CX4 Storm: A Tactical Carbine with Pistol-Like Controls
The CX4 is a semiauto pistol-caliber carbine designed to give you the familiar controls of your favorite Beretta combat handgun.
It is perfect for shooters who are already familiar with Beretta tactical pistols, or more in general for those who may not have extensive experience with a rifle or carbine. However, the cold-hammer forged barrel delivers the sort of accuracy that even the most experienced shooters will appreciate. Easy to use, ultra-reliable and low-recoil, it has been adopted by several police agencies aross the US, while its versatility and accessorization options have made it a favorite of recreational shooters. Whether you use it for home-defense, varminting, competition or training, the CX4 will deliver what it promises.
Accepts Beretta Full-Size Pistol Magazines
The CX4 is adaptable to accept any full-size Beretta PX4, 90-series and 8000 series magazines (using optional adapters), thereby saving existing Beretta users the expense of additional magazines. Along with its uncompromising Beretta quality, this is an additional reason why the versatility of this carbine is highly prized by tactical shooters. Along with a Beretta pistol, it helps create the best and most versatile tactical system available today, as evidenced by the CX4’s dedicated following.
Extremely Versatile, Easy to Use
This light and compact carbine was designed to be completely and easily adaptable to the needs of most shooters. The operating handle, safety and magazine release are reversible and give you the opportunity to train or shoot right- or left-handed, while case ejection can also be switched from right to left. The length of pull is adjustable (one spacer included), making the CX4 easily and intuitively come up to the shoulder of most shooters. The aperture and post sights are user-adjustable, meaning that you can train with (or switch) your favorite brand of ammo without taking the carbine to a gunsmith. And after a day at the range, this carbine is a snap to take apart and reassemble, while its ultra-tough construction and surface treatment make it stand up to the hardest use.
The CX4 just begs to be accessorized. Between the front and rear sights, it features a full-length aluminum top rail for mounting optical and red dot sights. It also sports a retractable Picatinny rail that extends from the fore-end, which allows users to mount tactical lighting devices and other accessories. Additional rails can be mounted on the left, right and bottom, thereby providing ample opportunity for customization. Please visit our accessories page for a full list of CX4 accessories.

While the CX4 isn't going to win any target shooting contests, I found it quite accurate out of the box with the built in sights at 25-50 yards. It's also a lot of fun. Light and maneuverable, with light recoil. I've run various brands of 9mm through it and have yet to have a single problem. Take down and cleaning is easy. Being able to share magazines with my 92FS is a definite bonus, and having magazines in various sizes (15, 20, 30) is nice. I bought on a lark and I've been very pleasantly surprised with how much I've come to like it. I'm considering it for home defense - it will shoot HD rounds just fine, close in accuracy is great, it's relatively compact for a carbine, low recoil means getting back on target faster, with excellent reliability.

I’ll admit up front that I have been a Beretta fan since the first time I held a 90 Series pistol. They are “just right” for me. I have owned six Beretta firearms (so far) and they have all proven dependable. The CX4 Storm carbine is absolutely my favorite “long” gun EVER. Yes, the trigger pull could be better. But you’ll forgive it quickly, as you enjoy quickly toppling plates, soda cans, or whatever you’re shooting at. Mine is paired perfectly with a Trijicon reflex sight on a low mount, and a Streamlight mini weaponlight. Controls are intuitive, reversible, and robust. The weight and “feel” is nice and balanced. Five stars!
