I was stuck on a boring conference call for two hours and ended up Googling "rifles in 9mm" after I Googled "handguns in 30-06" and "handguns in .308". I saw a really cool looking thing called a Beretta CX4 Storm Carbine 9mm. I wonder if it's California legal.

(BTW there are handguns in 30-06 and .308 but I'm not man enough to shoot one.)

Best!

You can make it CA legal by sealing up the thumbhole stock or installing a bullet button, but in it's original factory condition CA considers it an AW. Very fun little rifles to shoot though!

Also, double points if you have a 92/M9 or a PX4, the magazines are interchangeable (have to order the right one, the 92 and PX4 mags are different but they make a CX4 model for each mag type).

As a side note, I've never shot a .30-06 handgun but I've shot .308 handguns (Thompson Encore) and the recoil is not as bad as you'd expect. :)

talk to Prince50, they were developing a bullet button for the storm not to long ago... not sure if it actually went into production though... you also have to get the stock spacers in order to make in 30" overall length...

Very cool and inexpensive piece of hardware to shoot.

I've been thinking for a while now that it'd be neat to get a CX4 and a PX4. Then send the carbine off to Gemtech to have the barrel cut down to the handguard and threaded. Something about sharing magazines and a suppressor between a pistol & carbine without having to spend ridiculous HK money is very intriguing to me. :)

We have completed the Bullet-ButtonŽ for the Beretta CX4 series.

Configurations we have available now

CX4 using PX4 mags in both .40 and 9mm
CX4 using 92F magazines in 9mm and .40
Cx4 using 8800 series magazines in .45ACP
CX4 using 92F mags in a PX4 magwell

Covers almost all with the one omition of a CX4 using 8800 series mags in .40.... I'll know if the standard unit works this week.

Regards,

Darin

The good news is that we are using Darin Prince's, because he is the best source for all bullet buttons including CX4! Also, yes the CX4 is long enough to meet the California requirements, as long as you do not remove Beretta's stock spacer (which comes already installed).

All CX4's in stock...

All rifles that can be made Calif OK with bullet button...

My big question is what other firearms use the 8045 mags?

Beretta sells a stock extender to reach the 30" OAL.
