It's a striker-fired unlocked breech design strongly influenced by the 1900 Browning. The pistol had an interesting feature for the time: When the gun was ready to fire, the firing pin projected slightly through the back of the breech block, serving as an early handgun-cocking indicator. For cleaning, the slide pivoted forward from the frame, on a pin in front of the trigger guard. The weapon is 6 1/4 long, 4 5/16 high, and7/8 at the grip panels.

This particular weapon is a World War II capture pistol. The pistol has two magazines and the original flapped leather holster, along with the original stamped bringback paperwork. My father brought it back from Germany at the end of WWII and it is priceless to me.
Now that is cool! Thanks for posting the pictures.

Thanks for posting this, I have a beretta 81BB hand select coming in this week with extra magazine. Hope I get a good one!

Noticed earlier this morning that the surplus/extra magazine's Classic had for the Beretta 81's are now gone/sold out. The two I received were as new.

And Beretta USA does have new ones available, now.
