Alternate backstraps significantly changed the grip profile and increased the distance to the trigger. They weren't easily changed out. One magazine held nine rounds and the other carried ten rounds thanks to its taller base pad.
The PX4 Storm F operated with a rotating barrel. The lug remains stationary as the barrel rotates. The channel that spiraled around the bottom surface of the barrel is also shown. Driven by reciprocation of the slide they acted like a set of gears to turn the barrel.
Changing backstraps was not easily accomplished. We couldn’t help but mar the frame while removing the U-shaped bracket that locked the backstrap into place.
Pulling down on release tabs while retracting the slide is exactly the same method used on Glock pistols to remove the top end. But the Beretta tabs were much easier to work than Glock’s.
