These are FANTASTIC sights but...

 

....unless the front sight has been specifically been made to fit the full size PX4, the front sight will be slightly wider than the sight channel. These sights were originally made for the compact carry and fit that slide perfectly. I don't mind the slight overhang, I'm estimating 3/32 on each side. If you do, I know people who have machined them to fit. That said, these sights are a vast improvement over the stock sights. There is no issue with the rear sight as to fit.

Rear Sight A Minus!

 

I never saw the reason for a black rear sight for NIGHT sights! And I still don't. The front sight is very good and easy to see in the dark, but it is hard to determine when the gun is correctly aligned. This is the ONLY part of the new model which I don't like and I haven't been able to find a place where I can order a real NS for the rear of the gun. I think the well known designer of the Carry missed the boat on this aspect of his design.

PX4 compact carry

 

Front sight is awesome, however you can lose ordination at night with the rear sight.

I have the PX4 G model in 40 s/w, its a great gun, but it is very bad with limited accessories. we should be able to modify the heck out this type of gun, especially should have more sight options.

Sights should be called front night sight only.While effective for daytime shooting, blacked out rear sight is useless at night. I installed afrterr market sights for my first px4 compact that are great. Then I bought a compact cary model that came with these. Beretta should offer a replacement rear sight with tritium inserts for all those unfortunate enough to own these sights on the PX4 Compact carry

I have trouble aligning theses sights in transition lighting where I can still identify my target. In my opinion, there is no point of making night sights if you can't align the front and rear sights. You're doing little more than practicing point shooting with these sights. You don't have time for that in a defensive situation, nor do you have time to turn on the lights. Blacked out rears are for competition, not personal protection. It literally makes no sense from a strategic standpoint. I can only imagine it was due to politics that the decision was made to go with this sight design. Unfortunately, the only alternative is the thicker Trijicon HD sights where the front sight is 0.144" wide. Although I prefer the Ameriglo 0.120" T-CAP sights (such as Ameriglo model GL-212-165-120-OR-Q for Glock pistols), I'm going to buy the Trijicons because these do not work well in certain transition lighting that is more prevalent than you might think. Moreover, they should have been thinner.

Rip Off

 

Beretta and dealers, at least the one I bought from, advertise this pistol as having night sights, plural. The gun I received has only a lighted front post with a black rear notch which becomes pretty much invisible in low light to dark. Thus rendering the use of the "night sight" at night pretty much useless as far as any degree of accuracy is concerned. I like the pistol, but it is rendered a daylight only pistol as delivered. Beretta tells me they do not make a rear lighted sight, and directed me to other companies for resolution to the problem. Potential buyers beware.

Great Ameriglo sights

 

Ameriglo makes these, though they’re not currently available as a set on their (rather poor) website. They are also made in a PX4 full size set. Langdon Tactical has both the full size and compact models listed on their website; Ernest Langdon developed the site with Ameriglo. You can order either through Ameriglo directly, just call them. These are fine as “night” sets as well; if it’s dark enough you can’t tell where you rear sight is it’s dark enough to not identify your target, so you’d need a light in those situations. “Night” sites should really be called “dusk” sites.

Worthless Rear Sight

 

While the PX4 Storm is marketed as a "compact carry" it is really at the upper limits of what a concealed carry pistol should be. It is larger and heavier than the 9mm Nano, but what I really dislike is the worthless rear sight which renders the pistol all but useless in low light and at night. Worse even than that was Beretta's flippant response to my inquiry about the rear sight. It looks like my first order of business will be to replace the rear sight.
