Beretta delivers the ultimate Personal Defense Weapon with the PMXs! Originally developed for the Italian Carabinieri law enforcement officers, the PMXs takes much of its design from its predecessor the PM12, and features many of the same design elements from weapons such as the Tec-9 and other “tube-gun” designs. The PMXs utilizes the proven straight blow back semiautomatic operating system, a design known for its simplicity, reliability, and ease of maintenance. The sheer reliability of the PMXs is perfectly matched by its superb ergonomics and user-friendly controls. The grip is directly inspired by Beretta’s APX series of pistols, offering a decent palm swell to comfortably fill the user’s hands, as well as texturing for a greater purchase on the weapon. The safety and magazine release are located on both sides and the charging handle is reversible, making the PMXs 100% ambidextrous. All of the controls are located in intuitive positions to enhance ergonomics and ensure easy operation. Other features of the PMXs include a wide range of customization options. Picatinny rails in the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions accommodates the use of optics, tactical lights/lasers, and other accessories, and 1/2x28” threading on the muzzle allows for suppressors and muzzle devices. In addition, the magazine well is flared for faster reloads, and translucent magazine allows the user to immediately tell how many rounds are remaining.
