Beretta brings us their iteration of the modernized intermediate range infantry rifle in the form of the Beretta AR160. Designed with the operator in mind for ease of use and reliability, the AR160 boasts very impressive improvements for a standard issue infantry rifle. With the future soldier in mind, the AR160 is constructed mostly with polymer to save on weight and its control layout is fully ambidextrous to suit both left and right handed operators; even the casing ejection port can be reversed to allow the user to choose the side casings are extracted from. Borrowing the layout from current modern rifles, the positioning of the controls will be familiar to any user who is accustomed to the classic AR platform.
The fully licensed Beretta ARX160 from UMAREX is the first accurate recreation of this modern rifle featuring the same control layout that makes the AR160 popular. The attention to detail has not been left out as this AEG sports ambidextrous controls, a folding stock with adjustable length of pull, a full set of rails on all sides including an uninterrupted rail on top, and a functional bolt stop and bolt release. For ease of use, this AEG also utilizes the same quick change barrel system that allows you to remove the outer barrel, inner barrel, and hopup by pulling down on two tabs without any tools required for easy maintenance or swapping out parts. The hopup itself is on a spring loaded buffer to make optimal contact with the air nozzle for better contact and air seal. The gearbox is easily accessible by folding the stock and removing a plate to reveal a QD spring change system which allows you to change out the spring without having to even remove the gearbox from the receivers.

"When this gun works, it works great.
Unfortunately I have issues with this AEG since its first outing. I am not a tech so I can't and won't get into the technical details but It has had electrical issues and then shortly later gearbox issues. The first time it was fielded it would short out and nothing would work intermittently and the second time out the gearbox seized up.
I don't play often so naturally it went out of its warranty period before I really got to use it much. The positives though are its a cool looking AEG that you won't see to often, and it is actually very accurate right out of the box. Chrono'd at 390 the first time it was fielded.
"Just got the gun yesterday, first impressions are awesome. Solid gun, takes my g and g m4 mid caps. Definitely worth the price, its very modular to attack any situation!
"Purchased this as a high-end starter rifle so I had something that would last. The build quality is exceptional, the gun has a very solid construction with a great bit of heft to it. In the operator's hands you really feel like this is a tool of the near future. While it's a little disappointing that the lower rail is cut short by a hand guard that conceals the attachment point for a glx160 (which at the point of writing doesn't exist), it's decently ergonomic and attaching a grip to the rail that is there isn't unmanageable. I enjoy the profile of the rifle, it's like a combination of SCAR, G36, and M4 design techniques that really make the gun stand out. Even when another player calls it a "fish gun", you'll be proud its your fish gun.
As for overall performance, the rifle shoots fairly accurately at around 320 FPS with .25 gram bbs. The wheel hop-up keeps its position easily and doesn't lose its adjustment. The fact that the gun has a quick change barrel system also allows for easy access to the hop-up if needed for those with larger fingers, as you can just pull the barrel out of the gun. While the peep-hole sights don't give you quite a lot of peripheral vision, they lend themselves to accurate shots to start, but I'd recommend an optic to replace them eventually. The EBB is solid with a satisfying metal *tick* that sounds whenever the bolt fires forward. And as strange as it sounds, I find that the bolt/mag release under the finger guard helps for faster reloads with gloves on,and it allows you to release the mag while you already have a hold on it.
Overall, I'd say this is a well-rounded rifle for those looking for future-soldier aesthetics that are both functional and cosmetic.
