Is there a year on the top of the rear frame on the "ear" left side? If so it should be a year in the 1950's What looks like brass is a plating that looks like dull gold but I don't think it really is. Would need to see a photo to see if it's higher grade then I've seen before sounds like it, those I've seen sold in the 600-800 range, at least double that if it's in the original box.

Thanks for your reply. There is no other number on the pistol except the serial # on the frame just above the trigger, & (4 digits of the serial # on the barrel when it's released from the frame). The only part of the pistol not engraved is the trigger guard & the bottom of the magazine. I do not have the box it came in. If I ever find out how to send a picture I will. Thanks again for your help..... jbp

Ive got one stamped 1958 in the original box. My grandmother gave it to my mom in the early sixties then my mom gave it to me in the nineties. I always wondered what it might be worth, especially with 1958 on it.

I believe the 22 cal. beretta we are talking about here is the model 948, not 950. The past prices I've seen on the 948 is out of sight. I do believe it is over $200 in average shape, if you can find one. I have the two barrel model. the second barrel is 6 inches.
Of course I could be wrong and it's not a 948 ???
And, I believe the Jinx is a 22 short whereas the 948 is long rifle...

Post some good quality pictures of both sides of the firearm and this should clear up the question. The pictures can be matched to the correct model number....

Hey Wiz, I got a question for you. I have been working on a corto brev 1958 with the long barrel, or the camper version as it is reffered to sometimes. From my research these were only sold in Europe. The grip screw is a different thread pattern than other .22 short 950 (short barrel) from the same era. Have a 1957 short barrel and 1958 long barrel. Also tried a friends .25 grip screw(modern after 1980 no luck either). Any Idea where I can get one. I am to the poing of rethreading the receiver grip.

Hum I have one w/ long barrel, it was like new for $125 so it was a no-brain question on purchase. I've never heard of them not being sold in the US but I haven't seen a lot of them, well maybe the one I bought might have been the only long barrel I've seen. I've also heard of them being threaded for a silencer but I've never seen one so I don't know if this is factory or modified.

Sorry, I should have been more clear, the 4 inch barrel was only sold in Europe and not produced for the US market. These guns were made because many European countries had laws against short barreled pockect type pistols. Any of these long barrel 950's came over here by service men in Europe or others bringing them back from trips overseas.Thats how the long barrel got to America but were not sold at gun shops here as "new guns".Ya I have two of the long barrel myself, Neat guns. Anyway still looking for that different thread on the grip screw.Anyone that can help let me know!!!
