Before or after the Scorpion breaks?

It looks like one of those tec-9's or whatever they were called.

This thread is a little lacking in pics, so here's the art of possible with factory doodads:

Also for anyone looking, I created a subreddit with a user manual link (since Beretta doesn't include one in the box) and a running list of links for accessories:

Thanks for the mash info and manual link.

Any feedback on the KCI B&T mags?
I think I read in a review that the only effective difference is the feed lips, which on the OEM allow better feeding of hollow points.

All I run on my B&Ts and the PMXs are the KCI magazines. I've had zero issues with them feeding all types of ammo. Only issues I've seen about the KCI mags are with the TP9 and not feeding flat nose and HPs.

Glocks have been doing that before internet.
Any gun can kaboom. Still own my Glock.

Shitty ammo or reloads is my guess.

Some blame the soft metal CZ used in the bolt and striker block causing peening over time contributing to the OBD.

Yeah I’ve seen those pics..
I don’t know.. I have the oldest Evo on arfcom (2013 released in EU) and I’ve never experienced the horror issues reported on the US models…

I’m not an expert but a complete OOB detonation seems an unrealistic situation to me… the hammer would impact the carrier instead of the FP.

A couple of milliliters before a round is being completely chambered the FPB is engaged but I think that’s not enough to cause a kaboom.

Now if we introduce aluminum case ammo that would be a different story….

Alright alright alright ...  the current PMXS price has pretty much wore me down and exhausted my resistance.   A man can only withstand so much.

Last Stand:  Any experience with the PMXs that indicate ammo-pickiness?   Not so much hollow-points, but bullet weights, charges, etc?   Will it run 100% on cheap old Winchester White Box 115g FMJ, or does it need 124g to run 100%?  

Any final words of discouragement to dissuade me?

I am also curious about the ammo bit.  In addition to bullet weights and loads, has anybody tried flat nose rounds?

Do any binary trigger options work with it?
I think I remember reading that the B&T Franklin trigger would work with the P26.
If one can be made to work, is there anything to prevent an OOB issue?

If these prices stay the same, or drop, I plan to pick one up this year.

Haven't shot mine yet, I've been waiting on a brace from A3 , it's supposed to arrive Friday , I'll run some different rounds through it  this weekend , see if there's any problems with hollow points or flat nose and The different grain ammo

I ran several mags of 124 grain bulk 9mm through mine without issue, same goes for some flat-nose 147 subsonic stuff a buddy of mine brought with us to the range. Ate everything I put through it with no issues.
