The British alternative to revolvers in [[VictorianBritain the late 1880s]], it was more or less a shortened [[MoreDakka quadruple]] rifle, with break-action to reload the barrels like a hunting double rifle or a modern COP 357.

The gun is often looked upon poorly by military users and firearm enthusiasts due to being heavier and having a noticeably fatter grip than a 1911, generally poor performance in dirty conditions, and a perceived lack of stopping power, especially by critics used to the more powerful .45 ACP load from the M1911. It has also, in the past, had issues with faulty magazines (not made by Beretta for cost reasons) and an issue where the slide would occasionally pop off of the frame when firing, most infamous when the Navy [=SEALs=] were training with earlier versions of the weapon (due to a part failing after about a fifth as many rounds through the weapon as it was supposed to last; at least one SEAL [[EyeScream lost an eye to a flying Beretta hammer]], though reports of anyone dying from it are an exaggeration). It is a high-maintenance gun that doesn't get along well with dust due to its open-topped slide. It's generally considered the best example of why ceremonial pistols[[note]]Most European armies have historically regarded pistols as a status symbol for officers that would (maybe) only be fired to execute a deserter. Such pistols were generally small weapons chambered in something like .25 or .32, and generally didn't like dirt, [[RuleOfCool but they looked cool]]. The US and British armies had the experience of the Frontier Indian Wars and the various colonial conflicts of the British Empire, in which pistols were frequently used in combat for offensive and defensive purposes. As a result, YanksWithTanks and BritsWithBattleships usually preferred to pack larger automatics or revolvers that launched ''much'' larger bullets in calibers that start with "4"[[/note]] shouldn't be used as practical combat handguns.

* Seen throughout the ''VideoGame/SplinterCell'' franchise as one of Sam Fisher's signature weapons and favorite sidearm, almost always with a suppressor and an underbarrel device (LaserSight in ''Pandora Tomorrow'', then [[{{EMP}} Optically Channeled Potentiator]] in ''Chaos Theory'' and ''Double Agent''). Even after Sam has left Third Echelon in ''Conviction'' it's still essentially the game's mascot weapon, being the only pistol capable of storing up to four Mark & Execute points

* ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' added it with the 2017 Spring Break event as the [[AKA47 "5/7 AP"]]. Powerful on par with the HandCannon[=s=], and able to pierce all sorts of armor, while also being incredibly concealable, but in return it has a reduced capacity of 15 rounds per magazine with only one spare in reserve, alongside so-so accuracy.

* In WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons retelling of Literature/TomSawyer, Tom and Huckleberry Finn get an entire steamboat full of people to begin shooting each other with them. The results are...less then impressive.

* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' features it as a Fire-element weapon, usable by classes that focus on guns and daggers like the Thief. Given the MedievalStasis setting, it's possibly the most recent firearm to show up in the game.
