Gordie K., a friend of gun lab, was nice enough to send me some pictures of a Beretta model 57 that he made in semi auto only. This is one of my to do projects and I am excited to see someone accomplishing this. Here are a few pictures of his build.
A friend of gun Lab dropped me a line looking for some information of the magazines that the Beretta model 57 30carbine used.
Here are a set of pictures that I took of the issue magazine.
I hope this helps.
The picture from the post on 11-8 is from the bolt of a Beretta model 1957 carbine in .30 M1.
Here is the write up on it from the book ” The World’s Assault Rifles”. This is another book you should have in your library.
