Beretta USA’s new, most advanced Sub-Compact sidearm, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact pistol, delivers concealed carry handling with large frame firepower.

Available in two calibers, 9mm with 13 round magazine capacity and .40 S&W with 10 round magazine capacity, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact will be available in all the traditional configurations (F, G, C, D actions) that have made its Px4 Storm full-size counterpart a preferred choice of Law Enforcement agencies and civilians across the United States.

This new pistol uses a very reliable locked breech, providing a more compact and lighter weight system.  Additionally, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact utilizes a stainless steel barrel which requires less maintenance and is corrosion resistant, making it perfectly suited for concealment close to active perspiring bodies.

Hailed by some as the most accurate Sub-Compact pistol on the market, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact offers absolute reliability and consistent accuracy in a small package.

Featuring a Picatinny rail to fit light and laser accessories, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact also adapts to different hand sizes easily with interchangeable backstraps that are included with each firearm.

The magazine’s patented “Snap-Grip” allows for maximum concealability when the firearm is holstered, while providing a comfortable and secure grip when the pistol is being fired. An ambidextrous manual safety, ideally positioned on both sides of the slide for easy access by all shooters, and a low-profile slide catch complete this small yet powerful package.

Additionally, a reversible magazine release button, in small or large size, can be mounted on either side for the convenience of the operator. The Px4 Storm Sub-Compact was designed by Beretta USA and will be manufactured in the United States at Beretta USA’s Accokeek, MD facility.

    After a couple of thousand rounds, this is my favorite handgun of all time (and I have quite a few). Even with the short barrel, at 10 yards I can rapid fire a full clip into a 5 inch circle. Taking a little longer to aim, that circle gets a lot smaller.

    I also like the fact that it will take the 20 round clips from the full size. I like sticking one of those in my pocket for a backup.

    Just bought one and put 200+ rounds through the PX4 SC. No jams, very fun to shoot.

    Victor,
    With all due respect, many shooters tend to hail glocks, xd, etc… I have no issues with that. Certain shooters tend to rely certain brands. The PX4 SC on the other hand is a very accurate reliable handgun. Perfect for large frame men and petite women… At 15 yards I can keep it in an area the size of a dollar, and I’m not a pro by a long shot. My wife is a first time shooter and she kept every magazine in the silhouette target at ten yds… No issues except when she limp wrists, of which she got two jams… Not an issue with enough practice… Glocks are good but the Beretta is a tried and true brand of which the PX4 hails and does not disappoint. One of my best firearms purchases to date… Your opinion is just that, your opinion and I respect it.

    I’ve put about 6K rounds through my PX4 storm. Never jammed or failed even when I didn’t clean it so regularly.. .Just the best gun I found in the store. The one that felt the best.. and I love how it shoots. It was not a financial decision either, but one in which I liked what I found.

  • Victor

    Shot one in 9mm tonight, no jams or malfunctions. After having multiple people fire this particular weapon it’s obvious that its accuracy is marginal. To the person who said this beats a Springfield or Glock in this particular class: get real. This isn’t even in the same zip code. Acceptable? Yes. Exemplary? No. Get a Glock or an XD, or if you have a real budget go get a P2000SK.

  • I use it to wash my dishes…

  • Nathan

    I sold my Beretta 92FS with all the trimmings to a friend after more than 15 years of reliable service and 10K rounds. This weapon has never failed me. This is the reason I bought the PX4 and PX4 subcompact. I have put a combined 500 rounds through them consisting of Wolf, Tulammo, and reloads. I did this to see if I could get them to have a problem and none were found. I am not an expert, but far from a novice and I will put either of these against anything else at the range. My only wish is that Beretta made rifles, a combination of the accuracy of an AR and the reliability of an AK would be the best of both worlds! I second the “mama mia it’s a beretta!”

  • Denner37

    There is no better handgun in it’s class. Glock, XD,S&W,etc….. You can pay more but you won’t get a better handgun. Personal preferences are yours. Ergonomics, fit and finish, accuracy, reliability, concealability and 13+1 firepower with the flush magazine. All I can say about this gun is “ma ma mia”, it’s a Beretta!.

  • PhillyRyno

    I have put over 2000 rounds through my Px4 subcompact in less than a year and it is an amazing firearm. No jams and is very accurate, I carry it everyday and is becoming more and more like a cellphone or keys or whatever else you carry on an everyday basis, cigarettes and a lighter …. Whatever!!! I received the insight X2 laser light combo for christmas and would highly recommend it if you wanna put a bullet down the barrel of that bad guy on the paper they give you at the range at 55 feet. My last review, and I hope you never have this happen, comes from this past Christmas eve when a crazy fella acting like he had a firearm, threatened to send all of my family members Home For The Holidays saying that he had a bullet for each one of us, I calmly put one in the chamber in front of him and replied that I had 13 for him. Problem solved, no police necessary, merry Christmas to me! Enjoy yours when you get one!

    Got my TX CHL one month ago. Love my G19 but it is too big for me to conceal. Choice was PX4 F sub vs. CZ 2075. Got Baretta. Ran 150 rounds 9mm Fiocci and Magtech on first trip to range. 20 head shots at 10 yards, 20 near perfect chest shots at 7 yards and multiple “gosh that was just about where I was aiming” at 15 yards. Very light recoil. Only jam was truly a lack of experience with this gun thing. Field strip very easy. Dirty? HAHA! All semi autos get dirty. If you shoot it, well it’s the same as working for a living! Granted I am a novice, but this could be the last pistol I buy. Highly recommend. Gun totin’ physician from Houston.

  • Tim

    The px4 sub compact is recommended. I have ran about 300 rounds through it with no problems and I bought this gun used.. Very comfortable to hold but you do need larger hands. Low recoil. Very accurate.

  • Talked to Baretta. The 40 S&W sub compac storm will be out next month (November) 2010. Can not wait to get one.

  • usman

    i want a any pistol with in the range of 2000 if any one in pakistan plz tell at 0347-4448144

  • Larry Parcell

    Just bought PX4 SC I ran 3 boxes 50 ea.from Academy thru with no problems. Them ran some Blazer ammo thru and had jams. I think you may just have to find the ammo that works best. I personally think the weapon is fine. Cheap ammo I would blame before the weapon.

  • AM

    Have now put 500rounds through my PX4 9mm F model subcompact with no problems of any kind. Soft recoil, and points almost as easily as a 92 FS. Comfortable to carry – using a High Noon Alter Ego provides comfort and carry position flexibility. Reccomended.

  • JD

    We bought this gun last year NIB. Consistent failure to feed and failure to fire. have found numerous simular accounts from others online. Guns gets VERY dirty from use. Dirtiest gun(including revolvers) I have shot.

    I own two full size PX4 and two CX4 carbines; I love these guns. However I am now on the hunt for reviews on the Compact PX4, particularly in the 40 cal S&W. I can find 30+ reviews on the Sub-Compact PX4 but nothing beyond the tech sheet on the compact model off the Beretta web-site.

    Any suggestions?

    Purchase Storm and have jams, stovepipes, on almost every clip. It does not stay racked back on the last bullet either.
    150 rounds and disappointed.

  • Alex

    The best gun is Sprinfield XD.

  • Spencer East

    I own several automatics and the PX4 SubCompact is my favorite. It is smooth and as accurate as my full size Glock. It has yet to misfire or jam. It’s my best conceal gun too…its a little heavy with a full clip but conceals easily with a shirt or sweat shirt.

  • Dennis

    I have owned the full size PX4 45 ACP since February 2009. I love it! My wife and I went window shopping for her a concealed carry 9mm. She fell in love with the PX4 SC. I ordered the subcompact PX4 9mm today. I can’t wait to see the look on her face when she gets it!

  • Ron Curry

    The Px4 9mm is a perfect handgun for me,It handle very well for a Sub-compact,I love it!

  • John M

    Does anyone know what laser/light fits this rail? I bought the Sig Sauer STL-900L and the rail fits but it’s not long enough to lock it into place. Is there an adaptor to make it fit or do I just need to spring for the more expensive and adaptable TLR series of lights? I’ve got the PX4 Sub-compact 9mm … fantastic gun but I want a light and laser housing for it!

  • Phillip

    You can order this mag. it fits the PX4 Storm, but can be used in the Subcompact pistol.

  • Matt

    Does anyone know if there is a 10 round 9mm mag that fits the px4 storm subcompact? I live in NY, the gun is here but I can’t buy it until I find a 10 round 9mm mag that fits!

  • scott

    paid half down 2 years ago and still no gun! I should have got the xd! beretta sucks

  • Mark H.

    DM Bullard, in Texas makes a few styles for it:

    Beretta themselves now have one specific for the subcompact, with a slight FBI style forward rake & thumb-break (which I like), it’s on the U.S. Website.

  • Jose

    Me gustaria comprar una pistola subcompacta y estoy decidiendo entre glock 26 o px4 subcom quisiera informacion sobre prestaciones al momento del disparo, presicion,fiabilidad,etc

  • Britton

    I just purchased the sub compact px4. I went out and shot it today for the first time. This is some of the first times I have ever shot a handgun, and I was shooting targets easily from about 30 feet away. I’m very impressed by the accuracy of this gun. I also love how lightweight it is and how easy it is to conceal. Does anybody know where I can find an ankle holster for this gun? Also, the ammo I have is Blazer Ammunition 9mm 115GR. My px4 seemed to be having problems with this ammo..has anybody else used this ammo and had problems?

  • Rexstorm

    I am very disappointed with loading the Magazine for the PX4 .40 SW.
    Such a magnificent Pistol with the worst magazine loading experience i have ever had.
    I wish Beretta will redesign the Mags for SW .40

  • EWW
  • Kevin Carpenter

    I searched and searched for a good holster. Fianally found one. It is by Don Hume and is made for the XD subcompact. Fits perfectly, but it is an open top. (That was fine with me). Be sure to specify XD subcompact though

  • SR

    I WANT THE 40S&W! I WANT IT BAD!!!

    Richard Kidd — “Uncle Mike’s Sidekick” holsters are perfect for this size gun. They’re universal based on approximate gun size. I use it for my rossi revolver and with firm slacks it’s TRULY INVISIBLE! I could tell you I have it on me and you would never know where just by looking (w/o feeling me up :-P)

  • help! any word for californians?

  • BOB GARAPOLA

    REGARDING SUBCOMPACT PRICES– THE LOWEST PRICE FOR A PX4 SUB COMPACT $439.00 40 CAL @ ATLANTIC TACTICAL COULD NOT FIND A 9MM VERSION AT THIS SITE- THE BEST PRICE FOR A 9MM SUBCOMPACT IS 507.00 CHECK THE WEB AND SAVE!

    PUT THE SAVINGS INTO AN ITALIAN MADE HOLSTER SHOWN ON BERETTA USA SITE $50.00 LOOKS LIKE TOP QUALITY LEATHER 3 TYPES AVAIL.

  • TRY PASSPORT HOLSTERS MODEL= KANGEROO PX4 3 ” + HOLDS ONE MAG IN KODURA ABOUT 25.00 I HAVE ONE FOR MY PPK WELL MADE!

    BERETTA USA SELLS 3 – ONE [PADDLE] WORKS FOR STANDARD AND SUBCOMPACT BLACK LEATHER 50.00
    BACK ORDER DUE IN E/O APRIL

    FOBUS – ISRAEL MAKES ONE THAT WORKS ABOUT 23.00 IN POLYMER USED BY THEIR ARMY 1,8 OZ.

  • My friend George S. very recently purchased the full size 9mm version of this Beretta. Right out of the box the full size PX4 hits everything we aim at, even my wife who prefers a smaller calliber shoots tight groupings with this gun. I am interested in this sub-compact as a primary carry weapon and hope it will preform as well as its bigger version.
    I am having trouble finding what the price is on the PX4 sub compact, the one price I found on the gun broker site was $595, is this about what everyone else has paid?

  • Ben

    Bummer for the Canadians… I’m getting mine this week!

  • sue

    I have the new PX4 Storm Subcompact and am having a hard time finding a paddle style concealment holster for it. Any recommendations? Right hand in black leather preferably.

    Thanks,
