Atlantic is super excited to bring you another great surplus find! This is the Beretta M1951, the M1951 was adopted by the Italian Navy, the Carabinieri and the Italian National Traffic Police, until it was replaced in all services with the Beretta 92 in 1977. This surplus lot of Beretta M1951 9mm pistols were in service with the Italian Navy. They are original Italian Beretta manufactured pistols that have seen service with the Naval branch of the Italian military. The M1951 is a short recoil-operated, locked breech pistol with a vertically falling locking piece and an open top slide.The pistol has a hammer striking mechanism with an exposed hammer, and a single-action trigger with a disconnector which enables semi-automatic fire only. A cross-bolt safety mounted on the weapon's frame provides safe operation with a cartridge introduced into the chamber. In the “weapon safe” position the slide catch is disabled. The M1951 is fed from an 8-round detachable box magazine. A hold open device will keep the slide locked open after discharging the last cartridge from the magazine. The slide can then be released by depressing the slide release lever located on the left side of the frame.
The Beretta M1951 is pretty rare, and is considered collectible. Predecessor to the famous Beretta 92 / M9. It is historically significant in that is was Beretta’s first locked breech designed pistol!
Comes with (x1) 8 Round Magazine
