Does anyone know when these rifles will hit the market?

In the US, which is probably where 85% or better of the membership resides... the Beretta ARX160 .223/5.56? Not very promising. Nor, in all likelihood, the CZ805.

If I recall, Sturmgewehre was at a gun show a while back and spoke with some representatives from Beretta who said they have no estimate on when the rifle may be available to the US market, but they are considering a sporter model.

I'll see if I can't find his video that contains more info on it.

I hope they have better success with it than (Beretta) Benelli does with the MR1.

IMO... 20 years from now, long after the MR1 is discontinued, it will probably have a niche following similar to that of the Valmet M88 (Hunter) models... which they couldn't sell either when they were new, and that was an attractive rifle. :rolleyes:

Yeah - the Benelli MR1 (Beretta RX4 Storm) is one of the more pointless rifles out there. It does nothing a good AR-15 can't do a whole lot better, and the MR1 costs a whole lot more.
