A couple of years ago my Father-in-Law, a WW2 vet surprised me by revealing he had an old pistol he'd taken from an Italian POW during the war. He was in his middle 80's and had no further use for the gun so he gave it to me. It's a Beretta M-1934, .380 pistol that was manufactured in 1936 according to the seriel number listed on the Beretta website. Apparently Beretta has kept records of all the guns they made to date. Anyway, it's in very good shape and appears mechanically sound as it's been stored in an oil rag and closed box for about 60 years. I did fire it a few years ago without any difficulty. There is some holster wear and the grip screws are a bit chewed up but otherwise it's in great shape. I'm just wondering if there's anyone out there that might have an idea what value the gun might hold to a collector? I also have the orginal holster but it's been cut down by the POW to make drawing the gun easier.
