopts the locked-breech locking system with a rotating barrel, which has been revised and considerably improved by Beretta.The overall dimensions are significantly reduced, considering its major firepower. The light yet resistant pistol frame has been created applying the most modern thermoplastic technology, using reinforced fiberglass technopolymer.
Modular structure, ergonomics and interchangeability of parts place the Px4 Storm among the leading pistols for personal defense as well as law-enforcement use.
LIGHTWEIGHT, ERGONOMIC, MODULAR TECHNOPOLYMER FRAME
The extensive use of reinforced fiberglass technopolymer has allowed the development of a light and technically advanced firearm with a modern line that is extremely attractive and ergonomic.
The technopolymer is also completely resistant to corrosion and guarantees color consistency for years to come. The rounded surfaces of the pistol are truly snag-free and facilitate the insertion and the extraction of the pistol from the holster. Also the trigger guard is rounded to ensure, when firing with two hands, the correct position of the supporting hand. In front of the trigger guard, underneath the barrel, a Picatinny rail (MIL Std 1913) is located. Integral to the frame, it allows the mounting of laser devices, flash lighters or other types of accessories.
ERGONOMIC AND MODULAR GRIP
The correct grip angle allows for instinctive aiming of the firearm, automatically providing the line of sight. The rear upper part of the grip is curved and slightly recessed to snugly accommodate and protect the shooter's hand. Both the front and the rear part of the grip boast a comfortable scaled surface that, not only has great aesthetic impact, but considerably improves grip, even in moist conditions. In addition, the pistol may be adapted for different hand sizes, even small hands, thanks to a new patented system that allows the interchangeability of the back-straps by thickness and configuration: in addition to the standard back-strap (medium), a slim back-strap is also available for small hands as well as an oversized one for large hands.
AMBIDEXTROUS AND INTERCHANGEABLE MANUAL SAFETY LEVER.
The manual safety lever is positioned on both sides of the slide for equally as easy access by right or left-handed shooters.
The model G has a hammer de-cocking lever that can be replaced with another in a low profile configuration (Stealth) to further reduce the overall dimensions of the slide.
REVERSIBLE AND INTERCHANGEABLE MAGAZINE RELEASE BUTTON.
The newly designed magazine release button can be mounted on the right side of the firearm, for use by left-handed shooters. The knurled surface improves grip. The standard button can be easily replaced in different sizes (Large and Combat), suitable for professional use.
INTERCHANGEABLE SLIDE CATCH.
The slide catch (slide stop) may be replaced by another in a low profile configuration (slim type).
REMOVABLE AND INTERCHANGEABLE TRIGGER MECHANISM.
The trigger mechanism of the Px4 Storm pistol has been designed as a unit that may be extracted without the need for special tools.
The removal of the trigger group allows an easy access to the firing mechanism for cleaning and special maintenance purposes. Qualified personnel can remove the trigger mechanism when necessary, even in the field.
POWER UNDER CONTROL
The model Px4 Storm pistol uses the rotating barrel locking system that provides robustness and long-life, even when using powerful calibers. Further enhanced, the system boasts extremely robust locking lugs, located at 180° in order to ensure the best distribution of locking forces when firing. The reduced friction areas between the barrel and the slide, as well as the central block, guarantee a remarkable fluency of operation and great reliability, even under poor climate conditions. In addition, the barrel features an enlarged external muzzle diameter that ensures a precise and constant barrel-to-slide coupling, shot after shot, considerably enhancing the accuracy of the pistol.
Furthermore, the reduction of the external barrel diameter for its remaining length guarantees an improved rear and forward travel of the slide during the operating cycle.
DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE
NEWLY DESIGNED SLIDE.
The sides of the slide are smoothed and snag-proofed easing the insertion and removal of the pistol from its holster. The double transversal serrations (back and rear) on the slide allow for a firm grip even in moist conditions, facilitating slide operation and safety controls.
LOW BARREL AXIS POSITION.
Thanks to the direct barrel-slide locking system and to the design of the slide itself, the barrel axis comes as close as possible to the theoretical axis of the arm that handles the pistol with the clear benefit of minimizing the muzzle jump when shooting and improving the speed of aim in fast follow-up shots.
LUMINESCENT SUPERLUMINOVA® SIGHTS, INTERCHANGEABLE.
The high definition 3-dot sight system sports white indicators treated with Superluminova®, a special photosensitive material that makes them extremely visible even in darkness. A few minutes of exposure to light, even artificial light, are enough to ensure long lasting luminescence to the dots.The rear and front sights can be removed for replacement with other types.
SKELETONIZED HAMMER (F AND G MODELS ONLY).
The weight of the hammer has been significantly reduced and features a distinctive look and high percussion speed.
Three Operating Systems. Each version of the Beretta Px4 Storm pistol offers different features, designed to satisfy specific client needs.
Px4 Storm F: Double/single action. Ambidextrous manual safety on the slide with hammer de-cocking function, automatic firing pin block safety.
Px4 Storm G: Double/single action. Ambidextrous manual lever on the slide with hammer de-cocking function and return of the lever to the firing position, automatic firing pin block safety.
AUTOMATIC FIRING PIN BLOCK SAFETY
The Beretta Px4 Storm pistols have a blocking device that prevents forward movement of the firing pin, unless the trigger is completely pulled.
GREAT FIRE CAPACITY
HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINE
The Beretta Px4 Storm pistols have a quick release, high capacity staggered magazine, which allows rapid reloading and extended use of the firearm in special operating situations.
9mmx19 .40 S&W
17 rounds 14 rounds
Consult local authorities for magazine capacity restrictions that may apply in your locale.
For some markets and in compliance to local law restrictions, extended magazine bottoms can be applied to increase the magazine capacity: 1to 20 rounds for caliber 9mmx19; 2to17 rounds for caliber .40 S&W.
SIMPLE FIELD STRIPPING, CLEANING AND RE-ASSEMBLY
The disassembly device is designed to allow the pistol to be field stripped very quickly and easily and to avoid casual or involuntary disassembly. Disassembly is simple, but re-assembly is even easier and the slide locks automatically when it passes beyond the rear section of the frame.
