Beretta mod 1934

Cal. 9 short

The most common of Beretta.  Manufactured in 9mm short.

The slide is marked by the date of manufacture; this may be on a combination of the Julian and fascist calendars, the later commencing in 1922, e.g. "1937 XV" or "1942 XX".

Military weapons were also marked "RE" (regia esercito), "RA" (regia aeronautica) or "RM" (regia marina) for the army, air force and navy respectively, while police weapons bore "PS" (publica sicurezza) on the left rear of the frame.
