this gem came in to my dealer finally today...bought from MWT 3 months ago....my 2nd MWT purchase and i will say ive been very pleased both times.
i believe the gun to be original finish both metal and stock. no rust...i do see some odd silver under the barrel in the breech which makes me wonder if its a dewat? maybe Robert Naess can tell me?...no matter, im very pleased as i paid a very good price.
its a B block(not sure if this is like german ww2 guns?? where B2176 = 12,176 th gun made ??Just noticed the date 1949 on the gun!!!....funny...i guess its not a ww2 gun
the only issue is a very tight mag well..i literally had to pound mags into it...some went in with pressure and rocking, some had to be pounded in...gun ran very well...very controllable
anyone know what the S is on it? is the B in a circle= Beretta? it has a barrel line..does this mean original barrel? barrel is slightly different color, so i wonder if replacement (dewat)
gun is registered as a 38/49, but its clearly not...receiver even says 38a/44...not sure the best process to fix this? can i submit paper work after the transfer to change it?
all opinions welcome....id like to learn anything i can about it
