Concealability, reliability, and quality are the defining features of the Tomcat, making it a perfect choice for a defensive pocket pistol. Produced in the same factory used to manufacture the M9 pistol for the U.S. Armed Forces, the American made Tomcat is sure to perform in a moment of need. The Tomcat's slide is machined from solid bar stock while its frame is machined from forged, aerospace grade aluminum. Featuring Beretta's unique tip-up barrel design, the user has direct chamber access to load and unload the pistol without the need for slide retraction. The external, frame-mounted thumb-safety provides an additional level of security while carrying in a pocket. Long been known as one of the most reliable .32 ACP pistols on the market, the Tomcat is the favorite for those requiring a reliable, deep concealment pistol. Small enough to fit easily in a pocket, purse, or vest, the Tomcat provides reliability in a discrete package.
