    Folks,

    A friend of mine is attempting to order parts for this gun but cannot figure out which company made the gun. He called Beretta and they told him Beretta made the gun but with the limited markings on the gun, it would be hard to say which model it is. I was hoping that someone on ts.com would recognize it. I appreciate anyone taking the time to check it out.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Its a Mario Beschi,small Italian gunmaker.Most small custom makers use "cottage"produced parts and then custom fit them.
    I had a beautiful SXS of his for several years.
    I didn't try to find out if he's still in business,you should be able to search that.

    There are any number of smiths that can make parts, but I'd talk to Gun Dr. He services the English crowd in his area, and it looks like all you need is a tumbler and sear.

    Thanks guys for the info on Gun Dr(Doug Braker)! I will pass all of this on to my friend.

    I searched and found limited info on the maker. Sounds like they stopped making guns in the 80's.

    On behalf of my friend, he got the gun fixed and back to the owner. I appreciate all of your assistance getting information to him about the gun.

    Thank you,

    Steve
