Recently announced by Beretta, the new APX pistol looks to be a real contender for the holsters of US law enforcement officers and militaries around the world. Although it was just announced, there are several rigs that should already work with this new gun. As time goes on, new custom leather and Kydex holsters will become available.
So, without further ado, here is the GunsHolstersAndGear list of Beretta APX holsters…
Since this gun is designed for police and military service, it only makes sense that Blackhawk makes three of drop leg holsters that will fit. The first is the Universal Drop Leg holster. The second is the Omega IV Ultra Universal holster. The final is the Special Operations holster. All of these rigs attach to a standard rigging or nylon duty belt and then to the upper thigh of the officer or soldier.
An inside-the-waistband holster, the Quick & Dirty from Cebeci Arms is a universal style rig that works with full size handguns like the APX. The Quick & Dirty has a clip that allows the holster to work with virtually any size casual belt and securely hold the Beretta in place. While it may not be the most exciting option on the market, it is priced right at less than $20.
Condor makes a nylon rig that mounts onto a plate carrier, vest or other gear using MOLLE. The Tactical VT holster is designed to wrap around the pistol and will work with guns that have a light mounted. It is oriented vertically, but may work at an angle.
An adjustable MOLLE holster is available for the APX from Uncle Mike’s. This holster is available in black only and will work with both right- and left-handed shooters. It is fully adjustable, which allows it to work with pistol mounted lights. Also, the holster can be worn on a duty belt.
UTG makes a wide range of inexpensive shooting products and offers a pair of holsters for this pistol. The first is an inexpensive shoulder holster. The rig has padded shoulders for ease of carrying during a long day. Also it has two spare magazine pouches in addition to the holster. The rig is available in four colors: black, OD green, Army digital camo and woodland digital camo.
UTG also makes a universal leg holster. These rigs are available in a variety of colors including black and digital woodland camo.
About the APX
The Beretta APX is a striker-fired pistol designed by the company for military and police work. In its initial offering, it will be a full size handgun and come in one of three calibers: 9mm, .40 S&W and 9×21. The gun was officially introduced at the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) in February of 2015.
Future guns based on this design may be developed in other calibers and frame sizes.
This handgun offers interchangeable backstraps to fit a wild variety of hand sizes. Additionally, it has a Picatinny-type accessory rail for the addition of lights, lasers and other shooting gear. Much like the Glock and Smith & Wesson M&P, the gun is simple in design and rugged.
Beretta is not the only company to introduce a new polymer frame handgun for military use in the past year. Heckler & Koch released the VP9 pistol about nine months before. That gun has proved to be wildly popular, and I suspect the APX will be equally well received.
