Beretta Nano 3000 Rounds Review and Update. After shooting over 3000 rounds My Beretta Nano looks great and operates like new. The FTE problem is caused by low quality inconsistent power ammunition. Today’s range session puts the total round count through my Beretta Nano at 3030 rounds. Add an additional 72 rounds fired at Beretta for testing and My Nano has 3102 total rounds fired through it and it performs like new and still looks like new.
After shooting 2580 rounds I had returned my Nano to Beretta Service for evaluation. The Nano had experienced 13 FTE and I wasn’t sure what was causing the problem. Beretta shot 72 test rounds of quality premium self defense ammunition and had no malfunctions.
I just received the Nano back from Beretta service and have cleaned it, lubed it, and took it to the indoor range. Shot 200 rounds of Federal Classic Hi-Shok 115 grain JHP with no malfunctions. Then shot 250 rounds of American Eagle 124 grain FMJ with no malfunctions.
The Nano is a comfortable little pistol to shoot. I shot 450 rounds through it today with absolutely no discomfort. As a comparison, I also shot my Ruger LC9 and there was noticeable discomfort and sting shooting the LC9.
My accuracy with the Nano produced about a six inch groups at 7 yards. After a little practice I got this down to 3 to 4 inch groups. I blame this mainly on the long trigger pull.
The three dot sights could be improved by having a narrower space between the two rear dots
I tried loading one in the chamber with 6 in the magazine. Easy to do. Just insert a loaded magazine, let the slide slam closed loading a round in the chamber. Remove the magazine to replace the round. Remember the pistol can be fired without the magazine. Reinstall the magazine and the Nano is ready with one in the chamber and a full magazine.
My opinion after all this testing is that the FTE were caused by using low cost ammo that has inconsistent quality. For more information about my Beretta nano read my Beretta Nano FTE post.
