    I picked this up recently, a M1951 9mm that was licensed (?) by Beretta to be manufactured in Danshway Egypt, early 1950's i think. Predecessor to the Helwan and considered the better gun.
    The Clip was missing parts, but I was able to pick up 2 Beretta clips for it since.

    Well took it to the range yesterday, didn't start out to well.
    First round and the gun jammed with a live round.
    Cleared the jam and it fired two shots fine, then went full auto for 4 rounds, (the time it took to release the trigger).
    Loaded another clip full and it shot fine from there on out, shooting 3 more clips full, no problems...
    I Guess it just needed to be fired. Probably hasn't been shot in a half a century...
