The recently introduced Beretta Nano (the company's smallest 9 mm yet designed for concealed carry) turned a lot of heads at Media Day at the Range during SHOT Show 2012, and American Rifleman Editor-in-Chief Mark Keefe was no exception.
Thanks to a removable sub-chassis, the Nano can be easily modified with replaceable grip frames, and is about as simple to disassemble and maintain as they come. Sights can be removed effortlessly with a hex wrench, and an ambidextrous magazine release contributes to the usability factor for both right- and left-handed shooters.
Watch video as Keefe puts some rounds downrange and walks you through the unique features of this single-stack pistol, as well as others not so unique. Hint: Glock's patent is up on the articulated blade on the front of the trigger.
