Based on the overall success of the APX pistol series, Beretta introduced a new APX variant in 2018 called the APX Centurion. The Centurion model was designed on the Beretta APX Compact frame but featured a more extended grip to accept higher-capacity magazines. The APX Centurion is designed for the concealed carry and home defense shooter who wanted an APX Compact sized pistol with higher round capacity.
The Centurion model has proven to be popular law enforcement agencies as a duty firearm for plainclothes officers needing a smaller framed version of the APX without sacrificing round capacity. Plus, the Centurion will accept the longer magazines from a full-size APX as well.
Like the APX Compact, the Centurion is available in 9mm and .40 S&W caliber options, including a reduced capacity version for use in magazine restriction states.
In addition to the standard APX Centurion models, Beretta also offers the following Centurion variant models:
In terms of holsters, the Centurion handgun works well inside the waistband or outside the waistband. The smaller footprint hides well IWB but is equally comfortable being carried in a belt holster.
Our top-selling leather holsters for the APX Centurion are the MTR Custom Adversary IWB holster and the MTR Custom Slimline Deluxe Pancake holster (and both can be seen below).
