Beretta has long been a respected name in pistols, and this year the company is prepared to add another one to its storied line: the Beretta Pico.

On display at the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, the Pico is a micro compact carry pistol. It's chambered in .380, and enters the market as the thinnest .380 by a full millimeter—all told, it's just 18 mm at its widest point. The grip frame, sights and even caliber (which can be changed to .32) are all simple to modify. It features a removable, serialized sub-chassis and modular frame, which simplifies disassembly for easy cleaning and customizing.

The modular chassis can accommodate a Lasermax Laser frame and be customized with a selection of colored frames.

Technical Specifications:

Model: Pico
Action: Double/Single
Caliber: .380
Capacity: 6+1 Rounds
