Submitted here is my example of the Romanian contract for the 1934 Beretta, 9mm Scurt. Both pistol and holster are marked as being accepted by the Romanian Arsenal with the famous CM acceptance stamp. The entire slide is plum colored which is because of either the temperature of the bluing tank was incorrect or the bluing salts were not of sufficient strenght. This is an example where a five digit fixture or jig was used in order to apply the serial numbers as the fixture or jig had no provision for a blank space so a zero was used in its place. In this case,showing the two zeros in front of the three digit serial number. What question I have always asked myself is, how did a benchmark Romanian pistol reach the U S Forces and eventually end up in the States ? Questions, Questions, but little or no answers ?

How hard are low number, unreworked Romanian contract M1934 to find? I am persuing one very similar to the one show with a 3 or 4 digit serial number, zero in front of the number as shown and the CM marking, as shown. The price is $250. Good, bad or pass? I see no importers markings on the one I am looking at so I feel it may be a vet returned piece. Good idea to pick this one up for this price?

If the pistol is all original like what you have stated , then the price is worthy of pursue.

Yeah I have been thinking about making the drive over today to see it a little closer. I did not get a good look at it the last time as the seller was in a rush. I will post back what I see. Thanks for the help.
