This next-generation of compact pistols was introduced by the famous Italian weapon manufacture Beretta. First introduced in 1976, the Model 84F is one in a line of weapons sharing similar appearances, dimensions and designs. The Model 84F is chambered for the .380 ACP cartridge and has a double-stacked magazine with a 13 round capacity. The 84F also has a de-cocking mechanism which allows the hammer to be dropped safely from a ready-to-fire position. The 84 shares strikingly similar looks and fabrication methods to that of the world-famed Beretta Model 92. Currently, the Model 84 is marketed as the Beretta "Cheetah".
