    Perhaps someone can help me.

    I have a friend who's dad gave him a 380 pistol just before he died. His dad bought it just after World War II, because he carried large sums of money at the time. Interestingly he never once fired the gun.

    It has Pb on the grip and a Ser. No., No other markings on the gun.
    Looking at it, is a little smaller than a Markovrov. Any info on who made it would be appreciated.

    Best Regards,
    Sam

    Uh, Pietro Beretta, maybe?
    Could be a late war 1934 Beretta with no markings other than serial no.

    I'm with these guys -- PB has to be Pietro Beretta.

    Being in the electrical field, when reading the title, I was wondering why a handgun would have a "pushbutton" on the grip? :)

    Yeah, Josey, I noticed that after I posted the link.

    "This is technically still a firearm according to the BATFE, but repairs to make it fire will cost four times as much as this! Whatta deal!"

    I agree, it is a Beretta.

    ICK, My first thought at looking at the pic was "HE WANTS HOW MUCH :what: "

    I would give him $25.00

    $180.00 to purchase, $15.00 shipping, $25.00 FFL transfer, $300-450.00 in parts/gunsmith. One dumb buyer-PRICELESS!
