    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?
