Only 53000 of these RSI Beretta 1934's guns made were made late 1943 -1944. Some were with the blank slides.

Very nice find.

A friend and I found a 1934 that exhibited extraordinary accuracy back when I was just out of college. The thing had the usual awful trigger, but it could group below 2" at 50 feet.

Is that Bounty (the quicker picker-upper) underneath it? ;)

An exceptionally nice Beretta M1934, probably the nicest-condition one I've ever seen. And with its issue holster.

They are one of the classic pre-war military autopistol designs.

I don't think I've ever seen one broken. I understand that they were designed with a minimum of parts, made to be robust, and that they just don't break.

The ones that I've seen do have heavy trigger pulls, but we can't have everything!

Beretta continued to manufacture the Model 1934 for the civilian market until 1980, with more than a million produced --- making it one of the most produced handguns ever.

In my area these post-war, civilian-market M1934's aren't rare, with the only difference being the modern three-arrows-in-a-circle Beretta logo on the grips and different roll marking. And they are a lot cheaper on the used market than the wartime ones.
