Beretta APX - Anybody got one?

http://www.beretta.com/en-us/firearm...&c=Full&mpp=24

If you have one, how do you like it?
Comparisons to other striker fired polymer framed pistols?

It's new and probably not roster approved yet.

Yea I found some "in stock" as of today. Just makes you wonder. A company that can't stick to their own release dates, seems a bit desperate for sales..lMO.

Or people are desperate for the product. Either way, QT only has the early release for first responders/military personnel. I can't partake of this.

The video was informative, thank you.

I have a couple Glock 19's and just picked up a HK VP9, so this isn't a critical purchase for me. Perhaps if I was able to legally carry, the gloved hand issue per the video would make a difference? Beyond sub-compacts, the 19 is as close to perfect in my limited experience as you can get for CC

Unless the APX totally eclipsed the VP9 with regards to a full size polymer striker fired pistol, my next purchase will probably be another VP9, perhaps with the threaded barrel?

If I had extra cash laying around, it would be a nice addition to my collection.
I've always been a sucker for marketing, hence my gen 2 model 22 glock, walther P-99 and LWRC piston AR upper.

Thank you everyone for your opinions and insight.

Mine is coming in next week. Beretta won't allow the gun to be sold until the 15th. $480 with 3 17 round mags was a pretty good deal. So we'll see how long it takes to be put on the roster for Maryland.

I didn't like the APX at first glance - the styling is just plain meh. However, I'm interested after watching Tim's video on the Military Arms Channel. It seems quite shootable and looks like some thought was put into the design. Well, except for the reason behind the thing that sticks out the top of the slide when the trigger is depressed.

The thing that jumps out at me is that it's got the modularity potential of the sig 320, but without the jacked up bore axis. In md, it makes a lot of sense to be able to swap grips and calibers while only doing the stupid paperwork stuff once.

It looks hideous. The only new striker gun I'm even considering buying is the P-10.
