I have a Beretta Mod 84 cal. 9 short, I would like to know if it is authentic.
In the left side says PIETRO BERETTA GARDONE V.T. Cal. 9 short, and below says, MADE IN ITALIA (ALL BERETTA'S I have seen say MADE IN ITALY) down the barrel has the following number: B 12554 Y , and IN the right side says: BERBEN CORPORATION NY - N.Y. - MOD. 84 - PATENTED
Other features match the original brand.
Thank in advance for your opinion.
on the right side there should be a couple of letters stamped just to the right of the trigger. they should be in a box? Mine has a AF which makes it a 1980 mfg. date. Beretta USA has the search engine under the FAQ page.
Thanks for your answer.
Yes there are a couple of letter in a box, this is AD, and outside of box, near of the left bottom there are the letters PSF.
Look at the photos
