The Beretta APX A1 Carry in Flat Dark Earth.

Building on the back of the popular APX striker-fired pistol, Beretta adds modularity and other upgrades in a smaller package. Specifically, the Beretta APX A1 Carry focuses on defensive carry upgrades like a lighter trigger pull and red-dot optic compatibility.

Like the rest of the APX Carry series platform, the APX A1 features a striker-fired action. However, the updated trigger is now shorter and lighter. As a result, the enhanced ergonomic and sensory experience provides a clean break and quick reset. Also, the low bore axis produces less felt recoil and a natural point of aim. The clean break and natural rest, coupled with the low bore axis, ensures consistent shot placement and follow-up shot acquisition.

Riding atop the textured grip frame is an aggressively serrated slide, therefore ensuring easy manipulation even under duress. The slide also accepts a variety of optic plates and Beretta will provide one through the Warranty process online. Optic plates are available for popular optics from Burris, C-more, Shield RMS-C and Holosun K Series.

The APX A1 Carry was designed to be easily concealed and features a single-stack, sub-compact thin grip. Additionally, the textured grip and flat trigger guard help ensure a firm and secure grip every time. Shipping with an extended 8-round magazine, 6-round magazine and flush baseplate provides multiple concealment options.

“Beretta USA is excited to be bringing the latest variant of the APX family to market here at USCCA in Fort Worth. We are embracing the Red Dot Optic revolution and excited to be bringing an exciting and innovative offering to the concealed carry market that further eases training and use under stress for defensive purposes,” Jeff Hobson, VP of Marketing and Sales, said.
