    From wikipedia

    FS versions[edit]
    Current production models of .32 ACP and .380 ACP Cheetah pistols are in the FS configuration (e.g. 81FS).[4] In models 81, 82, 84 and 85 they include internal improvements over the F versions that are not visible during casual inspection.

    Lot of confusion between the different Beretta Models. The most outstanding differences to me. Is some had single stack, 8 round magazines. Also some had the manual safety, that was altered to include a de-cocking mechanism. To try decipher the different models you need to be a rocket scientist.

    Most common and readily available in the U.S.. Is the earlier, Model 84. It is the version with the Hi-cap 13 round magazine, and conventional manual safety.
