I don't know how old this video is but that's some interesting hardware.
Is that SMG he refers to as a Beretta really a Beretta? It doesn't look like the Beretta SMG designs I'm familiar with. Looks an awful lot more like a Sterling. The black SMG next to it is a Beretta 9mm SMG.

Yeah I think he has it backwards, the one on the wall looks like a Beretta PM12 and what he is holding is a Sterling.

Correct, I carried a Sterling for five years, wonderful little bit of kit. I also saw a few CZ75's and the built rifle/handgun looks like a Lee Enfield Number one receiver, there's a few Webley's in there as well.

The bloke does talk out of his backside though, I've seen newsreel of Soviet Special Forces carry the shortened AK, although I have no idea if it was carried by Soviet Navy blokes. Also in there is a selective fire Mauser 96, the detachable 20 round magazine is missing.

I'd love a couple hours in there and a Bedford 4 tonner standing by.
