EARLY BERETTA 7.62 NATO BM59 SELECT FIRE. FULLY TRANSFERABLE.
Cal. 7.62 NATO
Heavily resembling a crossover between the M-1 Garand & the M-14, the Italian BM59 is a creature all to itself. Bridging the gap between the 2 systems we have the receiver style of the M-1 Garand with detachable mag. capabilities of the M-14 in the 7.62 NATO cartridge. Housed in a beautiful hardwood stock w/ matching bbl. shroud, it enjoys a dark stain that still illustrates the original wood grain. It has an interesting muzzle brake, sometimes referred to as a Tri-comp, doubling as a grenade launcher, also including a folding grenade sight system. A rugged bipod providing over 11″ of clearance, folds tightly under the forearm of the stock when not employed. The front sight is a protected blade style w/ a rear peep sight that is micro adj. for both windage & elevation.
The receiver is designed to be top loaded utilizing stripper clips even though it utilizes a detachable 20 rd. proprietary box mag. The fire control selector is located on the front left side of the receiver w/ designations A-S for automatic & semi-automatic. Left rear portion of the receiver marked “SPRINGFIELD ARMORY’. Extreme rear of the receiver on top marked “P. BERETTA – 7.62MM BM59 – GARDONE VT – ITALIA – X000127”. Right side charging handle. Folding Winter trigger. Safety is located internally at the front of the trigger guard. Shoulder stock utilizes a rubber buttpad that conceals a folding shoulder rest. Sling swivels front & rear. Several components individually marked “PB BM59” as well as additional markings on side.
THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT MODERN REQUIRING BATF TRANSFER BEFORE TAKING POSSESSION. FULLY TRANSFERABLE.
STATUS: CLASS III.
