Description

 Beretta AR70/90 for sale

The Beretta AR70/90 was designed in 1985 to meet Italian Government requirement for a new assault rifle. It is an improved version of the previous Berretta AR70/223 assault rifle, which had some reliability issues. This assault rifle was adopted by Italian armed forced in 1990 as a standard issue infantry weapon. It is used in service to this day. However since 2010 it is being supplemented and gradually replaced by the new Beretta ARX-160 assault rifle. The Beretta AR70/90 has been exported to a number of countries.

The AR70 was destined to arm special units such as the San Marco Regiment of Italian Navy, the NOCS department of Italian Police, and the Italian Air Force security service VAM (in Italian: Vigilanza Aeronautica Militare).

The original design seemed good, but didn’t obtain the expected result and was never adopted by the rest of the Italian Army.

The three adoptions by San Marco, NOCS, and VAM were necessary because those units were not even armed with BM59 rifles, but rather were still equipped with the obsolete MAB (Moschetto Automatico Beretta) in 9×19 Parabellum.

In the mid-80s the Italian Army deliberated and announced a competition to replace the very dated BM59 in 7.62×51 NATO with a modern 5.56×45 NATO design. Obviously Beretta participated, and in 1985 it presented a new improved rifle derived from the AR70.
