Introduction

The Tx4 Storm is a shotgun of Italian origin. It was developed by Beretta in the late 2000's and is part of the Storm lineup that is marketed in the USA. The design has been derived from earlier semi-automatic Beretta designs.

Design

The Tx4 is gas operated and uses a rotating head breech bolt. The forearm and stock are both made out of polymer. The tubular magazine is located beneath the barrel. Ghost ring sights are fitted and a Picatinny rail allows for additional optics.

Firepower

The Tx4 Storm fires 12ga 3-inch shotgun shells and is semi-automatic only. The tubular magazine holds 5 rounds and one additional round can be carried in the chamber. Due to the gas system low power shells will not cycle. Various chokes can be fitted onto the threaded barrel to meet user needs.

Users

The Tx4 Storm is thus far only available in the USA. It is marketed for law enforcement and civilian home defense use.

Variants

Tx4 Storm

The Tx4 Storm comes only in a single version with 47 cm barrel and 5 shot tubular magazine. Various chokes can be fitted on the threaded muzzle and a Picatinny rail on the receiver allows for a variety of optics to be fitted.
