    I already have a Beretta 92FS that I love shooting but I'm thinking of getting these 3 guns for range use only.
    •How do they compare to each other? The only one of these three I handled is the 1934 in a gun shop and it seemed pretty good.
    •Also how does the 1934 compare to a Makarov for those who have both? Better worse or about the same?
    • Between the three, which would considered more historically significant?
    •I can get both the 1951 and 84 online right now for about $925 but my local gun shop has a 1934 in great condition for about the same price.

    Also consider the model 70. It's basically a .380 companion to 1951 and it predates Series 80 in the same the 1951 predates 92.

    As far as Mak goes, there's no comparison with 1934. The Beretta is a gun from another era. When Walther came to the market next year, it completely outclassed M1934, and Mak is very much inspired by PP as a concept (and even takes a few design cues). However, 1934 is a historic gun that finally finished all the back-and-forth started with M1915 and became a recognized standard.
