The release of the Px4 Storm by Beretta in 2004 marked a unique period of Beretta's storied history. Since around the 1995 time period, Beretta has faced the idea that they weren't embracing new technology quick enough and were losing ground in the law enforcement market. While the ever popular Beretta 92 is still the primary sidearm of the US military, the 92 was becoming somewhat obsolete in the law enforcement market for a number of reasons including it's weight, overall size, design, and caliber selection.
In an effort to reclaim some of that market, Beretta released the Cougar series in 1992. While it was adopted by some law enforcement agencies, it barely dented the hold that Glock and Sig have in that marketplace. While Beretta stopped producing the Cougar in 2005, they did receive some very positive feedback from law enforcement about some of features that were liked.
In 2002, Beretta turned it's attention back to the LEO market and started working on designs and prototypes that might fit into that market. Taking positive features from the Cougar series and the 92 series, Beretta released the Px4 Storm series in 2004. The Storm was constructed of lightweight polymer with steel reinforced inserts and featured an integrated light rail (also called a Picatinny rail). The ergonomic design was a significant change in direction for Beretta as the Px4 also featured a modular trigger group, and changeable backstrap options for the grip.
Chambered for the 9mm, .40 cal., .45 ACP; this handgun will meet most of the caliber needs of any police department. Depending on the caliber, the Px4 has a mag capacity of either 10, 14, 17, or 20 rounds. One big selling point for the Px4 was it's ease of disassembly or field stripping. The design was made is such a way that the parts cannot be misplaced or incorrectly located when the pistol is reassembled. This means that the pistol is always reassembled correctly no matter what the conditions.
