September "Free Gun Friday" is the Beretta APX Compact 9mm Pistol! Enter the sweepstakes at the bottom of this article.
The Beretta APX Compact pistol extends the proven APX Series of striker-fired handguns to a concealed carry friendly size. It features a 13+1 (9mm) or 10+1 (.40 S&W) flush fit magazine and can accept magazines for the APX Centurion and APX Full as well.
As with all APX pistols, the Compact has been designed specifically for military and law enforcement users who have a need to carry concealed but want similar handling characteristics to their duty pistols. As a part of the ultimate striker-fired pistol family, these pistols feature aggressive slide serrations and a trigger that breaks at 6lbs with a clear tactile and audible short reset.
Focused on controllability and ergonomics, both the APX Compact and Centurion feature a low bore axis, an ambidextrous slide catch, and a reversible magazine release. With an end-user removable serialized chassis, these APX models can be easily modified with our line of replaceable grip frame housings, available in Flat Dark Earth, Wolf Grey, Black, and Olive Drab.

How Does “Free Gun Friday” Work?
We’ve partnered with a different manufacturer for every month of 2018.
For the first Friday of every month, we’ll announce the new giveaway gun. On that day, we’ll open up the sweepstakes for readers to enter and win the gun. We’ll also release our first video on the gun, where you can learn about what you’re entering to win.
On the second and third Fridays of each month, we’ll release two more videos showing the gun in action. Our experts have taken it to the range and run it through drills to make sure it’s ready to rock by the time it gets to you.
Which brings us to the last day of the month when the sweepstakes ends. The next day we will select a winner and send out an email notifying the lucky reader.
