Beretta made waves when it rolled out its new ARX100 at the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, and our editors were excited to get their hands on one. The rifle is equipped with a cold hammer forged barrel that can be removed and replaced with various lengths and calibers in a matter of seconds-the first two configurations available are 5.56 and .300 AAC Blackout.

The gun sports a constant contact piston system, allowing it to easily feed and fire, even under the most unforgiving conditions. Its lightweight, technopolymer receiver allows for reliable operation, with little lubricant.

Better yet, the ARX100 is completely ambidextrous. All of the firearm's critical controls can be adapted to suit a left-handed shooter-and a selector near the rear of the gun allows the user to switch between left or right spent casing ejection configurations.

You can learn more about the ARX100 in the video below, hosted by American Rifleman Editor in Chief Mark Keefe.
