The Beretta 80 series (Cheetah) of pistols are compact and semi-automatic designed and manufactured by the Italian company, Beretta.

They were first introduced in 1976 and include models in .32 ACP (Model 81), .380 ACP (9 mm Short) (Model 84, 85 and 86) and .22 LR (Model 87).

Beretta FS Models

Most models are available in FS or standard configuration (e.g. 81FS). This includes a completely restyled trigger guard similar in appearance to the current Beretta 92 models on the market that allow for a full finger hold on the front of the trigger guard.

Beretta 81 and 82 Models

The Beretta 81 and 82 Models were originally chambered for the .32 ACP cartridge. The Beretta 81 had a double stacked magazine with a full 12 round capacity, while the Beretta 82 has a single stacked magazine with full 8 round capacity and resultant thinner grips.

Beretta 84 and 85 Models

These two models were chambered for the .380 ACP (9 mm Short) cartridge. The 84 had a double stacked magazine with 13 round capacity, while the 85 has a single stacked magazine with 8 round capacity and resultant thinner grips.

Berretta 86 Model

In 1986 Beretta first introduced the Beretta Model 86 which differs drastically from other Beretta 80 Models in the series, because the Model 86 has a completely redesigned front end with a tip-up barrel that conveniently hinges in front of the trigger guard. This feature allows the shooter to easily load a round directly into the chamber if the shooter does not wish to operate the slide.

Beretta 87 Model

There are two separate and distinct Beretta 87 models both are chambered for .22 LR. The standard Beretta 87 model (introduced in 1986) is similar to the other models, but the Beretta 87 Target (introduced in 2000) has a much longer barrel and slide (which can accept optical sights) and comes only in single action.
