Beretta APX A1 Carry: Burris FastFire 3 Standard

Many gun owners focused on self-defense end up putting a red dot sight on their carry guns. Of course, not all guns ship from the factory compatible with a red dot and even fewer arrive with one already on the gun. The Beretta APX A1 Carry, does, though. There’s a model available from the respected gun maker that ships with a Burris FastFire 3 mounted on the pistol, meaning it’s ready to go out of the box (once you zero your red dot, of course).

The Beretta APX A1 Carry is a compact handgun chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum. It’s a striker-fired gun and was specifically designed for those who concealed carry. Forward and rearward serrations make it easier to manipulate the slide and a textured grip makes a firm hold easier, even if the shooter’s hands are wet. There’s even texture on the frame itself to facilitate better overall handling. This gun does not have an external manual safety but does have a number of internal safety mechanisms such as a striker block safety and internal trigger safety.

As for the Burris FastFire 3 included with the gun, it’s a proven, well-made red dot sight that’s fantastic for tactical applications. The model used on the Beretta APX A1 Carry has a 3 MOA dot which is preferred by many shooters because it doesn’t obscure targets or otherwise distract. It has an automatic brightness sensor, meaning it will adjust itself to the light, but it also offers three manual settings in case the user prefers something different.

Features of the Beretta APX A1 Carry include:

  • Chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum.
  • 8 +1 capacity.
  • 3.0-inch barrel length, making it easier to conceal.
  • An overall height of 4.17 inches without the Burris FastFire3, so adding the red dot only adds a negligible amount of size.
  • An overall length of 5.63 inches, minimizing printing concerns while remaining large enough for comfortable shooting use.
  • Overall width of 0.9 inches, so it’s slim enough to carry comfortably.
  • Aggressive, angled slide serrations make racking the slide easier.
  • An empty weight of 19.8 ounces without a red dot sight, meaning it’s light enough that it won’t drag your belt down.
  • Short, light trigger pull with a clean break and enhanced ergonomics to improve trigger control and accuracy.
  • Modular chassis, making it possible to swap out chassis with other guns from the same line.
