    Beretta Nano



    Didn't know if anyone had seen this I just got the email about it. Gee that trigger looks very familiar from somewhere.

    I like the fact it has simple user adjustable sights.

    My walther has a glock type trigger. It seems everyone is making the single stack 9mm that glock should be.

    That's a heck of a price!

    There have been at least 2 other threads on this gun - lots of buzz about it.

    Bottom line for me is that it is slightly larger and heavier than a Kahr PM9/CM9, so I don't have a need for one. A bit too large for the pocket role, IMHO. Otherwise, seems like a nice option.

    Beauty is really in the eye of the beholder...I think it looks just fine.
    Granted, Kahrs are easier on the eyes, and Kimber's solo is better still (though a nightmare in other ways).
    Let's wait and see how the nano will do in the areas of reliability, trigger, shootability, etc.

    There's been a few discussions on this since it was previewed. One of them here: Beretta Nano - redux

    I need to find a gun attractive in order to get my interest.
    Beretta 92? Check.
    Sig 225? Check.
    1911? Check.
    Desert Eagle? Double check.
    Seecamp? Triple check.

    Beretta Nano? Bzzzzzz.

    Beretta Nano observations and specs

    I have not seen one of these guns, but I went to the Beretta website and looked at the picture and specs. It appears to be similar to the other polymer frame 6+1 capacity 9mm guns on the market. My main consideration in purchasing one of these would be reliability and safety. Small guns can be unreliable, so I like to have one that has established a good reputation in this regard. And for pocket carry I value safety very highly. This gun appears to have a Glock-like safety arrangement with a hinged trigger and no external safety lever. I would personally require a good holster in that case, either in the pocket or wherever else it is carried.

    But 6+1 9mm guns can be very useful and concealable, and Beretta has a good reputation, so I would consider one of these. Here are the specs:

    Caliber - 9mm
    Model No. - JMN9S15
    Overall Length - 5.63”
    Overall Height - 4.17”
    Overall Width - .90”
    Barrel Length - 3.07”
    Sight Radius - 4.92”
    Sights - 3-Dot Low Profile
    Frame Chassis - Stainless Steel Insert
    Grip Frame - Technopolymer
    Slide Material - 4140
    Slide Finish - Pronox
    Capacity - 6 + 1 Rounds
    Weight Unloaded - 17.67 oz
    MSRP - $475

    The "de-activates the guy" safety thing you need a ballpoint pem to work just makes me loose interest.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of it. When that video posted that was one of the first things they showed. I didn't even bother watching the rest.

    If there's a safety on a gun I at least want to be able to operate with my hands.

    The question that you have to assume Glock has asked is....would a tiny single stack Glock 9mm still be the Glock that everyone loves?

    As they say "Beauty is in the eye of thee beholder", but the main thing to look at is how well will it shoot and is it easy to carry. At $400.00 dollars it looks like a winner.

    I would think so. The G36 seems to have enough of a fan base. I would bet they can repeat with a 9mm.
