My 38/43 had the captured recoil spring of the 38/42, but not its fluted barrel.  The 38/44 has a conventional recoil spring like the STEN

I dont think there was ever a 38/43 mfg designation. It was generally considered the 43 or second generation 38/42 with the gun had simplified markings and smooth barrel. My Beretta is registered as a 38/42 but has the smooth barrel old style 42 bolt with the small diameter captured spring and simplified markings.

Nice looking gun Petroleum. I like those those double triggers!  Is it a good shooter?

That may be...however, I bought my 38/43 way back in the day before I knew the model existed.  I submitted the Form 4 and put "38/42" in box 4d because I thought "38/43" was an error...ATF kicked it back and made me change it to "38/43."  There's also more than a few military weapon references which also use "38/43"...so there's that.

 

Beautiful 38/42 BTW...

There is some confusion in the designation of these guns: the 38/42, 38/43,... are only experts designations.

The Beretta's name was "Model 1" for all the short barreled versions till the "Model 2, 3, 4 " for the post war model with colapsable stock.

The Italian army's name was "Model 2" for the so called Mod. 38/42 and Mod. 38/43, then "Model 3" for the Mod. 38/44, "Model 4 and 5" for the Mod 38/49 with the new safe buttons.
