The Px4 Compact is equally suited for concealed carry, in a duty holster, plain clothes operations, home defense, or a day range. Though it is completely concealable, the Compact offer a full grip for most shooters. The Compact offers an accessory rail, an integral and retractable lanyard loop, and a cold hammer-forged barrel for ultimate precision. The Compact also houses the Px4 family's rotary barrel system, which allows for in-line feeding for unparalleled reliability. The rotary barrel system leads to radial dissipation of recoil energy resulting in a significant reduction in felt recoil and fast follow-up shots. The slide lock and safety are ambidextrous and the magazine release is reversible, meaning that you can easily use your PX4 with either hand. Sights are user-adjustable.
