    Beretta M1918 Semi-Auto Carbine 9mm Glisenti

    Hello experts,
    I need your help with the rifle I just got from the owner for evaluation.
    Beretta M1918 9mm Glisenti, 12" barrel, unmodified semi-auto, upper feed, no magazine.
    Shoot from open bolt. Mechanically all looks ok. Fair condition.
    This is not SBR rifle, grandfathered due historical value with ATF confirmation mail.
    Please help me to find any information about value of this rifle, so we can decide about next steps.

    Thanks in advance

    What does the ATF letter classify this as?

    Is it original open bolt semi auto built prior to 1982 or a rebuild? According to current ATF regulations, any weapon that fires from an open bolt is considered a machine gun regardless of whether this weapon is actually capable of fully automatic fire unless it was manufactured and imported prior to 1982. Barrel length is immaterial for machine guns.



    I cannot find any reference to Beretta producing a model of 1918 semi automatic carbine. There was a model of 1918/30 that was factory semi-auto but fired from a closed bolt and had a bottom feeding magazine. This is unlike the firearm you describe. I would be certain of its legal status before attempting to sell it.

    This is the most recent sale of a semi auto Beretta 1918/30 that I can find (note that it is a closed bolt firing gun):

    I am FFL dealer. From ATF perspective all looks ok, even if it is open bolt (made 1917 or 1918, pre-production version, semi-auto carbine).
    They inspect item and send confirmation letter. This is Beretta 1918 ans not 1918/30. Look very similar to the Beretta M1918 SMG Photos Forgotten Weapons. I just need to find out what value of this item to decide what to do. Any collector I asked, know nothing about this specific firearm

    This is the carbine with a knurled tubular cocking piece wrapped around the receiver?

    Sounds a lot like a model 1938 submachine gun. If so it is full auto and illegal in most countries.proceed carefully!

    This is 1918 and not 1918/30 or 1938. Top feed. Semi-Auto. With big screw on the top end of the receiver. Shells extract via hole on the bottom of the the stock
