The Beretta APX is a striker-fired, semi-automatic pistol manufactured by Beretta. The APX was Beretta's first ever striker-fired full-size duty pistol, first modular pistol and first tilting-barrel locked-breech pistol design, a stark departure from the Beretta 92 or the Beretta Cougar.


The APX was initially designed in 2016 after five years of development for the U.S. Military's XM17 Modular Handgun System competition, however it did not secure the winning contract. The gun is modular because it utilizes a serialized steel chassis that can be removed from the frame to allow for customization and easier maintenance. The name APX refers to "Advanced Pistol X" (the "X" referring to a caliber of choice), as the firearm can change calibers and frame sizes easily. The same chassis can accommodate different frame sizes, as well as different frame colors (with black, flat dark earth, wolf grey or olive drab green being offered from the factory). Backstraps are also interchangeable, and different colored backstraps can be put onto different colored frames to get even more variety. After it was introduced to the market in 2017, the APX quickly became a "family" of pistols. Some of these designs include the Centurion (a shorter slide and barrel on a near-full sized frame), the Compact (the Centurion slide and barrel on a subcompact frame) the Target (long-slide competition variant with improved trigger, sights and barrel), the Combat (regular model with threaded barrel and optic mount), the APX RDO (retains the red dot optic ready slide from the Combat but does not have a threaded barrel) and the Carry (a Beretta Nano with some design changes to fit into the APX family).

In May 2022, Beretta announced the APX A1, an ergonomically improved standard APX designed by Giovanni Prandini. The slide comes standard as red dot optic ready in addition to the iron sights, and the slide also features more traditional and aggressive slide serrations. The slide is the biggest change from the original model, but the frame includes a few changes too, such as more aggressive stippling, a higher, undercut trigger guard, an enhanced beavertail and no finger grooves. The original APX model was designated the "APX Zero" and was discontinued as a legacy model later that year.
