The ARX160 A3 can be configured in numerous variants depending on operational requirements with minimum change of parts. The ARX is capable of single shot and fully automatic fire. The weapon was NATO qualified in 2010, after undergoing stringent testing in adverse conditions and various operational scenarios and is the only in-production and in-service multi-calibre weapon (with 3 calibres) available in the market. The upper and lower receiver are made of high impact reinforced polymer and the barrel from specialised steel made to Beretta specification and is nickel-chromium plated with different rifling pitch in accordance to the caliber to provide unmatched precision and reliability.


The weapon is fully ambidextrous with seamless transition from right to left hand users and vice versa with all controls including fire selector and magazine release available on both sides. Cocking handle and ejection side can also be reversed within seconds in the field based on requirements and allowing for compatibility with state-of-the-art technologies such as corner-shot. Weapon is equipped with mil standard 1913 Picatinny rails on all sides to allow for 100% compatibility with any available sights or accessories. In addition, the weapon is virtually lubricant free which is a huge advantage when operating in sandy/desert conditions. The weapon is extremely light weight; approximately 3 kg without accessories in standard configuration.


The GLX 160 Grenade Launcher is the lightest in the world at less than 1 kg and is available as UBGL, mounted on bottom Picatinny rail within a matter of seconds as well as in stand-alone configuration. The GLX has an effective range of 400m and can be equipped with latest Fire Control Systems (FCS).
