    OMG, Does the Beretta Storm contain Plastic parts with in them???? What is the longevity of this carbine???? I was really thinking about getting one until I discovered that they have plastic parts in them.

    How well do they function???

    How accurate are they considering the parts?????

    Are they worth the $600-$750 price tag they command????

    Calm down, man. Many of the weapons purchased today have plastic parts in them. Heck, many have recievers made out of polymer.

    If you are willing to pay it. They do work, however. I have not seen any problems with reliability.

    If you won't pay the price, you can get a Hi-Point carbine and put the ATI stock on it and get a Beretta look-alike.

    I guess you have never seen a Steyr AUG, have you?

    The AUG, which has been out on the market for 20+ years, has a fire control group (trigger assembly) that's entirely polymer (plastic) save the springs and pins. I have heard of no issues with AUG durability, and they have plenty of military customers, where lots of rifles are in use, and chances for problems to creep up are great.

    Plastic parts are NOT, per se, bad.
