Default Beretta px4 rotating barrel

What is the purpose of a rotating barrel? I read that it helps reduce muzzle flip because of the low bore axis. Anything else, because I have not shot it yet and was just curious.

Berreta's website does not mention a rotating barrel as a feature.

The low axis bore of the storm is designed to reduce muzzle flip, according to the information on the website.

The storms have rotating barrels all except the sub compact

For lock-up strength, durability and smoother cycling.

Thanks for the article. It seems to me the more moving parts the more problems but I may be wrong.

Beretta pioneered the rotating bolt on shotguns, everyone is copying that now. Maybe this is the next greatest thing.

Just sayin....

if you plan on running a suppressor the px4 will unscrew the supressor and it will go flying off the end of the gun...

they arent suppressor friendly guns.

I did not say any rotating bolt, just on shotguns. Even the re-introduced A5 has rotating bolt, my Granddaddy's A5 did not.
