    probably the wrong forum, but can anyone tell me about the Beretta .45 acp Carbine (assualt-looking) model? I know, I know, that's not the real name, but tell me about it anyway....any experiences?
    thanks

    The Beretta CX4 Storm ........comes in 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 Acp.

    Well built polymer carbine .....with all the bugs finally worked out. Great shooting liitle carbine for the home. Women find it handles easily, especially with a small forend verticle grip. The carbine is a natural pointer.

    The only drawback I can find with this model is the lack of high capacity magazines ......don't know why Beretta resisted offering higher capacity than 8 rounds for the 45 acp model. Just makes the whole carbine thing a misnomer .........and no better than carrying a 45 acp pistol.

    CX-4 Storm.

    I fired one in 9mm before the .45ACP version was available. It's a sweet shooting little toy.............great at the 50yd plinking range, shooting clays, cups, etc.

    I'd love to get me one in .45 myself.

    It uses the same magazines as some of the Beretta pistols and has lots of add-on possiblities and the ejection port can even be switched over so Southpaws can play without brass flying in their face.

    BTW..................for any SCI-FI fans out there................................the new Battlestar Galactica series has been using them for their troop rifles.

    do y'all reckon $700 is a fair price? the only competition I know of is the "Tommy Gun" from A-O for $900......

    I've got one in .45 and I'll second the lack of high-cap mags as being a big oversight by Beretta.

    However, every time I shoot the thing I have a big grin on my face, even when constantly changing mags.:D

    my dad has one in 9mm which i think is a great choice for ammo prices as well as higher cap mags. i love it it is really fun to shoot and reliable, the trigger is tuff but other than that it is a great design and well made. there are many upgrades and acessories out there for it too.

    I have one in 9mm. Honestly, my feelings about it are ho-hum. That heavy-@$$ bolt slamming back and forth is kind of obnoxious, and if you have facial hair, be ready for the cheek pad to rip some out. It does point well and accuracy is good, but I'd probably get rid of mine if it weren't likely to be on a future ban list. I'll keep it for that reason only, unless I am offered a trade for something I see more use in.

    If anyone has an Oly arms 10mm carbine they want to get rid of, we can talk...................

    Moving to Rifles

    I'll be back in a few minutes and move this over to Rifle Country.

    Just a heads-up.

    Well, I just bought one - Beretta raised the prices. A year ago, I could have gotten a 9mm one new for $525. I wanted one this month - and I looked all over online. New, U could get old stock 40 cal ones for $625 still. But in 9mm, I couldn't find anything that cheap. Around $650 was the cheapest I could find, and thatw as with no rail.

    I got mine for $678 last week, and it came with the top optic ail already installed. I figured that by the time i bought the rail seperate, it would have costed me more. So, that was a pretty good deal.

    I looked at the 45 cal one, and if the mags held more than 8 rounds, I may have gotten that one instead...

    I got mine in .40 with the top rail thrown in for 600 out the door at the yracuse gun show a few years ago. its a fun plinker out to 50 yards like others have said, still waiting for the CONEX to how up with the last of our gear from Iraq so I can put my grip pod on it. every woman that I've let shoot it has enjoyed it including my mom. the Ex was scary acurate with it too.

    They're very ergonomic (the gun just feels great to carry and shoulder) and fun to shoot, although they do tug at facial hair. They are very accurate and easy to hit with, with an eotech mounted.

    I got the 9mm for the 20 rounders and cheaper ammo. The .45's don't hold many rounds and the mags were much more expensive than the 92f mags. Got mine for $525 a year ago, $625 is the cheapest I've seen lately.
