In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves interviews Ricardo, Project Manager and Engineer for Beretta, about the new BRX-1. The BRX-1 is a new straight-pull rifle designed to incredibly high standards in Italy by Beretta. The BRX-1 has been in production in Europe since late 2021, but because demand has far outstripped the production capability of the BRX-1, these guns have not previously been designated for the US. However, Beretta plans to proceed with importing the BRX-1 although it may not happen until 2023.

    If they were to make a couple of AR15/AR10 magazine compatible ones they would sell like hotcakes any place where semi is verboten....

    I don't think I would ever buy a straight pull rifle unless it had a contained bolt like Browning's Maral has. I don't like the idea of the bolt coming back into my face unimpeded if somehow it doesn't lock up and yet manages to fire. With a regular bolt action, you know it's locked up because you turn the lugs into their locked position but with a straight pull, you are depending on whatever mechanical apparatus to do that locking with no outside indication if it was successful or not.

      @Zapp Brannigan Do you shoot an AR-15? An AR-10? If so I don't know why you would be hesitant about a straight pull bolt. The principle of a cam pin and bolt lugs into a barrel extension with machined lugs are part of this rifle. Straight pull rifles have been around for 100-125 years and are a well understood mature design.
