    CL- we have images of pizza boxes. Copy and paste will not work here. Use the little paper clip icon to the right of the smiley face- up above here.

    Sorry for the problem, I posted the pictures from a secure URL and aparently didn't realize it. I didn't use copy and paste.

    Anyway, I just posted the link to the picasa album... obviously if you don't know which gun it is then your not going to be of much help

    Tell use what your concern is! You talk of a useless Mod?

    Looks like a Model 1931 in .32acp

    Found your answer. You need to be more specific in the future.

    In 1919 improvements were made in the 7.65mm M1915 design. The round post barrel mount where the barrel was lifted straight up out of the frame was replaced with a T slot mount. This required a larger opening in the top of the slide so the double opening of the M1915 was changed to a single longer one. The slide now looked like the open toped style still used by Beretta to this day. The redesigned pistol is marked on the slide 1915 1919.

    Here is what I know, it is 1923 Model. It is in the best condition I have ever seen a 1923 model in.

    I have never in my life seen a 1923 model that looks like this.

    I have found one picture of this gun online and it was in horrible condition.

    I want to know, why this 1923 looks the way it does compared to the other model 1923s, why is it solid metalic? Why is the PB plated high on the grips and why does it not look like the other 9,999 model 1923s that were made.

    I have discovered this gun is extremely rare, but I also want to find a price range because I am looking to add this to my collection.

    Thanks jparrerson... but now the question of the day is... WHAT THE HELL IS IT?
