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.

"Best gun I've ever owned. Love the feel and the look. Fire rate with a 9.6 NIMH is roughly 25 rps. Maximum effective range is around 150-200 feet. Accuracy with .28 is incredible. Has a nice kick for an EBB.
Only complaints I have is small battery space, hard to adjust hop-up, and there is a the rail space for the GLX 160 (grenade launcher for the ARX 160) but there is no Airsoft version of it yet.

Great gun overall never had any real problems with it I've had it since Christmas of 2015 and it was great then and is still great now.
Highly recommend for anybody of any play style. High performance, high durability, and very unique.
"I mean its comfy and feels great.Looks different and has good range BUT the barrel becomes wobbly and usually falls out because the quick detach system of the barrel is flawed.I dont know if its just old gen or if current ones have the same problems.Also the blow back feels great.Its picky when it comes to mags.
"The ARX-160 Elite is an outstanding airsoft gun.
At first, the ARX-160 may appear to be a fairly typical "NATO assault rifle" with nothing too notable separating it from an M4. However, as I have started to find with many things, the greatness of this gun comes not from stand out headline features, but from the small attention to detail.
The ergonomics of this gun are excellent. While this may not seem like much, the molding of this guns furniture, pistol grip, and stock are all extremely well formed. The pistol grip is large and easy to hold, and the gun also has a bit of a built in slightly slanted fore grip, which I find far nicer to hang on to than a typical purely horizontal grip. In addition to this, the stock is slightly lower than you would find on a typical AR, which makes it easier to aim down sights while wearing a full face mask. Additionally, the ARX-160 features enough sling mounting points to satisfy almost any need, with one in the stock, two on either side of the receiver, and one at the front of the gun, for six total. Combine this with enough mounting points for an underslung grenade launcher, zoom scope, red dot, and the kitchen sink, you have quite the customizable platform.
As for the performance of the gun, I average about 400-410FPS with .20s, but most of the time I run with .25s, which still stay in the mid to high 300s. Accuracy is a strong point as well, and as far as airsoft guns go, this gun shoots very consistent, to the point where it is totally worth sighting it in. You can easily hit a person sized target at 50-75 yards, at least with .25s. It is also compatible with most M4 clips, which makes buying spares easy.
Umarex's attention to detail is also superb, I've had an opportunity to handle a real "ARX-100," (semi-auto variant of the ARX-160) and the accuracy to which Umarex recreated Beretta's craftsmanship is commendable.
One word of caution. My first ARX-160 broke within three days of receiving it, and I needed to send it back to Evike. However, Evike handled the problem admirably, and fixed my gun and had it back to me in two weeks. I have not had any problems with it in the exactly one year since then, and I have noticed no deterioration in the performance of the weapon.
As a 1 year owner of the ARX-160, I fully recommend it to anyone who wants a solid AR platform to play with.
