SNEAK PEEK: Beretta Pico .380 – VIDEO

Just for the record a “pico” is one-trillionth of any measurement; a picosecond or a picogram—really, really small.

Since the Pico’s predecessor in the Beretta ultra compact line is the 9mm Nano, and a “nano” is one-billionth of any measurement, the new .380 had to be smaller, thus a “pico.” Aside from sharing numerical nomenclature, the Pico and Nano also share basic construction, an interchangeable one-piece molded technopolymer frame (or “chassis”) surrounding a separate stainless steel fire control sub-chassis containing the frame rails, trigger, and firing system.
