Do you have any complaints about it yet? Like reliablilty?

No complaints here, only praise.  It's accurate, reliable, small and fast handling.  

If I have any complaints, it's with Beretta themselves.  It's my understanding that accessories like site rails, extra pic rails, etc won't be available until April or so.

I guess it just gives me and my CX4 time to "know" each other.

No complaints yet. About 500 rds down the barrel and not 1 Hiccup. Shooting range re-loads and Wallyworld white box and accuracy is great. Can't wait to drop a holosight on it or get some trijicon sights.
Worked really well with corbon , and hydrashock ammo too. So far it gobbles up everything I can stuff into a magazine.

I heard a guy around here has some in stock for $519.  I'm really tempted...

They have me really intruiged, but for the price I think I would rather have a Bushmaster M-17S

Could you email me with his name & number?  I would greatly appreciate it as I'm going to be picking on of these up and the price sounds very good.

I still like mine, but I could/have changed a couple things....

The forearm is kinda thin and slippery.

I know it's just 9mm, but mine has a strange recoil sensation on my check...rattle my teeth more like it's a larger caliber.

I actually did a mod to change my forearm issue. I added a M203 style forearm/grip from a DPMS Tuber handguard. It actually looks pretty cool and all I did was drill and tap the front sling swivel in the process. I also added a fake can to the skinny barrel. I finished it up last night...no pics yet. Some will think it is stupid, but I have about $10 invested in the mods....and no permanent changes to the storm.

Please post pics when you can.  I think the gun really needs a vertical grip and the fake can would only help the looks IMO.

hey accomplice... I have to ask the guy that told me about it... I can't remember who he said here in Austin that has some... but I remembered the price... I'll holla when I hear back from him.

I'm seriously thinking about trying to pick one of these up in the next few months...

Thanks Matthew.  That is the best price I've seen on these bad boys.  It must be close to dealer cost.  

BTW, any FFLs on here care to divulge what dealer cost is?

I finished the forearm and the fake can. I am on vacation until Monday. I will borrow the work digital camera and take some pics and post them on Tuesday.

I know that dealer was $460 area through Jerry's Sport Center...this was, however, 6 months before the were ever available and JSC decided not to carry them. Hope this helps.

Take it with a grain of salt

How did you secure the fake can onto the barrel?  Since you cannot legally thread the barrel did you use setscrews?  What material did you use for the can?  You did one hell of a job good-lookin gun.  I love the forearm grip.

Have had some problems with American made Factory mags not staying in the gun. A tiny touch of file work on the mags took care of the issue and mags still work 100% in my 92fs handgun.
So far only issude I have had with my storm. BTW Italian mags seem to all work.

Thank you very much Yankeediver,

If you notice the 2 ugly screw heads under the front rail....these are what holds the fake can in place. I did this apposed to set screws because I wanted to be able to change it back (I doubt I ever will) without scratching/maring and finish. I will try to find different screws that won't seem so protrusive. I have more pics that I can e-mail you if you'd like.....e-mail me at jwhoard@houstonengineeringinc.com

The only problem is that I currently can't attach anything to the rail...ex. laser, flashlight. This doesn't bother me, because I had no plans of doing so.

Oh....I built the can out of nylon...it turns real nice on my little lathe and it dyes jet black with simple Rit dye in you oven over night....it threads nicely too.
