Semi-automatic rifle Beretta ARX100

58



At the 142 meeting of the National Rifle Association, Beretta in Houston, Texas, presented the third generation Beretta ARX100 rifle to a wide range. This rifle is based on assault rifles and is designed for the United States market. Civilians are free to purchase Beretta ARX100 from August 2013. The Beretta ARX100, a semi-automatic rifle with automatic piston gas, is the civilian version of the Beretta ARX160 assault rifle.

In 2008, Beretta (Gardone Val Trompia, Italy), one of the oldest, largest and most famous manufacturers weapons, was released a new revolutionary platform assault rifle, which was called ARX-160. The basis of the rifle is a fully body made of polymeric materials, and automation, which is built on the outlet from the bore of the powder gases. The gas piston stroke is short. The ARX-160 assault rifle is quite robust and modular. Due to its qualities, the rifle was almost immediately adopted by the Italian armed forces to replace 70 / 90 rifles and carbines. This rifle has gained recognition and the world - several countries have purchased ARX-160 assault rifles for special forces and military units. In the United States, several law enforcement agencies have acquired this rifle. In addition, the ARX-160 rifle was offered for the program "Individual Carbine" by the American army.

Based on this system, two short-barreled modifications were developed. destination (ARX-160 PDW and ARX-160 SF), as well as the transition to caliber 7,62x39 millimeters. In 2012, for the first time, a civilian sports modification was demonstrated, having a chamber for a small caliber unitary cartridge of the caliber 5,6 mm. This modification was designed to meet the expectations of sports shooters, who have long wanted to get a "full-caliber" civilian version of the rifle.

At the 142 meeting of the National Rifle Association, Beretta finally satisfied this request. The North American subsidiary of Beretta USA, (headquarters of Accoquique, pc. Maryland) in August began to supply the ARX-100 rifle, which is a semi-automatic civilian version of the ARX-160 rifle. The ARX-100 semi-automatic rifle has a lot of changes aimed at sporting applications, but it still retains many of the main features of the original.




Rifle Beretta ARX100 equipped with everything you need and gives the user a system that is convenient in all respects. ARX-100 will use piston automatic rifle ARX-160, but modified in such a way as to exclude the possibility of switching to continuous fire mode, as well as the alteration back to a combat rifle. In addition, it will be incompatible with the specialized elements of ARX-160, allowing to fire in automatic mode.

The design of the rifle includes the upper and lower parts of the receiver, made of polymer, receiver pad and upper bar. The cover plate has a bar for installing three accessories. The monolithic Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 mounting plate makes it possible to install various optical and aiming equipment. The folding telescopic butt, which is a standard element of the rifle, allows you to conveniently transport weapons. Butt "reinforced" type is designed in such a way that it can be used as an emergency tool.

Semi-automatic rifle Beretta ARX100


Implemented ARX100 quick barrel replacement system. The barrel can be replaced with a cartridge: .300 Blackout or .223 / 5.56. To replace the barrel, press the pair of protrusions located on each side of the forearm, remove the barrel. Installing another barrel is made by inserting and pressing until it clicks. 16 or 20 inch trunks are available to the general public.

The mass of the rifle is relatively small and allows the shooter to be equally comfortable to fire with both hands. Magazine latch and fuse are located on both sides of the ARX100. The cocking handle can be mounted on the right or left side of the weapon at will.

According to experts, the Beretta ARX100 rifle is an easy, convenient and versatile platform that sets new standards for civilian rifles.

In the United States, the Beretta ARX100 semi-automatic rifle, currently, is available at a price of 1950 dollars. European shooters will only be able to buy an ARX100 rifle at the start of the 2014 of the year.

        So are they behind? AK has been in service for so long, due to its reliability, it was initially inferior to the M16 in accuracy and convenience, but its superiority was recognized by all. If you have to fight for a long time in conditions when normal cleaning of the machine is impossible, it is better to have the AK and not its more accurate and convenient competitors.

            AK is not Lada, weapons do not develop like cars. By the way, cars are now much worse than they were 20-30 years ago. Audi 80 and whether the Mercedes Yeshka of the late 80s is much more reliable than modern products of the same manufacturers. Now it is estimated that the car will last a maximum of 10 years, before being sent to the scrap, 20 years were laid in old models. It cannot be said that cars have become better in terms of handling, dynamics, comfort, safety, but a large number of electronic gadgets have appeared, and cars now resemble a smartphone.

      Already allowed (I wonder with the help of whom or what?). But the AK-12 is essentially the same AK (original). All its minuses (for all its pluses) were as they were. There are no changes (innovative) in the system. The corporation offers to buy from it what is already filled up with army warehouses, just slightly changing the appearance and sticking "-12" to the old name. In general, in their opinion, the Kalashnikov system is the final result of engineering thought that does not require improvement. It's a pity.

Not willing and that's it! By the way, I don’t want to either. If you, Mr. Pupyrchaty, do not burden excessively, lay out, as an argument for the discussion, the video of the trunk falling from the height of the second floor or documentary results of such tests, as well as effective shooting after this fatal error.

Or how long will it take to scrape off the dirt if this sample abounding in corners and holes accidentally falls into a tank track and can a warrior be able to fire from it?

    I think the quality of the plastic is excellent. I still use some of the things that the United States supplied for lend-lease during the Second World War. And I never cease to be amazed at the quality of assembly, processing and strength of steel - despite the fact that there was a war.

        The main thing is not form, but content. But there is such a question. If someone put the butt of AKM, it would not seem enough. Yes, and under the blow, say, a sapper blade can be substituted for a shield. And how will this plastic toy behave in such a situation, and how much later can it be used for its intended purpose, or at least repaired for not very expensive?

    An interesting weapon, but here's the question - the bolt handle is rearranged, and the direction of the cartridge case ejection? And what does it mean "to use the stock as an emergency tool" - in the face when it gets stuck? And here is plastic, all the same, our testers usually knock down everything where there is a lot of plastic, even at the stage of preliminary tests ... I don’t know. Well, and the dimensions - it’s too bulky ... But you can only seriously evaluate the weapon only holding on to him, or even better, shooting. Let's see how it gets accustomed to buyers. Especially among the troops.

    Probably, I am the first who saw this animal alive from all the highly respected members of the site. Yes indeed available in large US weapons stores. For example, in "Cabellas", where I got caught by accident. Yes, the thing is a little cumbersome but surprisingly light. Everything is plastic and it is very difficult to find iron elements in your hands (except for the barrel) the first time. But it sits very well, the stock is adjustable. It fits very quickly where it is needed, like a glove. The fact that it changes so quickly and so easily is an undeniable advantage. This is generally amazing. A small minus in my opinion is a kind of loudness, but it is compensated by light weight. Beretta really never ceases to amaze with new models and technologies for the introduction of modern plastics in hand-held firearms ... Yes, you can "hurray to the patriots" to shout that there is nothing better than a "Kalashnikov" on the planet earth, but weapons experts and experts hold a slightly different opinion. And the experience of conducting battles of modern small arms with Kalashnikov variants of all times, clearly showed the advantages of modern systems. The winner in a weapon duel is the one who is ahead of the enemy's shot by a split second. And in order to get ahead, it is necessary to make the weapon convenient and light with the obligatory already special optical adaptations (such as Red Dot or AKOG). There is no other way of developing small arms of this type. I think that even a not very knowledgeable person in the arms business is clear that the Russian arms industry is lagging behind, very, very significantly. A reason to think about it.

    ...... you, honorable Trasser, tell the Afghan mujahideen who are fighting the amerovski soldiers with the good old Kalashnikovs, as far as I am aware M-16 and M-4 are not very common with them. And for some reason, proud American soldiers, armed with the most modern small arms, have not achieved much success in outstripping the shots of the Taliban fighters, and are not very eager to leave the perimeter of their fortified bases, but prefer to bomb from a height. so where, then, is the overwhelming superiority of the most modern small arms with the sights you mentioned. And in my opinion, a lot depends on the person. I once saw the notorious "Boer" in Afghanistan, and just as a Pashtun-shepherd shoots from it, it seems that the rifle was produced in the 1870s, and I would not have dared to come across it in the 21st century ... ... so, as always, "maybe all the same with eggs in your pants" from the beginning you will figure it out ...

You are not on this site explicitly. The Majokheds are fighting not because they have a choice of modern small arms, but because they do not. And besides the Chinese Kalashnikovs, there is also nothing and a PC and the entire former Soviet rifle arsenal. Judging by your knowledge in shooting, you still tell me about the "Bullet with a displaced center of gravity" in the new "Kalash". "Will go into the chest and come out in the leg."

        During the Afghan War (1979-1989), it was widely used by Afghan Mujahideen in the armed struggle against OKSVA. Among the Soviet soldiers was called - the English rifle "BUR".

        .... and about your GREAT shooting knowledge - from your post, well, I just can't judge them, where is the opinion of a specialist about the characteristics that affect the accuracy and stability of shooting, where is the analysis of the successful decision of the constructors about the trigger or bolt group, nothing of this I did not see in your "specialist" reasoning, but I saw only the opinion of the "designer", light, comfortable in the hands, a lot of plastic, everything is so modern, pretentious ...
        ... by the way, I don’t whack the barrel itself at all, nothing is said about it in my post, it’s possible that it’s a very good thing, I don’t know, because I don’t write ...
        but your comment about the unambiguous advantage of your modern systems, I don’t completely agree with him, don’t need AK to fail, it’s a bit from another opera. And you drove through it again, although there wasn’t a word about him in the article, you'd better discuss this rifle, but you’ll see it sweep, well, not a post without cooling the AK, that it’s very annoying to you that you won’t see us .... we are all Now they’re not scary anymore, don’t be afraid, just don’t forget Bismarck, he was a great dude, and most importantly perspicacious .......

          No one cries out for AK - it's just that his time has passed, like the attack aircraft "IL2" and PPSh, and the T34 - at one time there were still things, but now they are outdated. That's all. And old things can be adopted either because of lobbyism of the manufacturer (which has already established production), or poverty.

          Dear, and who is really fond of the AK family? I posted a post on the topic of the new weapon seen in contrast to you with my own eyes. In your knowledge of Lee Anfield is simply shocked. But now is not about that. It seems to me (sorry for the politeness) that you do not understand a little about the arrival of the discussion. It's not about the body kits (although they are too). And the point is the new design provides a faster and more accurate shot that's all. If you do not understand the subject of the discussion, do not climb with a "pig's snout in the Kalashny row". What do you think the Americans leave scared of madzhoheds with rusty Chinese Kalash? Things like politics and economics (I keep silent about geopolitics) are probably not entirely familiar to you. Learn nothing and read. And your comments will be relevant and interesting to everyone. As for my competence .. I have been involved in shooting sports (rifle) for 27 years. And in the army he was a sniper and a machine gunner ... And there are awards for the homeland. My experience allows me to draw conclusions, unlike probably from yours. And wind up on your mustache, if respected site members speak politely to you, this does not mean that you can be rude. And in the army, I think I would have talked to you differently for rudeness.

            ...... and why are you so "dear" excited, I am in my posts, only on you and no other way where you considered rudeness ...... why do you not like my knowledge about Lee Anfield, although I I don't know a damn about her, I saw it with my eyes, but I didn't even hold it in my hands, so I didn't say that ...
            .... I don’t deny the presence of modern weapons, I don’t deny this, there is also good ...... about the "pig's snout" and about the new design in more detail please, this is what I for some reason did not see in the posts " such a deeply knowledgeable "specialist, or maybe I did not consider something from my" Kalash "series ...
            ... about leaving Afghanistan, the point is not in geopolitics, the point is in the results, but you have no result ....... well, or then, arguing in your opinion, the Soviet Union also left Afghanistan for "geopolitical" reasons! !!!
            ..... such things as politics and economics are not known, and what the hell should I know about them, because there is an "American uncle" who will explain all politics to us and calculate the economy, everything is only for our good, because he sleeps and dreams, as it were so to make our life better, insomnia torments him, but he suffers and worries for all of us ...
            ..... you have been practicing sports for 27 years, and you have the flag in your hands, success at the shooting range and at competitions ..........
            ...... they served the Motherland, well, it’s also worthy of respect, just explain how the snipers were re-classified from a machine gunner, we didn’t practice this, the tactics are completely different, and the sniper has such a lot of professional little things that they preferred to learn immediately and not then transfer from other posts .......
            .... I don’t have the awards of my beloved Motherland, only three badges for participating, well, I don’t love her (Motherland) for that and bite anyone’s throat for it ...... with my teeth even if my hands don’t act ... .
            ..... yes, with experience I’m shitty, you’ll have something more, I have only 8 years under the contract, all the time in the positions of junior commanders, I was not attending courses of promotion and study, I ran all over the mountains with a gun and the weights of the "beloved Motherland, and of all there are only five" minor "conflicts on the territory of the CIS, and two" minor "troubles in the Chechen Republic, where can I get to you ...
            .... and in the army we wouldn’t say otherwise, I would never go to serve in the US Army. And in general it’s not funny on an Internet to pound in the chest with your fist, it’s not children like, otherwise I would, if only .... !!!! .... I’m saying children !!! laughing
            ..... on the site I’m writing not to make my comments interesting to someone but to express my opinion, but whether it is interesting or not is not for me to decide and not for you .....
            ...... and about rudeness, you do not confuse Russian proverbs with rudeness, well, or look into Ozhegov’s dictionary to increase knowledge .....
            ... no mustache, my woman does not love them ....... laughing

      Afghan Mujahideen have no lave to pay 2 pieces of green per barrel. For two pieces they will buy 10 self-made AKs (almost ten) and arm 8 people of martyrs.

        ..... not well, the Afghani do not, and there are "stupid suicide bombers", but how are the Syrian "revolutionaries, fighters for the ideals of Western democracy", they are supplied there by all of Europe and Pindosia, and even American instructors teach in Jordan, now is the time to prove that it is the super-duper Western weapon that helps to defeat the "Assad dictatorship", why not show the "absolute superiority" of modern systems over the notorious AK, because it seems that this is exactly what "friends suppliers "and are interested, but for some reason the Syrian opposition is fighting in the majority with AK in its hands, and there, by the way, there are a lot of professionals, and not some kind of duped suicide bombers. so they understand weapons, read the last 10-15 years they have been fighting ...

    Not being a complete specialist in the field of firearms, nevertheless - a suna and its three pennies. The sample under discussion, due to the mass of hung gadgets, will certainly not work reliably in mud and other difficult operating conditions. So, sissy, shoot at the shooting range ... Is it the case of AKM, AKMS!

    Such a butt should have stood on the AK-74 for a long time, is it really not obvious? Kalash with its reliability in terms of convenience is not ice.

      Something everyone says - not ice, outdated,. And specifically what is wrong with the AK? I understood everything: the mechanic and the AK should be placed in a stylish futuristic plastic case, stick with picatinny rails on all sides, change the design of the muzzle brake-compensator, change the name to, for example, "Giperbaloid 2020", hold a global PR-action, after which snotty , pimply youths, will change their "authoritative" opinion and will no longer scold AK, but on the contrary, maybe they will praise a little, a drop, although this will already be a real fantasy.

    how many years has there been a conversation about rearmament of the army (new machine)
    And nothing has changed
    replacing one body with another did not lead to anything (Serdyukov to Shoigu)

    Excuse me, what kind of body are you yourself? It is not too small for such statements, and even in such a tone that, they say, the "celestial" deigned the "rabble" to open his eyes to what was happening. Don't be ridiculous, clown.

    Here are gentlemen, I bring a photo of a live "beast". True, in 5,56 caliber, it was not already (for example, they were yesterday). Remained a small-bore (22LR) version for the civilian market. But exactly the same except for the caliber and the possibility of replacing the barrel. The description "by touch" was given a little higher. I highly appreciate the workmanship .... Super. By the way, I played the Bulgarian AK clone in caliber 7.62 / 39 .. very good quality. Unlike the Romanian remake ... The quality is awesome. I didn't even want to pick it up. This is a separate topic for a separate article.

    Well, what's so outstanding about this rifle? A beautiful plastic body kit and nothing more. Well, accuracy can still. Although I would like to look at its accuracy after a day of operation in Afghanistan. Take a look at the plastic and clean the mechanics from sand. But I’ll love it. Although for use in Europe, or America, maybe it will.

    The Majoheds are fighting not because they have a choice of modern small arms, but because they do not. And apart from the Kalashnikovs of China, there is nothing either the PC and the entire former Soviet rifle arsenal.


    ...... how so, not order, why not, why did the US supply its allies from 1980 to 1989 with obsolete weapons, why did not provide the "great fighters for the freedom of Afghanistan from the Soviet threat" with the opportunity to "get ahead of the shot", because then the victory of the "democratic forces" would come faster and more obvious !!!!!! This is a betrayal of the interests of all "democratic" humanity, urgently to conduct an investigation, hearings in Congress and on the scaffold of the guilty !!!!
    .... here you are with your reasoning and got caught, I didn’t argue that AK is more accurate or not, I said that you just need to be able to shoot. You say that they don’t have a choice of weapons, and thank God or Allah for that I don’t know there, but if you had a choice, and with your modern bells and whistles, they wouldn’t be your nose for the base territory, you would the bases would creep along, well, or through the underground galleries. So when you build a gun that will be ahead of the Taliban with Kalash, then you’ll try and argue with us (SA), because we drove spirits with Kalash in the SA and you can’t with ARX, so you still have to grow and growth, children .......

    You can only praise for its unpretentiousness, because of the accuracy of the SCS, it will be thrust into the belt, and you think that I bake current about the appearance.

    accuracy, prettiness .... Mr. but something else !!!! nothing new! if you wrap the old candy in a new piece of paper, it will not become new! to increase the culture of AK production, to work with ergonomics (and this, in principle, has already been worked out) and it will be ahead for a long time!

    Prettiness should not be at the expense of reliability. Pontovye things look beautiful, but when it comes to application, then everything climbs everything unsightly.
