Beretta CX4 Storm
The Beretta CX4 Storm is a realistic-looking semi-auto airgun that provides fast-action shooting from its 30-round clip. In .177 caliber, you can hose down a soft drink can, turning it into a mass of mangled metal in near-record time. The fun factor of this gun is definitely on the upside, and the 88 gram CO2 AirSource cartridge allows several clips through the gun before needing to replenish your power source. Over 200 shots are available from each cartridge, and the example I had gave well over 200 shots, just as the manufacturer claimed.
Take a look at the clip this gun comes with.....30 rounds! Lots of shooting from one clip.....an excellent can mangler if there ever was one.
Just load up the clip, and insert it back into the pistol grip of the gun, pull back the cocking lever, and you are ready to shoot!
The safety is intuitive, with red warning labels on the side that is visible when the gun is in the "fire" mode.
The cocking handle is on the right side of the gun. Pull it back, and the gun is cocked and ready to shoot. The handle doesn't actually move back and forth during the shooting process, but the blowback action is taking place on the inside of the gun, rotating the magazine and inserting another pellet into the barrel for firing.
Complete with a nice hard-plastic case, the gun is ready to throw into the trunk for some fun shooting on trips. The case provides good protection and will help keep dust out of the gun works during storage.
I tried several different kinds of pellets in the magazine. All fired without any problem, though you need to be sure to seat each pellet securely in the magazine so that the rotating action doesn't get jammed from an errant skirt or pellet head sticking out of the magazine clip.
The gun is on the small side for adult shooters, and should be comfortable for younger shooters and those of smaller stature. The length of pull lends itself to the smaller shooter, though it isn't a problem for larger shooters. The accuracy is okay for this type of semi-auto fun gun.
There are several accessories available for the CX4, and you can order them in order to deck out your gun the way you'd like it to appear. You'll find the list of accessories listed in the manual as you see here:
