Beretta 1918/30

The Beretta 1918/30 is a semi-auto variant of the military Beretta 1918 submachinegun. It is chambered for 9mm Glisenti, and was used primarily by police agencies. As one of the few factory-produced semiauto only submachine guns, it is of interest to homebuilders looking to convert other guns to semiautomatic only operation.

      Look,no disrespect to your ancestor,but it is virtually impossible to shoot down a
      400 mph aircraft with a pistol caliber SMG.

    I assume Duncan (first post above) is saying his ancestor shot down a Messerschmitt BF-109 as I can’t think of any other aircraft manufactured by Messerschmitt that would have been operational at El Alamein.
    Upon seeing the thickness of the glass used in the cockpit of these fighters in a mueseum, I can assure you no way in hell would this gun or any of its calibre penetrate or even tickle the glass as its literally inches thick. I assume it could take a .50 without the round penetrating although it would smash up the glass and shatter it a bit.
