What exactly is the difference between the type C ( Constant Action ) and the type D ( Double action only ) on the Px4 type handguns from Beretta? Is the type C like the DAK action from Sig?

Also, are they available to civilians or LOEs only?

PX4 Storm pistol is available in four basic models:
Type F - conventional double action with manual safety/decocker;
Type D - double action only, less safety or decocker, with spurless hammer;
Type G - conventional double action with manual decocker and no safety; and
Type C - with so called "constant action" and spurless hammer (sort of DAO system with less trigger pull weight). In the F and D modifications

But what exactly is the difference between type C and type D? Aren't they both DAO?

Are those types sold to civilians such as myself?

The D is a traditional double action. The hammer is fully at rest, and pulling the trigger fully pulls it back and releases it.

The C is a new hybrid almost like a Sig DAK. The hammer is resting at a "half-cocked" position. If you took something like the F model, and started to pull the hammer back and then let go, it would stop at a position that would not make contact with the firing pin. That's the same spot the C is always in.
So the pull is a little easier for every shot than the D. But you lose second strike capability on a hard primer. Once the hammer drops to the full rest, and the slide doesn't cycle the hammer and put it in the half-cocked, then you can't just pull the trigger again.

Hope that is somewhat clear.

Thanks! That is exactly what I have been looking for.

Do you know if these types can be bought by civilians or does Beretta limit them to LEOs only?

I'm pretty sure it isn't LEO only.

Here's a .40 for sale:
