Beretta USA Launches New APX A1 Carry Pistol

Accokeek, MD - Beretta is pleased to announce the launch of a brand-new pistol, the APX A1 Carry - the newest evolution of the popular APX Carry series platform. The APX A1 Carry encompasses the reliability and quality the APX family has become known for within the shooting communities now with a shorter and lighter trigger pull, red-dot optic ready slide, and improved modularity.

“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.

Years of extensive training and real-world use converge in a handgun designed and built for everyday carry and suited for anyone with personal defense on their mind.

With a shorter and lighter trigger than its predecessors, the enhanced ergonomic and sensory experience consists of a clean break with quick reset, aiding with consistent shot placement and ease of use.

The red-dot ready slide is designed to receive a variety of optics plates, one of which will be provided by Beretta free of charge through the warranty registration process online, including Burris, C-more, Shield RMS-C, and Holosun K Series.

The APX A1 Carry features a low bore axis that produces less felt recoil and a natural point of aim and dramatically improves follow-up shot acquisition.

With aggressive slide serrations, a textured grip frame, and a flat trigger guard, this new pistol enables the user to ensure and maintain a firm, secure, and instinctive grip in all situations.

The APX A1 Carry was developed to be easily concealed with its single-stack, sub-compact, and thin grip design that makes it essentially invisible, no matter the clothes you wear or whether you carry inside or outside the waistband.

Available in Standard Black, Flat Dark Earth, Wolf Grey, and OD Green frame colors, this versatile pistol can be customized for each individual with the selection of the ideal magazine for their concealment style: an extended 8-round magazine, a 6-round magazine with pinky extension, and a flush baseplate (included in the box).

Debuted at the 2021 USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Expo in Fort Worth, TX this past weekend, the Beretta APX A1 Carry is now available for an MSRP of $449.
