Getting a Px4 C...

I just put this little jewel on lay away two nights ago. Beretta's web site barely makes mention of the Type C but speaks volumes about the F and G. They even dedicated a site to the F and G www.px4storm.com. The thing looks great and feels great. I have read good things about the Px4's but the C seems to be unknown. Some guy on this forum even dropped his off a four story roof into a river w/o incident.

My biggest concern is that it may end up being like my FN 49. That thing looked great and felt great in my hand but the trigger was something like 60 lbs and four miles up a steep hill. I only put 42 rounds down it because I was so disgusted with the pull (the PC mags weren't great either). Couldn't hit anything with it because it was a battle just to fire it. I still have dreams where I can't shoot the bad guy because I can't force the trigger back (really). I ended up selling it at a show while I was unemployed last Feb. or it might still be at the bottom of my hall closet, clean and almost NIB.

Anybody who has experience with a Px4 and especially a type C please tell me your experiences with it.

That was me.

I have the type F, and have never laid hands nor eyes on a type C, though. It is mentioned only in passing in the manual for mine.

Even the double action trigger pull on the F is quite good; I imagine the C would be somewhere in between the double and single pulls of the type F.

I have a Typer F PX4 and I like it alot. The trigger pull is very nice. I do not think that you will be disappointed.

I take it the the type "C" is a DOA model of the Px4?

Actually, whirlwind, the Type C is the "constant action" configuration. As I understand it, it has an "LEO" trigger mod similar to H&K's LEM and Sig Sauer's DAK systems.

The Px4 does have a DAO model, though, on the "D" configured pistol.

Back on topic, I've also not seen one. Barely mentioned anywhere. Talking to a Beretta rep, it's gonna be more or less the "D" pistol, with a shorter, lighter pull.

Shorter, lighter pull is my friend. :) I look forward to running several thousand rounds through it in the future. I can't wait until Christmas is over and I can gather the money to get this off lay away. The thing is beautiful and some day it may be considered a rare collector piece. I however, have every intention of wearing it completely out before then. :p Collector pieces are for museums. I shoot the hell out of mine.

The FN 49 was a beautiful piece of hardware but DANG, pulling the trigger pointed 5 degrees right unless I was actively correcting it. It made me think I was going to grow, then burst, a roid just trying to shoot it.

My G23 has a stronger spring in it which resulted in an absolutely wonderful pull and reset. My 27 needs this spring but isn't bad. I'll take care of that next time I go to a show and the Glock armorer dude is there.
