    Default Berreta M1934 Rig

    This is another I picked up back in early December, hadn't posted yet...

    Cool little pistols, this one is Italian Army marked, and dated 1942. The holster is post war, but I like the look, sure looks like a "tropical" holster....

    Came with both mags, so that was a bonus...

    Another I am happy with...my pistol collection sure has ballooned over the last 4 months of 2018!

    These little Beretta pistols are so cool! Nice one. Kind of the “Glocks” of their time I guess you could say. Super tough and 5 parts field striped.

    Here’s one like yours on Mark’s site:

    Funny! I have a '41 Rig on the way. I like the .380 caliber to carry, and the M34 is a little safer to carry than my 1915 Colt .380. Brown holster is original (officer); green was enlisted. Have a second mag on the way; they weren't numbered to the pistol.

    Sure, here you go...now, this holster is in Bender's "Military Holsters of WWII", but that is kind of old, and what I have found is that these are post war, and set up to go onto British Pattern 37 type web gear, as you can see...

    Like I said, I may keep an eye open for a green WWII EM holster, but I like this web holster...just like I love the web and leather tropical holster for the 37M pistols...like to find one of those someday too...

    It sure is a sweet little piece, fits hand nicely, and the finger extension on the mag bottoms are really nice. The wide open mag sides are very Chauchaut like...

    I believe your holster is post war Italian issue. and yes, it's set up for the British P37 web system.
    And your're right, it is a cool holster. I bought mine because I thought it could be North African campaign issue, but it turned out to be something a bit later. Oh well, it's still cool.

    I had one too a long time ago and thought the same. I was not smart to not realize that brass would not have been used in WWII like that. Sold the holster and took the hit. Oh well, details will cost you if you don’t pay attention to them.
