Beretta CX4 Storm Carbine 9mm 15 round w/Top Rail
by Robert K Date Added: Tuesday 09 February, 2010
Having a Model 92F from my LE days I wanted to pick up a carbine that would share magazines with that pistol. The Kel-Tec Sub2000 and CX4 fit the bill. Since it in nearly impossible to find a M92F mag Sub2000 nowadays, the CX4 was the default choice.

The carbine feels very good in the hand, shoulders well, and feeds perfectly, no matter what 9mm ammo I throw at it. Takes all of the Beretta 92F magazines that I own (factory 15s, mec-gar 15s, mec-gar 17s, beretta 20 rnd extended, etc.) with no issues. Good accuracy and fairly light weight. The only ergonomic thing that bothers me is the built in towers that house the iron sights. Rather have had a flat top with foldable AR sights, but the sight towers do co-witness with the Burris FastFireII red dot. They will NOT co-witness with an Eotech sight (I have both the 512 and XPS3). Additionally, the width of an Eotech sight makes it difficult to charge the weapon using the cocking handle. Your hand WILL hit the sight when operating the manual cocking lever, usually taking some skin in the process. My Aimpoint M3 clone (Primary Arms) works okay though.

The weapon does come with ONE picatinny rail rail. If you want the bottom and 2nd side rail, you'll have to purchase those separately, or as a kit. The slide out accessory rail is okay for a tactical light, but too wobbly for a laser painter IMHO.

The composite body does not bother me at all, however, some of the composite internals do give me pause for concern. I will be upgrading my CX4 with some SierraPapa steel replacement parts in the near future. It is, IMHO, a bit pricey for a pistol caliber carbine. The hi-point carbine can be had for MUCH less, and they are built like tanks, but if you are a M92 owner and want a pistol caliber carbine to share mags with, this is an excellent choice. Keep in mind, however, it is a accuracy multiplier, not a force multiplier. If you intent is such, pick up an M4gery instead.
