Anyone ever fired one of those Beretta carbines.
 
The Cx4?

They seem kinda neat. A light, ergonomic longarm that takes pistol mags and is convertible to 4 different rounds. They seem like they'd be fun plinkers if they didn't cost almost a grand.

Yep, I was not really impressed with it though.

This question has been asked several times. Do a search on it for more replies and info.


I owned the 9mm for a while. I put a rail on it and a red dot and a single point sling. It is light, accurate and reliable. Other than it is a pistol round and high capacity 45 mags are not available, it is a nice gun.

I was very impressed with it.:)

Beretta cx4 storm
 
I have a 40 cal it is a great entry weapon, accurate and fun to shoot, you can use Beretta 96 mags for a 15 rounder, comes with a 10 round.

They are pretty sturdy firearms. 50 yards is VG.

I think it is the best rifle in its class. It is easy to shoot accurately, in part because of the excellent balance and the great iron sights. It has been adopted by several large PD's. The only downside - for range shooting - is the heavy trigger pull. It is not horrible as you may have heard, but it is military grade. Not getting into the details, it is easy to improve. Field stripping and cleaning are remarkably easy. The design is often imitated, the best form of flattery. Beretta ships the CX4 in an elegant plastic carrying case, also probably best in the class.
The carbine got an A from Gun Tests, and those guys are not paid by advertisers.
I helped a friend buy a new .40 CX4 from a dealer for $790 just recently.

Buds has the 9mm model for $650. I didn't look to see what the price was on a 40 cal. The local sheriffs department has a couple Beretta 9mm carbines for undercover officers. The 9mm model uses a 92fs magazine. I didn't find the Beretta carbine hard to shoot. I would ditch the vertical grip. The forestock is pretty small.

You have to add the cost of a matching pistol that takes the same mags.:) You do pick up 100-150 fps.

The carbine does make a difference. I had an old box blade that I cut the hitch off it to refurbish another piece of equipment. I had shot the box blade a number of times with a pistol, without putting a hole in it. I shot it with a Hi Point 9mm carbine loaded with FMJ ammo. The carbine ventilated the rusted metal every time I shot it.
