The Beretta 3032 Tomcat builds on a long line of small and compact pocket pistols for self defense manufactured by Beretta. Specifications The Beretta 3032 Tomcat is a simple blowback pistol with a single and double action trigger mechanism. It is fitted with a frame mounted thumb safety. This safety acts as a slide stop when engaged. The frame is made out of aluminium alloy, the slide and barrel are either carbon or stainless steel. Variants It is available in an "Inox" variant, with stainless steel barrel and slide and the frame anodized to look the same. For a short time a titanium model was also available. It's been reported that only 1,500 of the titanium models were made. There was also a Tomcat Tritium version with tritium night sights. Intended market The Beretta 3032 Tomcat is a self defense pistol, designed for concealed carry. This makes it a good gun for undercover agents, off-duty police officers (or on-duty as backup), and private person CCW. Design advantages The design is simple and small, and very easy to conceal. Light weight when compared to a full sized service pistol. Easy to perform a basic field strip and clean. Inox (stainless steel) version is very resistant to corrosion and allows for low maintenance daily carry. The barrel can be released to pivot on a pin under the muzzle ('tip-up' barrel). This feature allows a round to be inserted into the chamber directly, without manipulation of the slide. Likewise, the chamber can be easily inspected for its load status, or cleared with a fingernail, needs must. Ammunition companies have also improved on the base .32 ACP load, by producing loadings in 60 grain (3.9 gram) hollow-point, yielding higher muzzle velocity and energy.
