Just inherited a BEAUTIFUL 1959 model 75 Beretta Jaguar. Thing shoots flawlessly and have not had any problems with it at all. It's in great condition, and I want to keep it that way. Anyone have any clue to it's value, and any suggestions on keeping it up? I am relatively new to firearms, owning only this, a Glock 27, Marlin 336c, and a Japanese Arisaka type 99.

Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys...

New to firearms?? You have an amazing collection to start. Sorry I'm of no help with the Jaguar.

That's a nice pistol, it looks a lot like my Beretta Model 100 but mine is .32 ACP. I've seen these from 400-500.

Good deal. I feel very fortunate to have inherited such a well-kept pistol. Just need some tips on keeping it up. It literally looks and feels brand new. The original owner never used it much. This and my 1957 Marin 336c chambered in 35 Remington make a nice couple of 1950's manufactured guns.

Thanks for the replys everyone. If anyone has any tips for maintaining it, let me know.

Very nice! The older ones have the round safety switch. If you shoot it much, you might want to stick with standard velocity rounds, as I'm not sure how well those will handle the high-velocity stuff that's so prevalent nowadays. I haven't fired my Jaguar in years because it started developing an ejection issue that I think was brought on by the higher velocity stuff.

Nice! I dream about finding a pistol like yours in the sales case of a gun shop. BTW, is your Jaguar a steel frame or an alloy frame?

Dont use crap screwdrivers on any of the screws, and dont turn a screw unless you know what you are doing.
