So it's fine by me. The extra wide slide from the serrations is what bugs me, if the APX had kept the slide narrow as a Glock 19 (mine is nearly as wide as a Glock 21) id like mine a bit more. Still a very good gun though (and a crazy deal at the $350 they go for now!).

The Gen 5 finish is very tough but slicker than snot, glad I got a MOS because they really need those front serrations even on a standard overhand if it's wet or oiled.

Too bad they didn't stick with the 19x finish, just as durable and tacky even when wet or oiled, easily my favorite Glock finish, possibly my favorite finish period, if not my favorite color.

I donít disagree that itís slick, and what an odd way to shape a slide on Berettaís part. I still like the finish, itís tough and I like the look and texture despite being slippery when wet. They are not bad pistols and are certainly a bargain right now. I paid less than 300 for my APX centurion.

About PVD, weíll see what your opinion is a ways down the road. I hate PVD.
