I've owned both the fullsized PX4s and the subcompact models, and they are really good pistols. I just bought the new compact model for a Christmas present and it has become my new favorite PX4. Beretta engineers did some design tweaks to the recoil spring and put a polymer cover on it. As a result the new compact has less felt recoil than the full size and way less than the subcompact model. The pistol is a tack driver with an excellent trigger out of the box. Beretta is going to sell a lot of their latest PX4. Size wise it's slightly longer in the grip than my Smith & Wesson M&P9c, but is really comfortable in hand. Well done Beretta.
