These Surplus Beretta Model 81 Cheetah .32 ACP pistols are original Italian made Beretta’s, that come from the Italian prison system. This lot is very consistent, and the majority of these pistols will be from Very Good surplus to Poor surplus condition.  These pistols are offered in standard and hand pick (our staff will select the cosmetically best one out of 10) option is available for $20.00 extra on these.

We have taken pictures several High Resolution pictures of these to give you an idea of what you will be getting. Please keep in mind our intention was to pick up as many imperfections on the pistol as possible. We also picked up the brown grease that is on these pistols, it’s not quite cosmoline. But it is definitely brown and some kind of grease! Compared to the naked eye these pictures pick up everything. bBt it gives a good representation of what the pistols will look like. Select the appropriate option above and you will see the corresponding picture for each a standard (the one depicted is low end) or a handpick.

For the most part this group shows very little wear from actual firing of the pistols and more nicks, scratches, wear from holster use, handling, or storage. Some pistols may have a little bit of freckling on the pistol or the magazine, but nothing major (except for Grade C). This would make sense since this pistols came from the Italian prison system, according to the importer. Choosing the Hand pick option will get you the best 1 out of 10 cosmetically, this insure you receive a Very Good  to good condition model. Choosing the Standard will get you a Good to fair surplus condition pistol. Standards are up to the luck of the draw on what condition you will receive. Grade C will get you a fair to poor surplus condition pistol.

The importer roll marked these pistols under the trigger guard, so no big importer marks on the slide or frame. Check the pictures.
