    According to one of the FN guys on Vickers Tactical, the baseplate and the coating are the same. You can switch the baseplates out for compatibility.

    My next toy will be the Beretta APX however I will wait a few month before getting 1, have read that many/tons of the APXs were made in Maryland before Beretta moved to Tn. I had hoped to get 1 made in Italy but no luck on that!

    Sadly Beretta had so many issues with the M9A3s they make in Tn. I will be very "Cautious" about getting a Beretta made in Tn. till they get their act together.

    the body is the same the follower is a different color 509 fits into FNS but not the other way around. you can modify the old ones with base plate and maybe with a dremil

    All APXs I've seen online is stamped "Made In Italy". The one I handled at a gun show was stamped "Made In Italy". ???

    My APX was made in Italy.

    And wow is it a fine gun.

    I'd believe that I'd hurry & buy a APX now - they will probably shift their production to TN before long - IMHO

    By the way the APX is wonderful gun - mine has been w/o any problems of any sort.

    The FN 509 has really caught my attention and so has the CZ P10c.

    And of Course the Sig Sauer P320.

    Lots of good guns introduced because of the Army asking for replacement for the Beretta 92f
