Beretta BU9 Nano JMN9S15 9mm Luger, $369 (Grade: B- 2015)

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Nano offers a compact design. The action is simple, and operation is straightforward. The Nano never failed to function. Even though the Nano is supplied with a spare magazine, the pistol is not a good buy compared to the less expensive Ruger LC9s, which shoots better as well.

Flat, compact, and snag free, the Nano gets high marks for pocket carry. The only control on the Nano is the magazine release. This is simplicity.
The Beretta Nano was the least accurate of the 9mm pistols tested, but it offers good control when fired offhand.
The Beretta comes apart easily into these components. Disassembly is accomplished by turning a screw located on the right side of the frame (arrow) about a quarter turn. There is no takedown lever.
