3/30/18 - This is an 'as new in the box' example of a Beretta M104 - essentially a Beretta Brigadier 1951, made in the mid-sixties in Italy and imported into the US before the gun control act of 1968. It is in mint condition with no wear evident and with mint bore and grips. This was the first Beretta chambered in 9mm Para and was a precursor of the well-known Beretta 92 series. The Brigadier was widely used by various armed forces around the world in the 1950s and 1960s, with some copies made in Egypt and Iraq. This gun is a compete set, that includes the original box, manual and a magazine. Even the original plastic wrap is present. A great example of an early military Beretta.
