    Brutus' Description

    The BM59 is the final version of the M1 Garand. With US assistance the Italian government began manufacturing the Garand rifle in the late 1950’s. In order to modernize the Garand and transition to the 7.62 NATO caliber Beretta developed a top quality magazine fed rifle based on the Garand which was designated the BM-59. This rifle was easily considered the equivalent of the US M14 and by utilizing many Garand components it was very economical to place into production. The BM59 was the primary issue rifle by the Italian Army into the 1990’s and is still in use by the Italian Navy. 

    These particular rifles are actually MK4's models that had been rebuilt with a standard rifle stock when they were pulled from service in the early 1980's. The MK4 was the squad automatic weapon variant of the BM59 and originally had a pistol grip stock similar to the M14E2. As we understand these rifles were reconfigured as infantry rifles retaining the unique MK4 flash hider and the winter trigger was removed. Supposedly these were for foreign third world Salos that never materialized in the 1980's. These rifles had no provision for the bayonet. We have been told that this muzzle break variation is quite rare and less than 2% of the kits we have worked with have had them. The break is shorter and thinner than the standard and not designed to launch rifle grenades.

    Note- Original metal parts on these may exhibit slight scratches or bluing wear from storage but images are actual photo's and these are excellent overall.
