Beretta CX4 Storm

Anyone has experience with one ? How does Cx4 Storm compares to other 9mm carbines ?

Last year I was contemplating getting a CX4, so I rented one at a local indoor range:



Here is a link to my short review of it:

https://forums.1911forum.com/showthr...ight=cx4+storm

Overall I liked it, although it wasn't the perfect long gun for me. It was very handy and easy to shoot but the ergonomics were clumsy and took a lot of getting used to. If I ever find one for a really good price I might pick it up, but right now it's kinda low on my bucket list of guns to buy.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I have had one for several years.

dsk gave a pretty good assessment of it IMO. Overall I like it as a platform, a great house gun for someone of small stature. I actually thought that while they take getting used to, the ergonomics were pretty good. The sights definitely suck though. An Eotech or Aimpoint will fix that. My big mistake was getting mine in .45 acp. This being a mistake for two reasons. I can only get eight round magazines for it. And the .45 acp round does not really gain much from a carbine length barrel.

Nine millimeter or .40 S&W is the way to go for this gun as you can get +/- thirty round magazines for it then, and the nine millimeter round in particular really can benefit from the carbine length barrel. If I had done this mine would likely see the light of day more often. Nice for a vehicle as well.

What about optical sight? What are some good options for CX4?

The recoil is virtually nil so pretty much any optic will work, even a low-end cheapie like the one I put on the rental I fired. Anything but those horrible OEM sights!

Picked this one up a couple years ago on a whim.

Very accurate, reliable and fun to shoot.
