I have a friend who is selling one that is all correct. Though fairly rare here, the Italian Garands were fairly common in Europe, and it's not uncommon to see Italian parts on US lend/lease returns. Beretta made a limited number for Denmark (you will hear 4000 or 8000 - I've never seen a serial number above 4000) Date of 1955 is correct. The sales between 19 represent the sales of Von Lengerke & Detmold which was purchased by Abercrombie & Fitch in 1929.The Abercrombie & Fitch sales and inventory records begin in 1929 and continue through the closing of Abercrombie & Fitch in 1977.Griffin & Howe is pleased to make available the sales records of Von Lengerke & Detmold and Abercrombie & Fitch, two legendary purveyors of sporting arms in the 20th century.The records exist in over sixty very large ledger books recording sales and inventory between 19.
I told him I had a M1934 Beretta with a cracked grip...that I worked with the M1 Garands and the M14 Rifles....
