Beretta ARX Platform

Why did it never take off in the US Civilian market? It seems like an effective rifle for an affordable price point.

    >affordable price point
    Like it or not, nothing can compete with $400 PSA and M&P ARs. Nothing else will ever take off because anything that's more expensive is a novelty to the average gun owner.

            Beretta is shifting production to the NARP platform, Italy will probably adopt it as the new service rifle.

              doubt.jpeg. I'm kinda in the knows in this sector here in italy, unless their narp program somehow becomes an international success you will not see adoption for regular grunts any time soon as the previous procurement of the arx is still contractually bound. as of now the narp has been only given to some SOF groups here in italy and 3 other EU countries for evaluation and actual fielding only in 2.

                Are you able to tell us what those countries are? Or will the italians throw you at sea with cement shoes if you did that?

                Not the guy you replied to but I'd be surprised if the Albanian SOF didn't at least test it. they seem to buy literally anything that Beretta makes.
                Albania is not in the EU tho, so I might be wrong

                I'd rather not to be safe and not breach NDA as I don't know how many companies know about this. I don't want to risk a "it was one of your employee who divulged this and that cause we only told you"
                Still, I think it will become public knowledge from BDT or the B holding in 2025 or something. At least that was the timeline for other unrelated but similar projects.

                Being in the EU has no relation to Beretta giving you a product for testing unless they already had a procurement contract for more than 2 EU countries. In that case they need permission.

                I'll clarify that fielding does not mean they adopted the rifle. Fielding here just means they aren't relegating the rifle to a shooting bench.

    the lack of aftermarket and parts compatibility is a non factor for military rifles (the intent of the design) since in huge contracts spare parts are included and guaranteed through the logistics chain. For the civilian it's a deal breaker since people like to customize their guns for their purposes and tastes and being able to drive to the gun store when they lose a part is an major advantage.

    Met the same fate as all the other non AR euro platforms. Too expensive for the average user and not enough aftermarket parts for the gun autist. The gun is extremely underrated though and fun to shoot. Saw one at my local gunstore for 900 thinking about picking it up.

    if you made it the featured rifle in the next transformers movie alongside a plastic shitbox chevy(assembled in canada by turdies using chinese made parts) and a frumpy blonde with big milkers and lots of makeup you might get some traction, maybe throw in a few superbowl ads, and then give it to the dozen guntubers who all shill for the same parent company and now you're really making waves

      And because of youtubers. You also have to consider that only 3 years ago about 70% of current gun owners reached the age where they could legally own one. If ARX came out today it'd sell like hotcakes after every big guntubed made videos about it.

        Delusional, its just a 5.56 gun, its not that interesting or cool and it has heavy competition from a sea of ARs, and every other Euro gun coming out like Polish Grot, Aug, VHS, etc.

      Yes. I like mine and that's a steal for that rifle. If nothing else it'll be a good investment since Beretta doesn't seem to be exporting them anymore.

    Not when it first arrived on the market. It was late in their run to when they stopped importing them that they were actually a great deal, but of course that could only go on for so long.
    Also bad triggers are a common complaint I've heard of, and personally the LOP even with the stock fully extended is just a bit too low to be comfortable.

    It wasn't on the US market at an affordable price point until they put them on clearance because they weren't selling.

    Most consumers are not willing to spend $1600+ on a plastic AR18 derivative that costs less to make than an AR15.

    For $1600 just get a Bren 2. You’ll need to put about $300 into it to get the aftermarket rail and the KNS gas regulator but it’s worth it. Now, for under a grand? Absolutely buy it, why the fug not?
