Other than the Px4 Storm, and the Desert Eagle, what other pistols use a rotating bolt?

I was trying to think of some but I can't think of any.

Dunno about rotating bolt, but the Beretta Cougar has some kinda unique lockup system that may be tangentially related....

You mentioned the Beretta PX4, but the previous Beretta product, the Cougar, also used a rotating barrel. Beretta sold the rights to these guns to Stoeger, and they are now made in Turkey and still sold in the US.

the steyr SPP and TMP use a rotating barrel with lugs that lock into the bolt similar to a bolt that locks into the barrel.....

And I do believe the ill-fated Colt 2000 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colt_2000) had one as well.

The Mauser pistols used a rotating bolt design. They were bought by Sig and that pistol was disconntinued.

From reading the list you guys put up it's safe to say there isn't one of them I'd buy.

Mauser and Desert Eagle.

The Berettas and Steyrs mentioned have rotating barrels, not bolts.

Thanks for that clarification!

So which does the Px4 Storm use?
