Beretta M1918/30 and Beretta Bolt Comparison

This weekend we took a look at a Beretta 1918/30 carbine, as well as a couple later Beretta SMG bolts. The 1918/30 is rather unusual in that is was designed specifically as a semiauto firearm, and uses a hammer mechanism instead of the much more common fixed firing pin setup generally found on pistol-caliber military carbines and SMGs.

You can find a gallery of photos of the 1918/30 on the Beretta 1918/30 page in the Forgotten Weapons Vault:
