I recently picked up a 1943 dated 1934 Beretta with a flat based magazine. I've snapped a picture of the pistol and mag along with another 1934 I have with the correct mag. Is this flat based mag. some kind of aftermarket or could this be a Beretta mag. as well. It appears as old as the pistol but has no markings of any kind.

Sorry for the poor picture quality.

I am not much of an expert of anything being Italian but Beretta did make some flat bottom magazine bases , however I remain doubtful on what I can determine from your picture whether your flat bottom magazine is even Italian. The ones that I am familiar with look just like your extension magazine but only with a flat base.

Huggiebear is correct in that the late war flat base mags are constructed like the finger extension mags. Therefore, it does appear that yours is aftermarket. You can see a picture of an authentic mag offered by Randy Bessler at:

Fortunately, standard finger rest mags are in good supply, and Randy does offer a few for sale. Don't forget the 1934 mag is slightly wider between the lips than the 1935 model.
