    Does anyone know much about this CX4 Carbine that Beretta is now producing? Will it accept 92 series mags?

    There's a blurb about it in the new American Rifleman magazine. I didn't see anything on their website yet.
    Based on the picture in A.R., could it be any uglier??? :what:

    I doubt it would be able to take the mags from a 92 since in order to be imported it would be made so that it couldn't accept magazines that held more than 10 rounds. If it did, I'd doubt we'd see it here (especially here in CA) :fire:

    According to what I read on berettaforum, the ATF made an exception and they can import the CX4? Either that or they'll be making them here.

    Some other pics on a thread somewhere in the rifle forum.

    I'm gonna get one when I leave this rathole!

    Don't know if I'd prefer one over a M4 clone or not. I might add it to my list after I get a coupla other guns, like that Garand that I've been telling myself that I want to for about three years now.

    It takes 92 mags

    The STORM is set up to take existing BERETTA handgun mags. The 9mm is confirmed to take BERETTA 92 mags.:cool:

    Why would I want a rifle sized firearm that fires pistol rounds?

    Considering how many such firearms exist, and have existed since cartridge rifles were developed, a lot of people must want them.
    The question in my mind is, "Why would I want a firearm that looks like a prop from a bad scifi movie?"

    while cheap @ $623 or so..........I have decided aginst. A strange and sudden wave of practicality has come over me! It would have been a 'just because' type of purchase (and I have one of those in the driveway!). Upon some pondering, the CX-4 while very cool (I have seen them on Italian cops), will vastly under perform compared to my GI Carbine.

    I'll finally buy the .357 & .44Mag reloading set-up I've been putting off for years instead!

    Looks pretty cool to me.. Might think about it after i finally get that AR & Bolter. But then again, a USP 9mm may raise its ugly, yet functional, head.

    Very true. I still would like somebody to explain why a person would want one. Clearly some people do, but I don’t really grasp the whyso...

    .........well if one owned a 92, perhaps the concept of a rifle taking the same mags might appeal.

    The MP5 in various pistol callibers seems to be mildly popular with the Police and Spec Ops forces of the world.

    So ya think this rifle is modern? Humph. Does it have a coffee grinder in the stock? I think not! :D

    ahenry- I completely agree.

    Because it takes the same mags, shoulder weapon with low recoil. A good training arm.

    It may not have a coffee grinder in the stock, but I'm sure that you could use the stock to smash up some beans! They call that Yankee ingenuity

    I like the way it looks but will vote with my dollars for a Kel-Tec Su-16 or an AK-74 variant.

    The Kel-Tec does have features that I like more.. Folding, bipod (though it kind of looks sketchy) mag in stock.. We'll see how it plays out. If i win the lotto between now and then, ill get them both. :D

    An MP5 is approx. 27 inches long with an 9 inch barrel and the Cx4 Storm is approx. 30 inches long with a 16 inch barrel. The Cx4 does a much better job of getting in a much longer barrel in only a slightly longer weapon. However, firearms like the MP5 PDW, MP5K and SP89 all do/did a far better job of staying small thereby taking advantage of the small pistol caliber. If I’m not mistaken once the folding stock was added to the MP5K it became more popular than the MP5 with the “police and spec Ops forces of the world†as well.

    Fair enough. I have purchased more than a few things based on that criteria, I just like to make sure I know what my criteria is...

    If God, or anyone else, offered me a Cx4 or MP5, I wouldnt hesitate on going for the MP5. I saw an MP5-PDW for sale for $4300 at a gunshow once, dont know if thats high or low or what. Whats the Cx4 going for? About $600? Thats more in my price range.
