Cool, so a Beretta ARX160, a bog-standard piston AR, and a Galil variant from 1983 that's had its wooden furniture swapped for black plastic. Big Grin

The top one looks like a SCAR and a Beretta ARX had a baby. I kinda like it.

Well, it does look more like it's six months pregnant rather than eight and a half. Big Grin

I have the Beretta ARX and it’s literally the worst long gun in my safe. A pile of excrement.

Why on earth did they use that picture of the ARAD with the sights badly photoshopped out?

Probably a recognizable brand and they didn't want to run into legal issues? That, or they didn't want to imply that the rifle came with whatever those sights were? Take your pick, I guess.

Yes, they should have taken a clean pic to be professional, but hey, it's not like we don't know what a pic rail looks like.

Looks like they took some notes from the LMT MRP piston uppers.

That Galil is puzzling to me. Did they go back to the drawing board and bring it's performance up to today's standards? Or is it a classic style bring back?

Yes, please give details, mine has been 100% reliable. Doesn't look good in pictures, but handles nice.
