Well, considering that I spent around $560 for a Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm pistol, $758 for a carbine isn't that much. As for anything else concerning it, I haven't the foggiest. A .40 cal carbine shouldn't have much in the way of recoil. My 2 .40 cal pistols are only slightly "snappy" with the Walther PPS being more so, because of its smaller size, than my Sig P226. Beretta makes a good weapon so if this carbine follows suit, it's fine. As for accuracy, you'd have to go with what one of the reviewers said:

The gun is ambidextrious. However, I don't know how labor intensive it is to get it that way. Very accurate. Accepts the 96 pistol clips, in fact they are the same for both. A little space age looking, with a slower rate of fire when compared to an ar-15. But very reliable. I have heard, but not seen for myself, that the new cx4 magazines were only compatable with beretta's newist pistol model.
Any way - love the gun and found it reliabily accurate to about 75-100 yards.
