Berreta 1934 vs Cheeta?
Could someone who has experience with both the Beretta 1934 and the Cheeta (models 83, 84, 85) give a comparison of these two .380acp pistols?
I can see the obvious differences in safeties & mag releases, and know the 84 is higher capacity since it's double stack. How does shootabiliy compare? Field strip and maintenance needs? Ammo preferences? Other notable differences?
I just started paying attention to Beretta's .380acp family (or 9mm corto). I find it interesting that they were producing both models simultaneously in the period from 1976 through 1991 since they would fill the same basic niche. (I suppose the Italian army didn't want to update their arsenal inventory till they switched to the 92.)
