Beretta PX4 Storm Sub-Compacts To Ship June 1

Px4subc_s_maxi Beretta says its sub-compact versions of the PX4 Storm pistols are going to start shipping on June 1. The pistols come in either 9mm (13+1) or 40 S&W (10+1) and list for $600 and $575 respectively.

Like many new duty-oriented pistols the sub-compact is highly tweakable. According to the folks at Beretta:

Featuring a Picatinny rail to fit light and laser accessories, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact also adapts to different hand sizes easily with interchangeable backstraps that are included with each firearm. The magazine’s patented “Snap-Grip” allows for maximum concealability when the firearm is holstered, while providing a comfortable and secure grip when the pistol is being fired. An ambidextrous manual safety, ideally positioned on both sides of the slide for easy access by all shooters, and a low-profile slide catch complete this small yet powerful package. Additionally, a reversible magazine release button, in small or large size, can be mounted on either side for the convenience of the operator.

Both versions have 3-inch barrels, a 6.2 inch overall length and tip the scales at 26.1 oz. We'll see about getting a test sample to put through the paces and will report on it more.
