In the video below, a Syrian rebel shows off his customised Beretta Model 38. The stock has been converted to a pistol grip and the metalwork has been chromed. That is one nice looking gun, although I doubt the owner could hit the side of a barn at 20 yards when firing on full auto with a shoulder stock.
I think the weapon is the ’42 version of the M1938. Max at Guns.ru notes that the 1942 model omits the barrel heat guard/jacket but retained the barrel fluting.
