My LGS called and said they finally got a Cx4 in today . I went and looked at it and it was the px4 mag version. I couldn't stand it and bought it. I wanted the 92fs mag version. But with looming elections and lack of availability I jumped on it. Got it for 790 . I tried some beretta px4 30 rnd factory mags and it wouldn't lock them in. But the 17 rnd mags that came with it lock up correctly. Im guessing it's the 30 rnd mag at fault ? Next question is it very hard to swap out parts to make it a 92F mag rifle ? Is it rock solid afterwards . Thanks WarDawg


PS. This particular rifle came packed with the under the stock piccannany rail that they sell on berretta's site , cx4 sling, cx4 soft case, cx4 hard case, 2 ea mags, stock spacer, cleaning kit .

To be completely honest , the LGS guy went and got the mags off the shelve and said theses are Factory Beretta 30 something Px4 mags. I didn't get a look at the packaging .He might have had the wrong mag series. It did slide in but wouldn't click in. The 92 series mag is fatter.It wouldn't go in at all . I did go to the beretta website and find there 92 series insert for $19 and got it on order. Cheers wardawg .

Did you pick up a new magazine release? You have to get a 92 series mag release to go WITH the insert to use the mags.

I did the same thing two years ago. I found a px4 pistol on the EE and bought it.
Since then I have bought eight 92s in various configurations but I love the Storm pistol. I'm expecting delivery of a compact in 9mm next week.

Super score on that rifle with all the extras!

I went the same route. I got the 92F conversion kit from Brownells. With the exception of one malfunction caused by a GI surplus mag, it has been 100% reliable with various types of ammo. Some steel cased, some aluminum cased and my reloads.

I tried to get my money back by posting the PX4 conversion for sale, but there was no interest.

I have a 9mm that I can run 92, PX4, and 8000 mags in.

Also a .45 that can run 8045 and PX4. 45 mags in.

I'm thinking about getting another set of them so I can have them dedicated to a particular pistol and caliber.

I like the Mec-Gar 20rd Beretta mags in mine. The base plate matches up nicely with the grip so there isn't much sticking out. I bought them from Arms Unlimited for $25 each delivered a couple of months ago; looks like they're $28 now.

+1,000,000 on the Maglula loader. One of the best firearms accessories I've ever purchased. Nearly impossible to load Beretta 30 round magazines without one.

Yeap...the way to go for sure.

I got my CX-4 back when they first hit the street. Its got the 92 style mag insert as the PX-4 pistol wasn't even offered when I got the carbine. I got the PX-4 pistol when it did come out and I like it a lot but I left the 92 adapter in the carbine due to the magazine availability and cost advantage of the 92 series.

Years of trouble free service from that carbine. Do the DIY trigger job, or if money is just burning a hole in your pocket go with the Serra Pappa trigger conversion. I would try the DIY trigger first. Ten minute job, just don't over do it.

Enjoy!

I used the included loader one time on my px4 rifle with a 20rd mag and haven't needed it since but the first time, even with the loader, was tough.

Anyone know where I can pick up a 9mm version for a reasonable price? I have a .40 CX4 but would love a 9mm to go with it.

I got the 92 conversion parts in. Mag sleeve and mag release button. Install was a breeze..... Got me 4 ea PB 17 rnd mags and 2 ea PB 30 rnd mags. Just haven't been able to shoot it yet ...Cheers Wardawg

What's the issue with the Px4 mags? I got a pretty decent deal on a Storm Carbine that uses the Px4 mags so I just bought some extra mags and watch for sales on them. I guess if I had a 92, I'd want interchangeable mags and the hi-cap mags would be nice too. Anything else I should know about them?
Link Posted: 6/10/2016 11:23:24 PM EDT
I've got a 9mm version coming next week via a FFL on GunBroker! $735 shipped, LNIB. not extras, but oh well. Beretta reports these won't be back in production for 1-2yrs b/c that line is making the machinegun version for an overseas contract. When NRA sent out an email featuring the CX4 as the gun of the week, I had to act.

I should have seen the NRA code before I bought my 30rnd mags.

Nothing inherently wrong with the PX4 magazines. However, they have limited choices as to capacity. With the 92 series mags you have so many choices and you can find much better prices on mags..

I have a PX-4 pistol (which I like) but my CX-4 uses 92 mags. I had bought my CX-4 when they first came out and the PX-4 pistol was being sold yet. After I got the PX-4 pistol I had wanted to change the CX-4 over to the PX mags but after figuring out the cost of the mags and the fact you couldn't get a 30 round PX-4 mag I decided to stick to what I had. That said I could see wanting a CX that took PX mags if the owner already had the PX gear.

If anyone is in the D/FW area I was in the Dallas GT Distributors a week ago. I guess a PD had turned in a bunch of CX4 9mm carbines as they had quite a few. Price was $389. Was tempted (still am) but don't really "need" one.

Ok, that's what I thought. I forgot the cost issue, the Px4 mags are expensive.

That's a good price. Were they in good condition?

Yep, very good condition. I believe the tags said they came with cases too. I may run away from work tomorrow and go take a closer look if they still have them. Earl

**Edit** I did run out there this afternoon. A week ago they had a rack of them. They are down to two. They are CX4 Storm carbines in the hard shell case with one mag and manual. I didn't opt for one. It would be a nice to have but I already have a couple of 9mm carbines that I like pretty well.
