Beretta CX4 Storm JX49220M 9mm Luger

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The CX4 Storm offered great accuracy with one load, was light weight, and had excellent balance. The trigger was its weak spot, but we still shot some impressive groups. The magazine release button could be taller. We liked the peep sights. Overall, it was more difficult to manipulate the CX4 than the other carbines.

The magazine well is flared to aid magazine insertion.
Removable stock inserts allow the user to adjust the LOP.
Right-handed shooters will opt for the charging handle on the left side for better leverage when cocking the weapon.
The AR-F3 combines a FastFire 3 red dot with the AR-F3 mount. The mount’s wings protect the red dot and help avoid accidental button manipulation. It can also store a wrench and battery.
The CX4 is streamlined and sexy looking, but that was deceiving. The barreled action is housed in a polymer shell, so the CX4 is light in weight. Most of the controls can be set up for a right- or left-handed shooter.
We did not like the placement of the safety because we had to break our trigger-hand grip to manipulate it.
