“The Beretta Mx4 Storm is a new submachine gun version of the Beretta Cx4 Storm semi-automatic carbine,” our good friend at thefirearmblog.com reports. Is it me or is gun design getting stuck in a sci fi movie marathon? The Chiappa Rhino has the whole Van Helsing steampunk thing goin’ on. The Kel-Tec KSG wouldn’t look out of place in Starship Troopers. And the MX4 seems like something Mama Alien would’ve birthed for Ellen Ripley. You know; if they’d been on the same team. On the other hand, Bollywood! “The Mx4 has been designed for the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs who should be receiving their first shipment in the next 12 months. . . The gun is chambered in 9x19mm NATO. It features a 12″ barrel and has a total length of 25″. It weights 6.28 lbs (including magazine).” Like I said: I’m waiting for the movie.
