Beretta PX4 9mm 17RD CONSTANT ACTION
[JXF9C21]
$395.00
by Royd W Date Added: Monday 26 November, 2012
Great gun. I love it. I have had it for about 6 months, and in that time it has become my favorite 9mm. The trigger pull is longer than my M&P, but it is smoother, and I find that I actually prefer it. I don't carry, but if I did, I wouldn't have any worries at all about carrying this thing hot. Despite the lack of an external safety, the long pull makes it practically impossible to fire by accident.

One thing I think should be clarified: this gun is not truly double action like advertised. When the hammer is at rest, pulling the trigger does nothing. You can't draw the hammer back with your thumb; you have to rack the slide to place the hammer in firing position. So in this respect, I would call the gun single action only. I discovered while asking around that most dealers are only familiar with the Type-F. If you mention that you want a PX4 Type-C, they think you mean a compact. I assume this is the reason for the "constant action" label.

Ammo-wise, I have fired everything I could get my hands on. It has had only 2 FTF, both with steel-cased Wolf ammo (2 out of 500 rounds). I attribute the failures to the magazines. The mags are smooth steel, and the slight gritty texture of the steel cases seems to get hung up inside. You can feel it when you load them. They seem to grab onto the sides and don't spring up like they should. I tried steel-cased Tulammo as well with the same gritty feel, but they all shot just fine (200 rounds). The brass casings have not had any issues at all. This wrinkle does not bother me. I shoot the steel cased stuff for target practice because it is cheap. Most people would not use it for personal defense. I haven't given up on using steel cases. I want to see if the problem fixes itself after enough rounds. I would like this gun to shoot everything I put into it.

Overall, I really like the gun. I plan on buying the 40 cal version as soon as I have enough money.
