Newbie needs gun id info and more
Hi everyone,my name is Rick and I'm a newbie to this forum so please break me in gently, don't wanna do anything unknowingly to rile anyone here since everyone here has guns LOL I'm looking for some info on an old Berreta handgun that belong to my mother who recently passed away.I can't tell for sure what it says on the gun but as close as I can tell, it says Berreta cal 6.35 Gardone v.1 made in Italy and it's stamped 1956 on the other side just between the trigger and the handle. The gun shoots true but it'scot fireing consistantly, meaning I wouldn't want to have to depend on it in and emergency situation. What I'm wanting to know is there anyone here that can give me any info on this gun or know where I might be able to find any info on it? Also if there's any type of schematics of the breakdown of it anywhere? I'd like to take it aprt and see if I can fix the problem myself but I don't want to try without something to go by. Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated so Thanks in advance.
Most likely a model 418 from your description.
take it to a gun smith...

Wow, cool story!
if it were me, I would follow Bruce's advise and take it to a smith... since you seem to be unsure about the takedown, my money is on it needing a cleaning and lubrication...
please post a picture of your heirloom! if you need help, don't hesitate to ask.
