Hello. Little trading over the weekend landed me a pristine in-the-box blued Beretta Model 90 in .32 acp, made from ca. 1969-1983. I've been attending gunshows such as Ohio Gun Collectors Ass'n events for years and never saw one of these before.

It looks much like a Walther PPK, with a dash of H&K Model 4 thrown in. It uses a frame mounted thumb safety rather than a decocker/safety on the slide. Apparently to satisfy post '68 laws they added a slide catch lever after the first year or so, mine has it but the picture on the box doesn't! Markings include 'Beretta Armi Roma', never saw Rome mentioned on one of their guns before.

I'm clueless about pictures, don't own a digital camera anyhow, so if somebody else wants to post one step right up, with my thanks. And of course anybody who has experience with one of these chime on in. Don't know if I'll be shooting this gun or not, it really is close to 100%, and it's awfully sweaty weather to go to my club this week in any event.

congrats on the gun.

i owned one about 20 years ago, a hand-me-down from an Uncle.....i ended up trading it for something else, not realizing what i had, and that Uncle has passed away so i feel like crap for letting it go...

it was a good little gun, a dab of Walther, a sprinkle of Makarov with a pinch of Beretta thrown in....also, i belive mine said ....7.65mm on the left side, not .32acp......

mine was heavy and big for the caliber, but it shot well and pointed correctly for me.

id like to have one again in average condition at least, just because......

I have one I have had for years, very little use, no bluing wear. I have run 7 rounds through it about 10 years ago. I changed the grips to a nice pair of wood beretta stamped set. Stamped Italia Roma. This one has no papers or box and one clip. Would any of you guys know what it`s worth if I decide to sell it ? Thanks, Gary BERETTA MODEL 90 ITALIA ROMA 32 CALIBER
