Well you've got me stumped as to what a Model 100 could be. I looked through Wilson's book, "The World of Beretta", and there isn't any Model 100 of any kind. Perhaps a few photos or more info, such as caliber, vital statistics, etc., to help with the identification process.

Found this on www.gipa.it

The Beretta Model 100 is a version of the Beretta Model 74A 32ACP.
The Beretta Model 100 was manufactured purposely for being sold on the American market.
The Beretta Model 100 was manufactured around the 1970's , approximately 30 years ago.
Today the Beretta Model 100 is not more on the Beretta price list.
I think that you can find the Beretta Model 100 on the second-hand market.

Don't know if you have seen it. Hope it helps.

Josh.

Interesting; after checking several other sources, I found the Model 101, caliber .22 LR, which was based on the Model 70T. According to the 1973 edition of Gun Digest, it weighed approximately 19 oz.; with a 6" barrel it was 9.5" long overall; and the retail price on it was $85.00. You could have an unusual earlier model if it is marked as a Model 100, as all I can find are Model 101 references. I would also be curious as to any importer's inscription on the gun; I believe that Galef and son were the principal Beretta importers here in the US from the early 50's to the late 60's. Then they used Garcia through the mid 70's, until Garcia ran into financial problems of their own. Beretta was out of the US market until they formed their own company in 1977.

Beretta M 100

I have one of these Model 100 pistols. Once you find ammo that cycles through smoothly, it's a nice shooter. Some parts are interchangable with the M 70T but the config on the two pistols is different. For instance, the adjustable rear sight is further back on the M 100.

Bump for an old thread. I always wanted a Model 100 pistol, and recently found one in very good shape. Saw a thread in another forum that said the Model 76 wood target grips would fit this because the two pistols are built on the same frame. As luck would have it, CDNN was selling new model 76 lefty wood target grips (I'm a southpaw), so I took a chance. With very minor fitting, they went on like they were made for the pistol, and fit like they were made for my hands. I still have to find that machine screw for the lower hole, but I'm hoping Home Depot or Ace can help with that.

Beretta Model 100 grip screws

A short follow up for anybody who may swap out the factory plastic for wood grips on the model 100 like I did. The lower grip screw in the factory plastic grips is a coarse-threaded wood screw that just buries itself into the opposite grip internally after it passes through the left side grip. I swapped the factory plastic grips out for the wood Model 76 target grips. Those grips require a long, thin, fine thread pitch machine screw. This morning I discovered that the factory grip screw from my FEG AP-MBP, http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=362144, (the .32 ACP version of the PA-63, with what I think are identical grip dimensions to the PA-63) fit the Beretta Model 76 wood grips perfectly!

I did have to work with the grips a bit because the hole through the wood behind the threaded ferrule in the grip, didn't line up. From the outside of the grip I could screw the FEG grip screw in, but from the inside of the grip it wouldn't line up and thread. I had to open the hole from the inside of the grip just a bit to get it to line up, but the screw now fits perfectly - correct length, the head is the right size, matches the gun, grips, and the style of the other grip screws.
