    I have the baby brother, a 32acp Model 70 with the cross bolt safety.

    IIRC the locking blocks are different and will not interchange.

    Well the man that can answer that question is Wess13.

    He is making the blocks so I am guessing the differences will be noted.

    "When designing another surprising fact came to light, Egyptian made locking blocks are not interchangeable with Beretta made ones.
    The wings of the Egyptian ones are 1MM longer that the Beretta made ones, I except this was done in an attempt to improve service life."


    He posted about the product in August on this forum.

    He also contacted me about replacement blocks I might need.

    Let me know if you find fault with the fitting.

    I received my Beretta M1951 9mm cross-bolt safety Italian Navy single-stack 8-round semi-automatic pistol. I too am a sucker for Berettas. I am seeking at least one spare magazine for the pistola. It seems that the M1951 is rare in the United States. Spare magazines are even rarer. Do the Egyptian, Israeli, or Iraqi models' magazines fit the original Beretta M1951? There are Egyptian magazines for sale on eBay but I don't want to spend the $$ for a magazine that won't fit and operate correctly,

    Any definitive answers from the Texas Gun Talk crew chiefs?

    Have one of those as well. My mom gave it to my dad for his birthday in 1964. He carried it as a BUG when he was a State Trooper. I got it when he died. First handgun I ever shot and it is stupid accurate.
