This is my Beretta APX. The pistol was designed to be the replacement for the militarys M92, but it was rejected and offered to the public instead.
I'm not sure how I feel about this gun, it feels good in the hand... points well...good weight for a strikerfire...but the trigger is terribly heavy, and the slide is quite loose fitting. Easier to blow back though, so likely more shots per cartridge as a result.

you keep referring to these pistols as GBB..

that i know as Gas Blow Back, a term usually used to describe an Air Soft Pistol using Green Gas?Propane? (i don't know)..

but yours are CO2 powered guns shooting steel BBs though, yes?

Yes GBB meaning Gas blowback as opposed to NGB, Non gas blowback. Just a way to identify a pistol with a slide that functions.
Likely not widely used term I apologize LOL.
They all shoot CO2 a couple of them can also take green gas.
Blowback semi auto pistols are the only ones I'm really interested in collecting or shooting.
I may get into revolvers one day, we'll see...

I have seven spaces and the final two slots are soon to be filled...

I know you say that "Blowback semi auto pistols are the only ones I'm really interested in collecting or shooting", but I suggest you try a fully auto blowback CO2 pistol, like the Barra 009, which is a copy of the Glock 18, or the Beretta 92A1.

As far as I know, the APX is a cosmeticaly modified 9XP, long double action only trigger, to light of a slide, but somewhat surprisingly accurate...

But great looking gun...
