ID:	2115354 . The two magazines with the finger extensions have the stamped steel folded for the finger extensions. The first holster is a standard Italian issue, the last two are the universal green holsters made by the Italians . Any more information and input on these 4ut marked Beretta's . Thanks

    Really like the Beretta 34 and 35 pistols. And your's are nice.
    Lot's of interesting marking variations and a very nice price point. (but they do seem to be moving upward in price...)
    Thanks for sharing.

    Default Beretta M 1935

    Very interesting read about the Beretta's '34 & '35 guns. I recently picked up a Mod. 1935 Beretta in 7.65 caliber with a pigskin holster for a very reasonable price at a gun show. The piece has a very high polish blue finish that I estimate has 70 % to 75% remaining. Some finish on the slide is turning a plumb brown color. The date 1940 and XVIII is stamped on the left side of the slide and on the right rear of the receiver there is a large "G" stamp with small lettering inside the G. I'm not sure what that stamp means.
    The black pig skin holster is in good shape but shows some ware. A name "PFC Regan" is scratched inside the flap and looks like the PFC put it there using the blade of a pocket knife .
    All serial numbers on the frame, slide and barrel match. The single magazine that came with the piece has the finger extension . It is a very pleasant piece to shoot and seems to be quite accurate . I'm glad to find this Beretta site. Big Coulee

    You already know that this is a Geco marked gun.

    4 UT, also expressed as IV U, stands for 4 Ufficio Tecnico di Controllo armi e Munizioni (4th Technical Office for Arms and Munitions Inspection). Also, Geco stood for Gustav Genschow and indicates a civilian gun exported to Gemany. Ralph

    Yes I was told in another forum is was a commercial Mod. 1935 that had been imported to Germany and sold there. I thought someone else might have a little more info on the piece to add to that. Big Coulee
