The Beretta Storm family was launched in 2003 with the Cx4 pistol-caliber carbine. Today’s shooter demands a gun that can accept a large assortment of accessories, and the Cx4 meets the challenge. A retractable Picatinny rail extends from the fore-end for mounting tactical lights. Picatinny rails can be mounted on either side (one side rail is included) and the bottom of the fore-end for lasers or forward grips. A full-length aluminum top rail is included for mounting optics. The Cx4 Storm features a unique design allowing the user to reverse ejection and extraction with no special tools or additional parts. Combined with the reversible safety and magazine buttons, this makes the Cx4 the ideal solution for left-handed shooters. The Cx4 accepts the Beretta family of pistol magazines in various capacities, from the 20-round mags of the 92 and Px4 pistols to the 17-rounders of the .40-caliber Px4.
