In this short video, we take a look at three different used firearms that I found in the warehouse. There are no real criteria for this series, we just pull ones that we find unique, strange, or cool for one reason or another. For the picks this month, I chose an LWRCI M6, a Beretta CX4 Storm, and a Browning Auto-5 shotgun. 

LWRC International M6

The first firearm, the M6 from LWRCI (Land Warfare Research Center International) is a very rugged 5.56 piston-driven rifle that looks aesthetically similar to an M4 Carbine. It was acquired by as part of a law enforcement trade-in, and we believe it was likely used by a SWAT team because of the expensive and well-laid-out components. I picked this firearm for this month because it has clearly seen a fair amount of use, but it still has a lot of life left in it. 

CX4 Storm

The second pick of the month is the Beretta CX4 Storm. This is kind of a funky little gun. But I think if it got a couple of minor tweaks, it would be a very popular firearm, instead of a niche PCC that you don’t see very often. CX4 Storms have a non-adjustable thumbhole stock, a non-threaded barrel, no forward rail slots on the handguard, and fixed iron sights that tend to get in the way of certain optics such as an EOTech 3X magnifier. This just seems like an oversight to me, because other popular PCCs are a bit more user-friendly when it comes to these features.

The PCC market has blown up in popularity over the last decade. Competition shooters, firearm enthusiasts, and even tactical professionals in certain situations are fond of the pistol caliber rifle design, but without modifications, the CX4 Storm does not offer the same advantages of models such as the CZ Scorpion or SIG Sauer MPX. This usually causes the CX4 to get overlooked by consumers who are not shopping by brand but for the best option that suits their needs. The CX4 Storm in 9mm is a great firearm to shoot, but it would quickly become an industry favorite if it received an overhaul from Beretta’s top-tier engineers. 

Browning Auto-5

When it comes to shotguns, few models are as legendary as the Browning Auto-5. It was invented by John Moses Browning, the undisputed best firearms designer to have walked the face of this planet. He designed this firearm in 1898, and it quickly became the first-ever mass-produced semi-automatic shotgun. Other companies were trying to accomplish this task, but the reliability and ruggedness of Browning’s design could not be matched. 

The Auto-5, or Humpback as it is commonly known due to its unique receiver shape, would go on to have an incredible production life, with the last of them being manufactured in 1998. They were made in a wide variety of configurations – this being a Light Twenty (Lightweight 20 gauge) – but were also commonly seen in 12 gauge and 16 gauge or the “Sweet Sixteen” model.

Even though the Auto-5 is no longer being produced, the legend lives on in two fashions. The first is that there are still countless outdoorsmen who have grown up shooting Auto-5s and will continue to do so for the rest of their lives. Despite the age of the design, they point incredibly well and are quite mild on recoil, even compared to some modern production semi-auto shotguns. 

The second reason this legendary firearm lives on is thanks to Browning’s current production A5. While the internals are completely redesigned, the iconic "Humpback" design was incorporated in to give a nod to the company’s founder, JMB. So, for those who are looking for a brand-new sporting shotgun but would also like to tip their hat to the greatest who ever did it, the A5 is the way to go. 

Conclusion sells thousands of used guns every month and is always getting more into the warehouse. We’ll pick it up again next month with three different firearms that are interesting, as every firearm has a unique design and its own back story.
