    Beretta CX4 Storm - Awesome 9mm Companion to the 92FS

    I recently purchased the Beretta CX4 Storm in 9MM. What a fun carbine. I love the fact that it uses the same clip as my 92FS and both can take mags up to 30rds interchangably.

    They made this thing fun to shoot, easy to accessorize and upgrade, and way easy to breakdown and clean. One of my favorites in my collection these days.

    Anyone else have one?

    I've had one for a few years and I've never fired it!

    Nice toy, I should try it out one of these days!

    I bought one last fall, and do NOT consider it a "toy".

    I can consistantly shoot 6 inch groups POA standing at 50 yards, and 4 inch groups POA rested at 100 yards. It's a small, compact package that can easily turn corners in close quarters if necessary.

    I'm a happy "Storm Trooper

    Yep, easier for the troops to carry and use.
    I like the CX4, maybe one day I'll get one.

    How does this compare to the Hi point carbine. The appear to be similar but the price difference is significant.
    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    I have shot the Hi-Point and it is another fun package but IMHO it is not a close comparison. I am not bashing Hi-Point by any means. I think they make a great gun for the money. I am sure I will add on to my collection when funding improves.

    The Beretta was originally designed for para-military and law enforcement CQC use. It is a serious carbine with a fantastic design. It was designed and developed using top-of the line materials and tested for extreme use. I get great results at the range and to my amazement, it has NEVER jammed.

    Beretta did it right mechanically. I think the futuristic look can be a bit of a turn-off to traditionalists but ergonomaically, it's almost perfect. Easy to aim and hold on target. Aquisition is as fast or faster than alot of AR / AK packages too because it is so compact.

    That being said, I don't think it was very well received by LE when it was first marketed because of it's sci-fi appearance. I only know of a few LE agencies that have adopted them. It reminds me of a Planet of the Apes gun LOL

    It has found a nice niche in the private market for a great home defense gun. Our local range has a tactical range (Not open yet, still under construction) and the CX4 and 92FS combo will be excellent in that arena.

    i've got the storm in .40. it shoots well and easy to take care of. the hi-point is fun and nice for the money, but doesn't really compare.

    I have a CX4 that is a companion

    to my PX4 Storm 9mm. Really a good looking gun and fun to shoot. I purchased mine about 7 months ago and it has performed flawlessly. Common magazines for CX and PX is great, but I have added a couple of 20 round extend mags for the CX.

    I was at the range with a friend Firday shooting my SKS and new M&P, and he rented one of these in 9MM. It had a red dot scope on it. It was some of the craziest fun ive had at the range, shooting that thing. I tried it right handed, then tried it left handed since im left eye dominant, and shoot rifles that way. Right handed I got a 8 inch group at 50 feet. left handed I got a 2 inch group at 50 feet. That thing is awesome, id buy it right now if I had the extra cash.

    A guy up here bored out a 9mm barrel, installed a .40cal bolt and has a 357Sig Storm. It beats back a fair bit so I suggested a progressive spring and/or a buffer.
