SURPLUS BERETTA M1951 9MM MARKED 1975-1976, VERY GOOD TO GOOD SURPLUS CONDITION
This is a very special batch of Beretta M1951 pistols. These pistols like the last batch of M1951 pistols were imported from the Italian Carabinieri and they are in Very Good to Good Surplus condition. This batch is different in that the pistols were are all marked either 1975 or 1976 (it’s a large batch, we will update if we find other dates).
All Serial numbers in this batch have an F prefix followed by 5 digits example: F0000x
(Serial numbers in some pics are blurred by us)
These pistols are not marked M1951, markings are as follows:
PISTOLA s.a. BERETTA Cal. 9m/m PARABELLUM GARDONE V.T. 1975 (or 1976)
These were made towards the very end of the production life of the 1951 series. They overlap production with the Beretta 92, and are made from the same alloy as the original Beretta 92. These pistols are in really nice condition.
Based on our research, this appears to be the first time this serial number range, and production dates have been imported into the US.
