Beretta’s ARX 160

Sometimes a gun company hits a home run, and this might turn out to be one of those times. The ARX-160 is as hard to obtain as it is good looking. Beretta, in my personal opinion, usually releases aesthetically pleasing firearms. The Beretta 92 has some shortcomings, but it is still a very accurate, usable, and beautiful handgun. Given their reputation, it was no surprise to us that the ARX-160 came out looking amazing. Beretta recently released information on the .22 LR rimfire version of the rifle, which the designers intended for training purposes. Both rifles will soon be available in the United States for the consumer market, and that is news that we were glad to hear.
