Pistol-caliber carbines, like the Beretta CX4 Storm featured here, can offer some advantages over center-fire rifle models. The CX4 is a blowback-operated, self-loading carbine with a 16.6” barrel chambered for .40 S&W, and by design uses the company’s PX4 pistol magazines. The CX4 is an all polymer gun that weighs in at 5 lbs., 8 ozs. It also comes with adjustable sights and rail space for accessories.
