I recently came across this little pistol and what a wonderful piece it is. It's a sub compact weighing just 1.6 pounds and with a magazine capacity of 13+1 9mm rounds or 10+1 .40 S&W !!

If this was available anywhere in Pakistan even around 150k, I would snap this up without a second thought.

What a beauty, I'm in love all over again.

If its as good as its elder sibling, I am sure it will be an excellent CC weapon. I've read a lot of good stuff about the PX4 Storm, so I have little doubts about the sub-compact...

The only problem, as most of the time, is... availability...

Indeed it's ideal for CC. Thanks for sharing Abbas.

Would like to compare it with PT145 size-wise. Will try genitron to see if this is listed there.

No doubt Baretta PX4 Storm sub-compact is one of the top CC pistols in 9x19 mm nowadays. However, Glock 26, CZ2025 Rami, H&K sk2000 and STI Rouge are also worth a consideration. Haven't heard of the availability of last two in Pakistan :(

So you mean to say the RAMI is available? Any idea of whereabouts... my dad's looking for something similar...

Sir, read the last line as:
"Haven't heard of the availability of last three in Pakistan". :)
A mistake

Subcompacts usually are expensive then their counterparts as px4 costing about 300 k so it should be definetly be more expensive . I have fired usp compact in .45 excellent pistol for cc had only one magzine so did not buy it .

many companies have tried to make smaller or CC pistols but none of them have been able to come upto the expectations of the people who want it for HD or SD. I have read about smaller versions of 9mm on many international forums and never read a positive reply about them.

9mm is not a joke and that is why it cannot be shrunk into more than the standard size i.e the famous glock 17, taurus 24/7, beretta 92fs etc models. The recoil is so heavy for a pistol that if it the size is reduced then one can experience the spring bulging out, FTF or FTE. and that is not what one expects/wants from a HD and SD weapon.

i read in a forum or net that the basic difference b/w px4 and px4 compact that the Px4 has a rotating barrel while its compact has the traditional style barrel, Any idea about that?

Best part is, for those who don't like concealed hammers or striker-fired guns, this one is a compact with an external hammer!

Yes, it is tilt barrel, unlike its elder sibling...

A few pics of the net to spice up this thread...

If it doesnt have the original storm`s rotating berrel.. then it merely has the original weapon`s looks not its style of operation..

Salam All,
Ten pieces have been imported into Pakistan via Lahore - a dealer currently is selling one in Peshawar for 275000rs and a Walther p99 QA for 300000rs.

Wsalams, I came across one today, held in and played with it for a while. It looked better in pictures :( It is small yet too bloated (thick) for comfortable carrying. The thickness is much like a full size Stoeger's.

A few pieces and I think they will sell around 250 K.

so not gun of the month anymore ? :)
its almost annoying (borders on aggravating) how misleading pictures and reviews can be. You dont know until you handle the real thing yourself.
