I wanted to get a sense of current values of a Beretta 38/42 and thought this would obviously be one of the best forums to obtain good information - especially sense there are few for sale or sold and the ranges are pretty extreme. Gun is a carry-back, 1968 Amnesty with a current stamp. Seems to be in good condition, war used and is unmolested. Blue is certainly worn (probably appropriate for the age and function) and all numbers appear to be matching. Gun-smithed recently by a class III dealer and they said it was in proper condition. They had one concern about the stock, however, after further investigation (taking the butt plate off), it was either repaired a very long time ago or produced from the factory. The perceived defect is that the stock has a fine line that looks like a crack, however is perfectly straight and has a dovetail joint running the length (certainly not a field repair). I can certainly post pics shortly, just need to access the gun to take new ones. Any specific pics needed? Any thoughts are much appreciated!
I am waiting on a Beretta 38/42 SMG to transfer. What spare parts would you experts recommend? Do you know of any source for 20 or 30 round mags ( other than Gunbroker)? I can't find any. I heard Beretta PM12 mags fit a 38/42. (I have plenty of 40 round mags.) Thanks RFA
