Beretta ARX 160 Review

In this part of my Beretta ARX 160 review, I show the components that came in the box along with documenting the "as received" condition of the firearm.  The Beretta ARX 160 Carbine came boxed as shown below.

The end of the box had stickers showing the information below.  I think the top sticker may have been one applied by and the sticker under the clear tape by Beretta.  You can ignore the 18.5" markings on the top label because they are incorrect.  The barrel length per the Beretta website is 18".

  • Model Code: JXR21800
  • Model Name: Beretta ARX 160 Carbine

These next photos document the "as received" condition of the ARX 160 Carbine (rifle).  It came in great condition just like you would expect for a new rifle.  Clicking on these photos or typically any others in my reviews will bring up a high resolution photo allowing you to study some of the details yourself.

First Impressions

Like many firearms that have a non-traditional look, I thought the Beretta ARX 160 Carbine looked great.  I was impressed with the build quality of this rifle for what I thought was just going to be a replica firearm.  Maybe I didn't have high expectations because this was my first experience with one of Walther's replica firearms, yet I was very pleased.  I was also surprised at how light weight the rifle felt when compared to its perceived size.  The height of the stock seems to give it a heavier look.  Last, I was glad to see that the rifle felt solid and sturdy.  After deploying the sights, I felt like the rear sight had too much width, but I would need some range time to really decide if this is an issue for me.
