Italian Army begins adoption of Beretta ARX-160

First seen in conjunction with the Italian Army’s Future Soldier programme, it looks like the Beretta ARX-160 has been adopted by the Italians.

According to Remi over at TheFirearmBlog (with help from Remov), the Italian Army has begun initial acceptance of futuristic / ugly looking new ARX-160 modular rifle.  Whilst its looks might not be to everyone’s tastes, it does sport some impressive specs – and that’s what really counts, right?
