Its PMX submachine gun, unveiled at Milipol 2017, is shown for the first time in this region, and is considered a promising item in this area. However during the first day of SOFEX Beretta noticed that also its ARX assault rifles as well as its sniper weapons attracted considerable interest from the visiting delegations. In the sniper portfolio the starring weapon was Victrix Armaments Corvus chambered in 12.7 mm.
