Beretta, 1915, Italian Military, Matching, 9mm Glisenti, 246, A-1831
G-VG original finish including the frequently encountered plum slide, with sharp edge, holster and handling wear as one might expect from a pistol that has seen moderate field use. Frosted bore with corrosion but easily discernible rifling. Grips and magazine are in the same condition as the pistol. A somewhat scarce and desirable Italian Military pistol from WWI.
