box & 20 cartridges & 2 stripper clips
unsealed buff stapled cardboard box printed in black.Contains 20 cartridges with brass cartridge cases and gilding metal jacketed bullets, held in two stripper clips.
Description: although the 9 mm Glisenti pistol (which had used a loaded-down version of the 9 mm Parabellum cartridge, and was unsafe with the powerful load used in the Beretta Model 1938 submachinegun series) had been obsolete since 1945, the habit of specifying this load only for the Model 1938 seems t have continued. This excellent submachinegun remained in military and police use until at least the late 1980s.
