Additional Variants


Beretta Model 81 (.32 ACP) as used in Scarface. The weapon pictured here is the actual screen-used gun used by Al Pacino in the film. The gun is in good overall condition with some minor scratches and wear caused by its repeated use in numerous action scenes from the film and on subsequent productions. The black Pachmayr grips have been replaced with a newer identical version as the original pair was switched out a number of years ago. The gun has been modified to fire blank rounds only and the barrel has some very minor oxidation/rust spotting that may have resulted from its onscreen use in other productions.

What does that stand for? - User: 2wingo

"BB" stands for "Brevettato Brevettato". The Italian word "Brevettato" means "patented". The original models were just called by their model number, then they were improved in 1980 with the B versions, so like 84B. The B models had an automatic firing pin safety, the caliber stamped on the barrel, a shorter extractor with a laoded chamber indicator and serrations on the front and back straps. The BB versions were then released in 1982, which not only retained the improvements of the B, but also had the safety deactivate the trigger, added more serrations on the slide as well as white dot and post sights. Then around 1988, the BB variant was replaced by the F variant, and later the FS variant around 1990. In short, "BB" signifies the second improvement to the design. Think of it sort of like "A2" on modern firearms. (Votesmall (talk) 21:44, 27 March 2024 (UTC))
