Summary: The manufacturer’s description and specs, and the average user rating for the Beretta Tomcat pistols.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Beretta Tomcat is chambered in .32 ACP. This tiny double-action pistol features a tip-up barrel that allows the user to easily load a round directly into the chamber without slide retraction. It also assists in the safe clearing of the pistol by allowing a live round to be easily removed from the chamber and the bore quickly checked. Jamming and stovepiping problems are virtually eliminated by the open slide design shared by all small frame Berettas.

Other features include:

  • a barrel forged out of special high-strength steel; precisely rifled for accuracy. The Inox and Titanium models feature stainless steel barrels;
  • a slide machined out of high-strength carbon steel and specially heat treated;
  • a notched rear sight and blade front sight for fast target acquisition (a tritium luminous front sight is available in some countries);
  • a frame-mounted, manual, thumb operated safety;
  • a contoured tang, with the top of the grip area precisely curved and relieved to snugly accommodate the shooter’s hand, thus protecting the thumb web from being pinched by the slide and increasing the pistol control upon firing;
  • a frame made of a titanium alloy, or special aluminum alloy forgings, and anodized black or gray; and
  • a snag-proof design. Smooth contours permit quick, smooth draw.

The Tomcat Inox model has a stainless steel slide and barrel. The alloy frame is gray anodized to match the color and finish of the stainless components. The trigger, hammer, safety, magazine and other parts are blued. All other features are the same as the Tomcat.

MSRP: $435–$555

    I bought one of these from a retired Police officer. I love the gun and inspite of some rumors of frame and or slide problems with the non stainless material I have found it to be a great pocket pistol. It is my understanding that Baretta will replace any failed or damaged (frame or slide) pistols with a stainless model for no charge. I have yet to see any splitting on my gun after a couple hundred rounds. Love the gun and love the feel of the fit in my hand.

    Best pocket pistol ever!! 32acp rounds are a bit expensive, but gun feels and shoots beautifully.
