If you have a PX4 or plan on buying or are thinking of buying a PX4, please post your thoughts. I'm interested to see if there's a following developing here in the new forum. Thanks.

I went back and forth with that question for weeks and decided to purchase a Beretta Cougar 8040F. I'm having it shipped to me this week, Was just waiting on my CCW permit to go through. But with that being said...I still want a PX4 :)

I am looking at the PX4. I doubt I will be ready to purchase one until later this year. I am in no hurry and am looking foward to seeing what comments are posted.

Well, even if U really want 1 - I think it's good tow ait and let a new gun design be out a year or two before buying one. Beretta had a lot of problems with the early Tomcats - And Ruger is having issues with their new 345. So, it's not too uncommon to have problems w/ a new gun.

Plus 1

Good advice, but doesn't mean the wait isn't going to be tough!

Which model do you have...F or G? I'm getting the bug and the bug's biting! 8)

Do you have a Holster for it? I searched everywhere for a PX4 storm holster, there aren't many out there.

I have the F model. I bought a Safariland holster for it just for use at the range. High Noon and DeSantis make a nice holster for the PX4 too. I've been thinking of ordering one for some time... I need to pull the trigger, so to speak.

No - no problems at all. The safety/decock lever will take a little bit of time to loosen though. From what I understand, the F is easily converted to a G with the purchase of the stealth G lever. I don't think they are very expensive either. If I run across a link I will post it.

I guess the only other thing I can say is that the magazines are VERY tight at first. Rounds 14 and on were absolutley a pain to load. I bought an HKS speedloader and now my problems have vanished (plus the mag springs are wearing in.)

If everything works out, I may get to shoot one today - I hope I don't like it because I don't want to have to get onthe bandwagon of wanting ANOTHER gun :p - hahahahaha

I've been thinking long and hard, and after just buying my 96 Brig, I think my next gun will be a PX4 in the .40 Caliber. Just waiting for my tax return before I try to get one.

Well, I fired a few rounds thru the PX4 - It was okay - The owner's sights are off - he's getting it adjusted soon. Now a lot of recoil. Still prefer my SW99 - but, that's what makes the world go around - differences :)

Hi, I am new to the boards. I have been into guns for a few years. My friend has a Beretta and when I shot his I new I liked it. My first gun was a Beretta 92fs Brig. I also have an older model Python, a Super Blackhawk, and a Walther P-22. I am looking for a PX4 but I decided to wait for the .40 to come out. I have checked at the local gun stores... Megasports and The Gun Shop and all anyone can tell me is that they were supposed to come out last year. Anybody have any idea when it will actually hit the market? Thanks!

I bought a PX4 9mm and it's hands-down the best out-of-the-box shooter I own. The weight and balance are great. I traded out the medium grip for the small and I like the way it feels.

I installed the stealth controls from David Olhasso (about 20 minutes worth of work) and now I have a G model. That's my preferred configuration anyway.

The only down side is the lack of quality holster manufacturers (so far). BladeTech makes Kydex holsters, but their delivery time is running 5+ weeks. I have a fondness for CompTac holsters but they haven't started making them for the PX4 yet.

As soon as I can get a good holster for it, it's going to become my choice for USPSA production division.

I see that they carry some for the Fullsize USP but do those work for the USPC?

Does anyone have one for the USPC?

My PX4 .40 fired dead balls accurate out of the box and ate everything I fed it.

I got to shoot one again yesterday - same one I shot back in Feb. Guy got the sights adjusted and it works much better.

It's "okay." Everyone has their preferences. It doesn't interest me enough to buy one. I think I shot it better than he did, but still not as well as my SW99. I also prefer my HK USP compact over it.

But that's what makes the world go around :-D
