    Beretta ARX100 Priced lower then the SCAR

    Looks like Beretta is wanting to grab some of the market.

    Interesting. Lets see how they work, still a fan of more options / weapon systems, although the 16/17 combo works great for me...

    I'm with NMB2. It's just too damned ugly. Bleh.

    With it's polymer parts, short-stroke gas piston, folding stock, and reciprocating bolt handle it is a knockoff of the FN SCAR 100%...can't blame them really for wanting to grab their market share for a lower price. Reminds me of the 1911 pistol and every other pistol that has come after that mimics it. While there are some great options in the marketplace (HK, Glock, M&P, XD, etc) they are in my opinion still knockoffs of the original Browning designed 1911. The greatest form of flattery is imitation!

    With this being said, I am a Beretta fan when it comes to shotguns (my A400 Xtrema), but not rifles or pistols. Because of the military I've shot the M9 quite a few times and each time I am less impressed.

    Unless they have the bbl. link and dustcover (slide) locking system of John Browing it's not a 1911 type handgun. So the Glock and XD are not an imitation of his design.

    This was an interesting possible future option until about 30 seconds after the first Tavors shipped.

    I think I held one of these the other night. It was a beretta that looked just like it. Guy at the gun counter handed it to me to look at. I didn't like it. It didn't feel right.

    I'm not ready to dismiss the ARX 100 yet, but nothing in the review or the Beretta video really draws me to it. Like others have said, it is rather ugly. While that is not only subjective but not a great measure of a firearm, aesthetics are pretty important for first impressions. Someone else compared its profile to a pregnant guppy, and that may not be too far off.

    I can get over the awkward look if it offers something new and exciting. Otherwise, I'm happy with my SCAR 16 and AR.
