The Beretta Nano is described by Beretta as a micro compact carry 9mm pistol. In fact, it compares almost exactly in size to the Kimber Solo Carry Subcompact 9mm pistol.
The serialized part is the removable stainless steel chassis that houses the trigger mechanism and magazine well. This type of modular construction makes the Nano easy to disassemble, easy to maintain, and easy to change the grip frames.
The Nano is light weight and comfortable to carry with a snag free design that makes it an easy to draw concealed carry pistol.
The MSRP is $475.00 but you will start to see the Nano offered for sale more and more as the release date is scheduled for the end of October 2011.

Use only high-quality, commercially manufactured ammunition made in accordance with European CIP or SAAMI standards. Extended use of +P or +P+ ammunition may decrease the service life.
NOTE: If it is desired to carry with a full magazine and a round in the chamber then insert a loaded magazine and pull the slide back and release. This will load a round into the chamber. Remove the magazine to replace the chambered round and re install the magazine. Caution, If you do this you are working with a loaded weapon!
The Nano has a striker deactivation button which deactivates the striker for disassembly without the need to pull the trigger. Why is this a feature? I don’t see the need for this. The user manual states that Long term dry firing your Beretta Nano pistol may result in damage to the striker.
Excessive dry firing may cause damage to the striker assembly, therefore you should use snap caps for practice firing sessions.
The Beretta Nano does have a slide stop but it is on the inside with no external control which makes for a snag free pistol. The slide stop works the same as a pistol with external slide stop. The slide will lock open after the last round is fired and the magazine is empty. To close the slide install a loaded magazine and slingshot the slide. The slide will release when pulled to the rear if a LOADED magazine is inserted.
NOTE: To close the slide on an empty chamber, remove the empty magazine, pull the slide back, and let it close.
NOTE: The slide will release when pulled to the rear if NO magazine is inserted.
NOTE: The Nano has no magazine disconnect which means the pistol will fire whenever there is a round in the chamber even without a magazine installed.
