    New PX4

    Just got back from purchasing a PX4.

    This is my first handgun purchase and I am pumped. That thing is gorgeous.

    I just started checking around here, and looks like I might have overpaid though. I got it out the door for $530. Thing is, availability for handguns is terrible up here in my neck of the woods. And this place is always the cheapest place compared with all the other stores in the area.

    Whatever, its still all mine. Can't wait for the waiting period to end to get it to the range.

    One more question....

    Picked up my PX4 Last Friday, and have since put 200 rounds through it.

    I love this gun. No pics yet, sorry, just been shooting and cleaning.

    For a relatively inexpensive gun, I sure get a lot of looks and questions about it though. For instance, I got to shoot two different sigs, all cuz I let someone shoot it when he asked me what it was I was shootin, and he then offered me the same courtesy. And my buddy is ready to trade in his glock on one. The recoil difference in the .40 sure is sweet.

    A question though, when I first looked at the gun I remember a blue circular container being in the case with the gun. When I went back to pick it up, I didnt even notice, but its no longer in the case. I had actually forgotten until my buddy who was there at the shop I bought it reminded me by asking what was in it when he saw it again at the range. What is this blue plastic thing?? Is there something important in there?

    Go back and get your blue Beretta shot glass/jello mold, since it should be in the case. I'm serious!

    It's been surmised that the blue thing is a spacer, so that when PX4s get stacked the cases don't crush. Makes sense to me, although no matter why it's in there, it's yours and you should have it.

    I'd go back to the gun store and see what they did with it, especially since they overcharged you for the gun. You should at least get all the goodies.

    The mystery blue Beretta cup makes a convenient place for used Q-tips, patches, etc. when cleaning.

    Wow... those Beretta guys think of everything.

    I have had one for about 6 months now and love it.
    I carry a Beretta 84 in the summer but have switched to the px4 for winter carry. I have about a thousand rounds through it and it has been flawless so far. I think you will really enjoy it. The only heartbreak is I paid $375 new for mine with three mags.......Sorry.

    Sometime in 2008, I will get a PX4 - Ive decided to get my first 40 cal handgun. I have shot the PX4 in 40 cal, and was amazed at how soft a shooter it is for a 40 cal.

    Now, my next 3 guns are:

    Beretta CX4
    Beretta PX4
    XD 45

    I haven't decided which order they will come in, though...

    PX4 Jams

    Hey all. I just picked up a used Px4 40s&w the gun looks brand new, but when i
    insert my clip and release the slide, the first round jamms up. When shooting every thing works fine. I have cleaned and clean this thing over and over. Also it seems to be off sight, my glock 22 and my Fn9 are dead on compared to the Px4. any ideas welcome, and thanks.


    One last thing how long should the night sights glow?

    The PX4 doesn't have real night sights - those are luminescent sights.

    If you are having jams - I'd contact Beretta.

    As for the aim... Where are the shots going on the target?

    I have been shooting the .40 and it's always on target. I am thinking of a sub-compact in the same and maybe a .45 when they come out.

    You can get regular night sights for these if you want them..

    The PX4 needs a fair amount of momentum to chamber the first round.

    I found that when I let the slide go slowly with my hand, sometimes the round did not chamber completely. However, taking my hand off the slide and just releasing the slide release... chambers a round every time.

    I'll be getting a 40 cal PX4 in the next 2-3 weeks.

    I had a CX4 but didn't like it. I just sold it, and will use the cash for the PX4.

    I tried a mag thru a 40 cal about a year or so ago - I was amazed at the lack of recoil for a 40 cal.

    The rotating barrel in the 9mm didn't do as much for it I think. But it works well in 40 cal.

    I've already bought some 40 cal rounds to store. So, just need the gun. The prices are too high in my area. I will probably hit the next gunshow.

    I just joined the ranks of Beretta owners last week. I was so excited about it that I decided to start my own YouTube gun channel. I made one video of the Px4 and posted it. Planning on making a couple more on it before I go to my other guns. If you'd like to see it, I'll link to it here. I'm not a professional videographer so don't be too harsh on me.

    Wow, holy old posts...

    Since my last post, I did get a 40 cal PX4. Later sold it to put the $ towards a custom 1911 I ordered in 2008.

    Had a 9mm PX too, until I sold it last month to pay for a second M&P Shield. But, the PX4 is a fantastic gun!

    I'm looking forward to shooting my compact this week. I just bought a box of 100 Federal FMJ 9mm at Walmart for $19.97. Cheaper than my .380.

    Don't feel bad, the cheapest I could find it locally here is the $550 that I paid.
