5/9/17 - This is an excellent Beretta M1934, which is crown over RE marked, indicating it was issued to the Army. The original finish rates at about 98%, with a spot of wear along the top of the barrel and minor finish loss on the back strap, as well as a plum hue to the slide. Slide is dated 1938 and properly marked XVI. Very nice set of grips, and an excellent bore with no issues. Comes with a proper forest green holster which is also proof marked inside the flap for the army.
