Item Description


The Beretta Model 1934 is a compact, semi-automatic pistol chambered in 9mmK and manufactured in Italy from 1935 to 1991.
It was issued as a standard service firearm to the Italian armed forces beginning in 1935.
It was designed as a direct competitor to the Walther PP in order to not lose any major military contracts to the German pistol.

It was accepted by the Italian Army in 1937 and was also used during  Second World War by German, Romanian and Finish military forces.
It became Beretta’s most highly produced product during that era, and from introduction to end of production around 1,080,000 of these pistols were manufactured globally.

After the war, the M1934 continued to serve Italy’s military into the 1960s, and with the Italian police through the 1970s.
It was also the first of several later Beretta models to feature an open top slide, as is still seen on the famous Model 92 and all its variations.
