6/19/18 - This is an original model 1934 Beretta in 9mm short (.380). The pistol is in roughly 91% original condition with a dull blued frame and a plumb colored slide. There's edge wear on the slide as well as some patina / discoloration on the front and back strap. The left side of the pistol is "RE" stamped for the Italian army. Guaranteed original and authentic from WW2. The bore has strong rifling but wear throughout. Mostly textured patina and beginning signs of some light corrosion.
