nice gun, but not quite worth the cash

You can buy a highpoint loaded with extras for half the price of this gun

Performance

This gun is very accurate once it is sighted in correctly... but so does alot of other carbines at this price level. feels solid to hold. trigger feels a little long

Features

the only feature i feel is tops on this carbine compared to a highpoint is the fact that it has more magazine options and the key feature that it is the only carbine to be able to swap the safety and mag release to either the left or right side. ability to mount lights lasers etc...

Appeal

a little heavy looks great. again, a high point with the ati stock and it looks the same for less

I feel that it is too much money ( due to the beretta name being on it) it is like toyota and lexus with this and a highpoint carbine. both shoot great both are customizable, accurate as all hell when dialed in with very little recoil. beretta accessories are also highly priced when you can get comparable if not better accessories for less. like i said in features. the best part is the ability to "switch" from left hand to right hand practically on the fly and accept various mags from the px and other series. I believe this carbine is going to be used moslty as a plinker so just consider if you want to spend that much money on it when you can purchase another carbine for less then half the price. I have shot this gun and i own a high point, no big differences

you're kidding ??

comparing a hi point to a beretta?
after you shoot the hi point a few thousand times- you will se the difference.
and after a few years if you try to sell the cheap hi point you will realize that its still a cheap gun.
Hi Point.. aka disposable gun. wear it out- throw it away.

You say, "after you shoot the hi point a few thousand times- you will se the difference"????
Thats a lot of shoot'n friend! Thanks but, I'll stick with one you don't havt to shoot so damn much to be sold on it!! Their are a lot of damn good weapons out their, shot a lot of them through the years. When I picked up my first Glock, I thought what a 2X4!!! Then I shot on the Police Range. Quallified the first session. I was Sold
I got 3 of um!! But tell that to a Kimber, S&W, Colt, ect, ect. Guy
I'm shure the Hi point is a good starter weapon. Then later you can trade up for something more reliable!!
