Introducing the Beretta Nano

Beretta Nano With the brand new Beretta Nano, the Italian outfit best known for its world class shotguns has officially entered the concealed carry world.

The Nano will hit the shelves in early October providing yet another micro compact carry pistol option. In fact, it's Beretta's first ever striker-fired handgun, and they were nice enough to give GunsandAmmo.com one of the first looks at what will surely create a big buzz on the market.

The Nano, which will be initially offered in 9mm, is being touted as a modular, ergonomically sound compact that will be comfortable for shooters of all skill levels. The movable, serialized sub-chassis allows the user to easily replace grip frames and disassemble, and the Nano's sights are user adjustable with a 1.5mm hexwrench. No gunsmith needed.

The initial word on the price will be around $475. Some other important info on the Nano:



  • No pulling trigger for disassembly
  • Completely snag free design
  • Totally ambidextrous
  • No external slide lock



  • Different frame sizes
  • Sub-chassis .40 cal capable
  • Frame employs modern thermoplastic technology through the use of fiberglass reinforced technopolymer

Stay tuned for more information from Beretta as they prepare for a full scale launch.
