Since Beretta has announced they are discontinuing the ARX100 the prices have gone through the floor. I went ahead and picked one up for $900 (IIRC the original MSRP was right below 2k). I have to say this thing is impressive.I haven't gotten out to shoot i yet (that'll come this weekend) but the quality, lightweight, and all of the features they packed into it makes me wonder why people weren't able to overcome their revulsion to the appearance of the rifle. Honestly it shoulders very well and all of the controls are right there, no reaching for anything. Anway for what you pay and what you get this is a deal. Softcase, two Beretta marked (obviously Mec-gar) mags, etc for $900.
