When it comes to form and function, Beretta has a really good track record. The Beretta 92FS is probably one of the most ubiquitous handguns around the world and the rest of the Beretta catalog has seen high sales all over the globe. Beretta decided to take some of the best parts from across their product line and apply them to create a gun that was perfect for defensive use.
Taking the rotating barrel system from the Beretta 8000 models, the trigger and safety from the 92 series, and sprinkled in some features to increase the firearm’s utility. Using a polymer frame with steel inserts, the pistol is light to carry but sturdy enough to stand up to the rigors of daily carry. Weighing in around 37 ounces fully loaded, it doesn’t weigh you down or come uncomfortable over time. The smooth contours not only make the gun looks sharp and modern, but they allow for a snag-less pull from the holster. With a rounded trigger guard, beveled edges, and unique angles, the gun is designed to be quickly drawn from the holster without the worry of snags or hold-ups.
One of the best features is the rotating barrel. When fired, the barrel rotates to absorb most of the recoil. Because of this system, shooting the light framed Px4 feels like shooting the same caliber in a much heavier pistol. Reducing the felt recoil will allow you to have quicker follow-up shots or a pleasant time at the range. To make it even better, Beretta added a Picatinny rail so you can add a light or laser. The Px4 is a handgun designed with the concealed carrier in mind, while maintaining the classic Beretta look updated for the 21st Century.
