There has been a lot of talk lately about next generation rifle systems for US armed forces. We have seen the SCAR (come and go?) the recent selection of the 416 in IAR form for the USMC and the army's individual carbine competition. In my totally non-expert opinion, no current system out there compares to the HK416. However, I keep reading about the Beretta ARX-160. The weight, the total ambidextrous capabilities, the piston system, the quick change barrel, etc. and I would like to know what industry experts think of this system as compared to the 416. The Italian armed forces apparently use it. What is the feedback? Does the outstanding reliability of the 416 outperform the ARX?
