Default Can't figure out what this pistol is.

This is a gun that I've had for a while. I got it from my dad, who got it from his uncle. My dad passed away a long time ago, but I think I remember him saying something about it being from WW2. Plus I figure the "PB" on the grips stand for Pietro Beretta. Not exactly sure though. Any help will be thanked!

It doesn't have any markings on the sides of the slide? 7.65 (32 ACP)
caliber?

I'm going to guess it's a late WWII Beretta model 1935.

Looks like this, a 1935

Beretta M 1935 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Or maybe this:

oh yeah she's alive. I have no idea what it shoots though. It's not all rusted up and a number 2 pencil (round #2 pencil) won't fit in the barrel.
