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.

"Love this gun, but if you're planning on running for a few hours I recommend you get a 9.6v battery. It increases the ROF slightly as well as the FPS but not enough to be an issue. Once you get used to using the under barrel grip it'll become second nature to you. Don't like the iron sights but with pretty much any other sight, even a broken ACOG which is what I use, and the front sight it's easy to adjust to. Overall a great gun and would recommend to newby's and veterans alike.
"A follow up to my previous review-
the gun sucks with .20 bbs. sprays all over the place.
the cable through the folding stock is absolutely mangled from pinching. looks like a dog chewed on it.
The iron sights as mentioned in my previous review are absolute garbage.
Personally, the gun is too tall and bulky. Not heavy, just unwieldy.
However, it is still a very comfortable and (mostly) easy gun to use.
"This is my first non-springer airsoft gun. I haven't used it a lot but it hasn't had any huge issues
-Extremely comfortable to hold- the built in hand grip works well, I really don't need a vertical grip
-Uses M4 mags, what's not to like?
-I've held the elite version and this one seems like better value for money in external quality.
-Different than an M4
-Durable plastic body
-Ambidextrous through and through- I'm a lefty, this matters.
-Decent fire rate
-Horrible Iron sights in low light
-Some mags have a little trouble locking in place, but they don't fall out
-Not sure if internals would survive a fall
-Stock cannot be collapsed while battery is inside, I've had to patch the cable with tape because it pinches
-If you want to take the front grip off you have to pry it off with a knife
-No GLX-160 grenade launcher yet
-The plastic body doesn't bother me, but I know it puts off some people
-Long reach if vertical grip is installed. Not for people with short arms.
I would reccommend this to beginners like me, it's easy to use, looks cool, and performs pretty well with the included battery.
I rated this 4 stars because of the issues with the stock.
