    Can anyone identify this pistol?

    I'm trying to identify a 9mm pistol for a friend. When her father passed away, she discovered it among his things. It "looks" sort of old, has no manufacturer's name or model number on it, but does have a serial number (G46879) stamped into the receiver and the slide. The only distinguishing marks are the letters "PB" in a very fancy script style on each handgrip. I made two photos that I'm going to try to attach to this posting.

    It's a Beretta, looks like a Model 1934 or Model 1935. The slide markings may have been obscured if the pistol was refinished. A gunsmith can verify caliber for you and check for proper operation.

    It's a Beretta adf[gkaergksad,pkbavlsvd,l.

    All I can tell is it's a Beretta. I don't think the 34 or 35 came in 9mm, did they? If there are no other marks, how do you know it's 9mm?

    Those are P.Beretta grips. Look for the caliber designation. It's probably what we call .380 acp.

    I believe they came in "9mm Corto," aka .380ACP.

    Yes, that's it. From the info you provided, I decided that it's a hurry-up construction from other than the Baretta factory. The serial number says it was made between 1972-75, It's stamped "Cal 9" under the serial number on the receiver, and there are no other stampings. The surface is unpolished and shows the machining marks. From the crispness of the serial numbers, I don't think the manufacturer's regular stampings were machined off. I also tried to field strip it, but the barrel resisted being pushed back. Can it stand a blow with a block of wood or leather mallet?
    Maybe the first step is to take it to a gunsmith. Thanks for your help.

    If you wish to keep it and get it working by all means take it to a gunsmith and let him work on it. Good luck.
