In 97% mint sharp condition, we have a very scarce Variant Beretta Model 1934 pistol in .380 auto. This is a Commercially proofed early production 1936 dated pistol that was diverted to the Military and bears a Terni acceptance stamp on the right back tang. This is an all matching pistol with a mint bore. If you collect Beretta Pistols this one is quite rare and would be highly desirable to have in your collection.
The Beretta Modello 1934 was a very compact and potent pistol although it was a little on the light side power wise by WWII standards, it was well thought of and highly regarded by those who carried one. These small but potent .380 auto caliber pistols were very popular with both the Italians and also their German allies during the war and they were also a prized war trophy among Allied soldiers. This is a very fine example and could have been captured anywhere in the Mediterranean basin from North Africa to the top of the Italian boot. Certainly, this fine example will attract any serious collector.
