For three days only Cheaper Than Dirt! is significantly dropping the price on this particular model Beretta ARX160 .22 Long Rifle pistol. One of our distributors is closing out its ARX160 inventory meaning you can save money big time! Less than $300 for a Beretta? Yes, please! Rather than something you have been considering for a while, or an impulse buy, the Beretta ARX160 pistol is by far the best choice for tactical-style .22 LR pistols. You have to act fast though, only one part number’s price is dropping, and the sale won’t last long. Buy from May 27 to 29, 2014 for this very special deal.
The real pew! pew!—the absolutely drool-worthy Beretta ARX100 in 5.56—is extremely rare and at a premium price. While we wait for supply to equal demand and market price to even out, those of us who have been having wet dreams since shooting the ARX100 at SHOT Show 2014 are somewhat sedated by Beretta’s rimfire versions. No need to sit and twiddle our thumbs for the battle-proven rifle, we can still have fun with Beretta’s SBR fake-out ARX160 pistol in .22 Long Rifle.
The pistol has all the exact features of the rimfire rifle, without the stock and half the barrel length, including fully ambidextrous operation—one of our favorite features of the rifle. Beretta’s ARX160 is a true 100% ambidextrous rifle—right down to a quick and easy switchable charging handle and shell deflector. Southpaws rejoice! In place of the stock, Beretta placed a hinged butt cap with a sling attachment on the back of the pistol. Instead of an 18-inch barrel—like on the rifle—the pistol’s barrel is 8.5 inches—and still able to reach bullseye accuracy at 25 yards.
Also identical on the pistol are the flip-up tactical sights that lock up while shooting and down for storage. A numbered rail is just screaming for a multicolored dot sight.
The way the pistol grips is fantastically ergonomic, your thumb intuitively rests on the safety switch—located on both sides of the pistol—for easy flipping from safe to fire while keeping a positive grip on the pistol and keeping dead on target.
Though the ARX160 may look like it ate a few too many donuts, there is no real heft to this mostly polymer pistol. It weighs about five pounds. Included is a 20-round plastic magazine, but five, 10 and 30 rounders are available.
Many people ask, “What’s the point of .22 LR tactical-rifle style pistols?” Well, sometimes there isn’t a point to why we purchase firearms, is there? Because “why not” or maybe just a plain and simple “do want.” It doesn’t matter really the point or the reason; the Beretta ARX160 pistol is a smooth shooter, compact and reliable with virtually no recoil. It is easier to carry and store than the rifle. The Beretta ARX160 .22 Long Rifle pistol isn’t only a trainer, but also fun for the kids and makes a great range toy. I foresee many aluminum cans being destroyed and steel plates plinked in your future.
