The market for subcompact handguns hasn't cooled, and Beretta got involved in late 2011 with its new Nano.
The Nano is an ideal compact carry pistol—it's small, easy to conceal, has a snag free design and still maintains a respectable 9 mm chambering.
Better yet, the gun's serial number is located on its steel chassis, allowing its owner to swap out frames and sights without difficulty. This is a gun that's just begging to be customized to fit individual shooters, and it's that kind of versatility that makes it an easy Gun of the Week addition.
Caliber: 9 mm
Capacity: 6 + 1 Rounds
Overall Length: 5.63"
Barrel Length: 3.07"
Sight Radius: 4.92"
Frame Chassis: Stainless Steel Insert
Weight: 17.67 ounces
