A variant of the APX striker-fired pistol, the APX Combat features a factory standard 1/2x28TPI threaded barrel, and accepts 4 different RDO mounting styles.
The threaded barrel comes with a standard thread protector. The slide has been machined to receive a variety of red dot optics, and includes a cover plate to provide a smooth surface on the slide when no red dot optic is in use. The four interface adapters included with the pistol are RMR, Cmore, Deltapoint Pro, and Burris Fast Fire.
Striker fired pistols are becoming an important segment worldwide for the Military and Law Enforcement sector. The Beretta APX, utilizing a removable serialized chassis frame, can be easily modified with a replaceable grip frame housing and is simply to disassemble and maintain. The lightweight frame housing is made of fiberglass-reinforced technopolymer. The APX's extremely low profile and snag free design makes it easy to carry and draw from a holster.
Ease of use was the key driver in the development of the APX. A slide catch lever is located on both sides of the frame. The operating/locking system is based on a tilt-barrel, locked breech. Beretta APX pistols have a unique feature that allows the user to deactivate the internal striker mechanism prior to disassembly. This means the pistol can be field stripped without pulling the trigger. The trigger safety stops the trigger from traveling rearward through inertia, in the event the pistol is dropped. When the trigger is intentionally pulled, the trigger safety is instantly deactivated.
Frame safety, magazine safety, and a loaded chamber indicator are available on request. To accommodate right or left-handed use, the APX's magazine release button can be easily reversed. The high-definition 3-dot sight system is designed for quick target acquisition. The sights can be removed for replacement with other types of sights. Thanks to a newly patented modular system, the pistol adapts to different hand sizes with interchangeable back-straps of different thickness and configuration for individualized performance.
