Beretta CX4 Storm

The Beretta CX4 Storm is one of the most futuristic looking weapons and has even been used on science fiction series, like Stargate Universe, in unaltered form.

The Beretta CX4 Storm is a modern carbine design released in 2003.  Like several modern Beretta designs, it is styled by a famous Italian car designer Guigiaro.  The Storm is a family of carbines available in models that utilize the magazines of the Beretta 92 series (9mm), PX4 (9mm), 96 series (.40” S&W), PX4 Storm (.40” S&W), Cougar (.45” ACP) and Italian 92 (9x21mm) pistols.  Due to the magazine interchangeability, magazines of up to 30 rounds for the 92 series guns are widely available.  All Storms utilize a blowback action and are accurate and easy to handle carbines.

The stocks for all versions have synthetic furniture with the ability to lengthen pull via stock spacers.  The stock also has two sling swivels and a sling bar on each side of the rear stock.  Mil1913 rail options abound on the Storm including: a retractable rail under the barrel, mounts for on either side of the front and the ability to install a rail on the top of the stock.  It is also possible to configure the gun for left or right hand bolt retraction, ejection, and magazine releasing. There are also two standard peep sights and the ability to completely fold them out of the way if an optic is mounted.    In short the Storm is a thoroughly modern carbine design with a multitude of options.
