Beretta Pico Info

Super thin, ultra concealable, and easy to configure, the Beretta Pico sets a new standard for the micro compact carry pistol. The Pico is the thinnest .380 auto made by a millimeter. The Pico’s snag-free slide and frame is a true 18 mm at the widest point. The grip frame, sights, and caliber are all simple to modify. (It can go from a .380 to a .32ACP by changing the barrel.) Extremely soft shooting with a double action trigger, the Pico is easy to control with its smooth, tip-to-parallel, straight line action. The removable, serialized sub-chassis and modular frame feature simple disassembly for easy cleaning and customizing. The dovetail quick-change sights can be adjusted or replaced by the user. Light, durable, and easy to draw from concealment, the Pico brings all the reliability and quality of a Beretta to bear on its standing as the leader of a new generation of concealed carry firearms.

    The magazine-release lever on the Beretta Pico .380 fits flush into the trigger guard and frame. It is ambidextrous and is operated by pushing downward, rather than into, the grip.

  • Gun Review: Beretta Pico
    The part with the serial number, hammer, trigger, and slide rails in the photograph above is actually the “firearm” for government purposes. Beretta calls it the “chassis,” and it pops right out of the frame like... it does on the Nano. This means that the grip frame is nothing more than a piece of plastic. In the case of the Pico, though, you’re basically limited to .380 or smaller calibers as the magazine slides up through the chassis between the trigger bars. A pair of legitimate, 3-dot sights grace the Pico’s slide. They’re fairly short and smooth to inhibit any sort of snagging, but they’re real sights, which is something not found on many pocket pistols. more

    The Beretta Pico boast the slimmest frame of any .380 pistol currently on the market. This makes the Pico very easy to conceal. The Beretta Pico comes with two magazines (see image above). Each of these magazines hold 6 ...rounds. The first magazine has a flat base. The second magazine has an extension for your bottom finger. It was able to use either magazine with the pocket holster without any issues. And found the magazine with the extension a lot more comfortable to grip. It felt really good in to hand. more

    Great little gun. Needed a bit more breaking in than my other guns, but it shoots really well. Fits easily into my pocket and the Baretta pocket holster hides any outline of the gun. Amazing engineering by Baretta. It's ...as slim as a gun can be with nothing to get caught on the draw. more

    Really surprised at how much I enjoy this pistol. As a LTC holder, having a small pocket pistol is important for me. Not only does this pistol fit into the front pocket or IWB and completely disappear, it draws great! I ...was concerned about the super-small grip, but haven't had any trouble holding onto the pistol with the 300 target rounds I've put through it so far. In fact, it somehow is less snappy than other 380's I've shot. With the 'real' 3-dot sights on this pistol, I shoot better with this 380 pocket pistol than any other pocket pistol I've ever owned! in fact, at 7-15 yards, I'm as accurate with slow fire as my larger pistols. Also, having the option to add night-sights is very attractive to me and may do the upgrade at a later date. The trigger is amazing. there is zero grit and the long consistent pull is perfect for how I like to carry with a live round in the chamber. Also, since it is hammer fired, I can practice dry firing without the need to pull the slide back each time. (If you do this, be sure to buy snap-caps to protect your firing pin!) Many have complained about the European style mag release not being able to operate at it with a single hand. However, I have a different view of it. With pocket pistols with button releases, I have occasionally had the magazine pop out in my pocket or inside the waste band. That's really concerning to me and I would go through a lot of holsters trying to find one that was thick enough to prevent that from happening. With this European mag release, I have zero concern about the mag popping out. I have no trouble with a slower mag drop to have the assurance of a fully loaded magazine secured in the gun with no chance of unintentional release. Though the extended grip magazine is great for target practice, It is not practical for the conceal-carry situations I carry it and would have preferred if Beretta designed it with exchangeable base plates so I could swap out the base plate on it. I enjoy shooting it with the extended magazine but believe training with the same setup I will be carrying in is more important. So I forgo the extended magazine. Additionally, the zero snag edges are for-real. Beretta did an excellent job make the gun specifically for deep cover conceal carry scenarios. I've seen many people complain about the slide being hard to pull back and the slide stop not being able to be used as a slide release. This is an important point. If you are unable to reliably operate the gun, it is not for you. I've had no trouble pulling back the slide and personally believe sling-shot method is fine so the slide stop doesn't bother me. I"m just super stoked, Beretta made a 380 this small with the a last-round-open design. The-grip color change option is cool, but not my thing. But you can pick up a multiple of colored grips on Beretta's website for only $18 right now. That's crazy! What I am interested in is that the internal laser designed into the grip. As a lefty, their ambidextrous design, and internal nature of the unit, assure reliability. That's most important to me on a gun that I am literally depending my life on, and I believe Beretta has delivered on that promise with this little 380. only detractor for me, is the magazine base plate design which is super small. If you are looking for a reliable, deep cover, configurable conceal carry pistol, it's worth checking out the PICO. Great job Beretta. you continue to get my business. more

    Bud's part was excellent as always. However, after the first trip to the range, the Pico's trigger would stick to the rear and not reset. It is going to have to go back to Beretta.

    The Pico never gets much love, but it's my EDC. That said, it needs a bit of TLC before being 100{723013a7f5f204f232e366be3a4955ec3452b93eb74a8274e1ea2eb3db1cfa73} reliable and shootable, which i knew coming in, but got ...it from Buds for a steal of a price (Thanks!). After polishing all trigger surfaces and feed ramp, I removed the inner hammer spring. This reduces trigger weight significantly (from 8 or 9 to about 5lbs), and substantially removes trigger grit caused by the inner rubbing the outer hammer spring whence compressed. I have not had a failure or light hit to strike primer yet, but if i do... it's DAO, so just pull again. No big deal. This was my first online gun purchase and it was a pleasure to do business with Buds. more

    The quality expected from the oldest firearms manufacturer in the world but that dam magazine release is hard to release. If they fix the magazine release it would be the ultimate pocket carry gun.

    Thanks to Buds for the great deal and seamless transaction. I was interested in a pocket pistol and after looking at the many possibilities settled on the Beretta Pico. The negative reviews on the internet were fascinati...ng and I was so curious that I had to buy one. And I'm glad I did. Its a great little package , and I do mean little ! Mine is a third generation model which has several changes from the first generation. The Gen 3 has a lighter recoil spring , lighter trigger spring and the grips on the slide are easier to grasp. So all the issues the I saw listed in the reviews have been addressed and I think its a ripping little pocket pistol. I've run a few hundred rounds through it and have had no difficulties at all. I tend to target shoot at 25 yards and although its a tiny gun , I can stay on paper at 25 yards. We're talking a 25 yard NRA slow fire pistol target. Not bad at all ! Closer in it will actually group with the right ammunition. I confess to reloading for my .380's . I have a few of them . I like the round. So I've tried several different projectiles in the Pico and they all fed with no problems at all. Its good to have a target round and with some practice you will find the Pico to be a worthy little gun. For carry always go with factory ammo of your choice. The Pico is a great addition to the .380 family. A great gun that can be carried effortlessly and that functions very well. more

    I bought this for my wife, and she said that she loves how small, slim, light, and smooth it is is, because it allows her to carry it in her belly band, garter, pocket, or small purse with easy, and most importantly, com...fort. We took it to the range this past weekend, and fired four different types of ammo through it without any failures to fire or cycle. We fired Hornady Critical defense, Remington golden saber, Sig Sauer V-Crown, and Winchester white box. She was able to operate the slide release without any trouble, shoot one handed (left and right), and had satisfactory accuracy at 7 yards. I will say that the pistol is picky about chambering the first round if you do not rack the slide properly or fail to sharply release the slide catch. However, the Pico was didn’t care how you chamber the first round after the first 50 rounds, so you may want to consider a break in period before just carrying this firearm straight out of the box. This is a double action only hammer fired pistol, so it will require skill to be accurate at the range, but it’s perfect for pocket carry with a round in the chamber, because there is no safety to fumble with, the trigger is heavy with a hammer, so it will not get caught on something and fire easily like a striker fired pocket pistol could. My wife and I believe that this is a great purchase for the quality of Beretta, accuracy for a pocket gun, peace of mind it will fire only when we want it to, and the price for a good gun compared to other similar pocket pistols. more

    Perfect gun for what it is made for
    I am a veteran shooter and former LEO of many years. The Pico is perfect if you use it for what it designed for...a CCW meant for close range and maximum concealibility. The strong slide, flat release lever and strong tr...igger pull are all MADE to be that way. This is not a range run for target shooting. It is a ultra-thin, very light, “pocket pistol”. It performs very, very well for its intended purpose. In effect, it’s operating system is, in regards to safety, much like a revolver. There are no safeties. The strong trigger pull, like a “belly gun” revolver is designed this way to prevent accidental discharges. The magazine? If you are looking for a “fast change” magazine don’t buy this guy. Again, it is not designed to do this. It’s accuracy and stopping power are adequate for its intended purpose. I carry mine, as a second, back up gun in my front pocket. In some cases, where it’s mot practical to carry a larger “duty” gun, I carry it, again in my front pocket, no holster, as my primary. Yes it takes some getting used to. As recommended by Beretta, it’s best to lock the slide on an empty chamber, insert a loaded magazine and then release the slide to chamber the first round. It’s a Beretta. Like virtually ALL new models there have been a few design hiccups. The updated models are top notch. Academy has the best price on this quality gun you will find anywhere. Buy with confidence. more

    A great gun if you know guns
    I have had by Pico 2 years now and love it. If you read the description you know it will have a heavy trigger (its now striker fired) you must load the spring to fire, each time. If you expect a no felt recoil, the racki...ng springs will be tight. Accuracy and concealability is great. This is why I bought it. more

    Personally I don't care to much for the Pick..I ran about 20 rounds of magtech through it, which was flawless. The issue I have is it's difficult to rack the slide, and even more of a headache to drop the mag...it seem w...ell put together, perhaps it will loosen up after a 100 rounds or so... more

    Gun fits in my hand great. Fit and finish are excellent. However, I haven't had a chance to fire it because the firing pin was broken. Seems some of the older ones have weak firing pins that can break after dry firing on...ly one or two times. Recommend ordering a back up firing pin as well with this gun just in case. I haven't contacted Beretta yet since their hours are most inconvenient for someone living on the west coast. I have found it to be less of a headache to order a new firing pin than to call them up and chance having to send my gun in for "repairs." I chose the Beretta because I actually love the way it looks and many reviews say it is one of the lightest shooting .380s out there without breaking the bank. Many people harp on the magazine release and the slide release. The slide release does take some getting used to and requires a good thick fingernail on your thumb to work otherwise just drop the magazine first. The magazine release just takes some practice to operate one handed but I think it was intentionally designed for two finger, off hand release. The trigger is long but smooth. The only problem I have with it is it feels too close to to my palm. I have medium sized hands with long, boney fingers that seem to just wrap around the gun forever. This may be a common thing with these little pocket guns or the price for getting the grip so slim idk you be the judge. All in all I think this is a great gun other than the firing pin being dead out of the box. From what I read online the issue seems to be fixed in later runs of the gun. Even though I got the "upgraded" version it was still affected by the weak firing pin issue. Cant wait to shoot it. more

    I purchased the Pico for three reasons. 1. The size for Concealed Carry (it REALLY disappears, even with the extended magazine IWB). 2. How easily it breaks down. And 3. Because of the ability to interchange the chassis.... My hands are not very big, but even so it is still a hard gun to get a good purchase on to shoot. I carry with the extended mag and keep the regular mag loaded in my pocket. I would not want to carry the other way around, and will be purchasing another extended mag to replace the regular one. It is proving to be as difficult as I expected at the range, as it is a VERY small and lightweight pistol. However, with practice, I believe that will be alleviated. Overall, I am happy with it, and it is an EDC for me with Hornady Critical Defense, 90 gr FTX. I haven't had a problem with either them, or Sellier & Bellot, 92 gr FMJ, at the range. more

    Good, not great
    We bought this gun as the girl friends first hand gun. Shot a couple dozen rounds through it. It jammed on ejection immediately. Several rounds later it stopped jamming. Besides that, it’s what you’d expect from a su...b compact .380. Small, light, but up for the job. Never had to “break in” a gun to get it past jamming, but let it be said this one might need a lube before even firing. more

    Good little gun
    Let me start by saying this is a good gun, but probably not a good gun for beginners. The trigger pull is fairly stout, but experienced shooters will consider that an asset for a pocket gun. An accidental trigger pull wo...uld be extremely unlikely. I bought this because I was looking for something easier to conceal when the weather gets warm and I'm wearing less clothes. Reviews were mixed, but I also was aware that Beretta had done a major redesign of the gun, realizing they didn't get it right out of the gate. I'm happy to say that I haven't regretted the decision for a moment. It's super small and light and easy to conceal, and it actually shoots surprisingly tight groups for such a small handgun. Quality of manufacture is outstanding, and field stripping for cleaning is a breeze. Is it my favorite gun? No. Am I happy to have it when I'm not wearing a coat or a long shirt? You bet! I bought it with a purpose in mind, and it serves that purpose perfectly. I checked out everything else in the class...glad I picked this one. more

    I recently purchased a Beretta Pico from Bud's Guns. The product was delievered and paper work completed by a Bud's Guns preferred firearms dealer. After completing the transaction and arriving back home, I noticed a few... scratches and a slight scrape on the front of the slide and front sight. It appears that the gun was possibly dropped or improperly packaged and damaged in transit. I did purchase the damage,loss and extended warranty when I ordered this gun from Bud's. Upon calling Bud's and explaining this situation, I was informed that this type of damage is not covered and that I should have examined this gun more carefully before accepting the gun. Next time I surely will but I am still some what disappointed since I myself did not damage it. more

    Wow, placed order Sunday afternoon, gun was here Tuesday about 11:00AM. Wanted a pocket gun that was dependable. This fits that build. It has worked every time without problems. Even handled my reloads without complaints.... It is not a range gun and it will punish your trigger finger but that is not a problem. The long hard trigger pull makes it hard to group but it is a belly gun anyway. All and all I am really pleased. more

    Picked up yesterday and ran some cheap range ammo and some Hornady Critical Defense through it. Great fit and finish, accurate. I have pretty large hands, but was still able to draw and shoot well with it. Recoil pales i...n comparison to LCP. Just a really nice gun like you expect a Beretta should be. I have several Beretta, S&Ws, and Rugers and lover them all. Have wanted a micro .380 for a while, but this is the first one that had sights that I can actually see. LCP seems much weaker and sights are useless. Bodyguard didn't do it for me either sight wise or feel wise. The stainless of the Beretta is top notch. Ability to shoot very hot ammo a plus. Buds had this thing at my FFL, which happened to be another Buds that didn't have one in stock in 2 days. My third online order from them and always smooth. more

    This gun is very small and very hard to operate. Because it has no safety the springs in the pistol are very stiff. I cannot operate this pistol and therefore is useless to me. I do have other pistol that I can easily op...erate and do on a regular basis. Beretta says that there is nothing they can do. There is something I can do and that is purchase from another company. more

    I have to confess I never gave the .380 ACP a second thought until recently. My experience with handguns had always been .22LR for plinking and 9/40/357 for all other fun and protection. That changed when my wife started... having more serious issues with arthritis and subsequent weakness in her hands. For the better part of 20 years she'd carried a Ruger SP101. It fit her really well, but even the light .38 Special loads became too much, so we started looking at other options. The requirements were basically: easy to operate, good ergonomics, tolerable recoil, and reliablity. Simple, right? Not so much when you're dealing with certain physical deficits. We concentrated on studying compact and subcompact 9mm products, but none quite fit the bill. And then a friend loaned me his Pico. I had my doubts, especially before picking it up in my hands. Nevertheless, I knew the Beretta brand, since I own a Model 92, so I committed to trying it for a week. For my wife, it was love at first sight. For me, it was love at first shot. Even though I have very large hands, I soon found my grip and was quite comfortable. My wife did the same, and there was no holding her back. Her training at the range proved almost effortless _and_ painless! She has absolutely no trouble racking or changing magazines. I, on the other hand, had a slight learning curve, because my mitts just didn't naturally fit the controls the way they do my HKs. Smaller IS better, at least in this case. We concluded .380 ACP was a viable option. After reducing the choices to the Pico and the SIG P238, Beretta won out. It's easier for her to handle the Pico, and the price? Well, hundreds of dollars less is compelling. Having gained more experience with the Pico lately, I've begun to think this little baby fits the bill for ME perfectly for CCW scenarios where I need to dress up or dress lightly. It's a relatively new investment, so I can't speak to long-term reliability. However, I can say there have been no glitches like FTE/FTF with a decent variety of ammunition. more

    Beretta Pico
    I initially bought this gun for my LTC. There isn't much of a recoil, and my shots were very accurate. The slide is extremely difficult to pull back, and like many others, my front sight fell off the first time that... I shot. I ended up using a different gun for my LTC, and wish I would have read some reviews before I purchased, as I probably would have gone with a different .380. more

    As always, Bud's Gun Shop is the best. Got the gun in a few days, got exactly what I ordered. My first impression of the Beretta Pico is good. I've read negative reviews all over the place but decided to give the Pico a ...try simply because it had everything I wanted in a tiny easy to conceal pocket pistol. I wanted the DAO trigger and the double strike capability and I wanted it to be small. Well let me start by saying this thing is SMALL! My first concern was how hard is it to operate the slide. Beretta claims they've made that easier and I think they have. When compared to the Kahr CW380, it's much easier. I'm 70 years old and have mild arthritis in my left hand and I was still able to operate the slide with little problem. My 70 year old wife however struggled to lock the slide open. The next concern was the trigger. It's long which is what I wanted, but not too long. It's actually quite smooth. Take down is the easiest of all the pistols I own. I haven't been to the range yet so I'll update when I shoot it a few times. more

    I put the pico on laway when it was 195.00.I picked it up at buds about 3 weeks later.When I got it home I cleaned and lubed it ,and loaded up the two mags.The trigger pull is about 12 pounds,but with no safety you donot... want a light trigger.I had no ftf orfte at all.I found out the hougue handall grip for the s&w bodyguard fits great with only a little trimming.When in a pocket holster,it looka like a wallet.It is very thin and sights are great for a small gun.So the gun is small,fits in a pocket,comes with two mags,has a stainless slide works great and is easy to take apart and clean.Every time I deal with buds I get great service.Buy this gun,rebate of 50.00 from beretta is on till end of December. more

    I was looking for a 380 I could carry in my front pocket. I almost spent the extra $ for the Sig P238 and I kind of wish I had. The Pico is tiny and slim and really carries easily in my pocket. It is easy to break down a...nd accurate to shoot. This is what it is made to do so I am not knocking the gun or Beretta. Yes, it is uncomfortable to shoot and though I always practice with it at the range I am always glad to put it down and pick up my Ruger or Springfield. This is to be expected due to its nature. The only real disappointment I have is the fit and finish. It was cheaper than the Sig Sauer because it is cheaper than the Sig Sauer (a gorgeous gun). Oh well, it does what it does without any failures to feed or jams. I{363ceea37044427d110cd3f5da6d8a2cd2a654e829df94db15a7b148aff8b5f4}u2019m satisfied but disappointed. more

    Great little gun - I was looking for a "pocket" gun and had looked at the Ruger .380 - this had so much more for about same dollars - stainless slide, polymer frame, 2 mags, case, adjustable sights. Good experience with ...Bud's as always, I took the pistol out to the range, with knowledge of previous reviews - trigger pull is long and stiff, but easy to get used to, sights clear, fired with no jams either with FMJ and hollow points, good groups - only negative comes from my big hands and fingers - trigger finger gets pinched between trigger and trigger guard on each shot - shorten trigger or enlarge guard. more

    This is the first gun I ever purchased; it was recommended to me by a friend that has gun experience, and knew I was considering a conceal carry handgun. We immediately took the Beretta PICO to the range and shot it at v...arious close ranges. I found the gun straight forward to use & it was not intimidating as a first handgun. The cleaning & field stripping was also uncomplicated and I feel competent that I can manage this firearm. It is a compact gun, so for people with larger hands it "may" feel cumbersome, however as a woman, I felt this gun was perfect and would conceal safely and easily. Purchasing through Buds Gun Shop was amazingly simple and the gun arrived in a timely fashion. I am satisfied with this purchase and will recommend it to others looking for this type of handgun. more

    After having this gun for 3 months and firing over 800 rounds thru this little gem, I needed to give my honest feedback. It should be stated that this is not a gun for the inexperienced shooter. This gun prioritized sli...m essence and superior ergonomics for carry, so the long trigger and design of the mag release and slide stop require someone who can adapt. With that said, Beretta has knocked title out of the park and upgraded the original design, and it is now what I would consider the PERFECT pocket 380. 1. It is VERY soft shooting even with HOT loads. I have put many lead and plated reloads thru it that send a 100gr bullet at around 980fps, and this gun takes it like a champ. Just be careful with OAL as mag is on the snug side and there is little barrel leade to work with. 2. It is accurate! I have no problem keeping most loads under 2 inches standing up from 10 yards. I ring my 6 inch plate every time at 25 yards. Can't ask for more from a pocket gun. 3. Is is Modular! Want to stipple the grips or mess with the frame? Go for it, as the serialized part is the trigger group and Beretta makes the plastic frames in many colors, and one with flashlight or laser and you can swap it out in seconds! 4. If you like to tinker and DIY repairs, spare parts can be bought online if you want to do stuff yourself. Otherwise Beretta has fantastic customer service. I had an issue with the trigger not going into battery from shooting messy lead handloads and the bullet lube built up in the chamber till the gun wasn't going completely into battery and I thought is was the guns fault. Well called Beretta, next day UPS picks up package for free, and 2 weeks later it was back in my hands. Can't beat it. 5. It has the best sights of a gun this size. Period. And to make it even better Beretta sells Trijicon night sights for around $100. My gun has been reliable, feeds XTP hollow points I keep for defense, is so tiny and slim I can carry it in pocket or waistband all day and forget its there, is accurate enough I can trust it to put rounds where they need to go, and I just love it. I may get a second one just because. I carry it every day and trust it with my life. more

    This is a nice little gun. You can't go wrong with Bud's. I ordered this little guy and in a couple days it was shipped and ready to pick up in town. Service is better than you would expect these days. I looked over this... little pistol and was pleased with the looks of it. Took it out back with some hollow points and round nose to see how it shot. The hollow points didn't feed right twice in about twenty shots. Might have been the ammo. Then I shot about twenty round nose and it fed and shot perfect. Plus it made a nice tight group on paper. I like the extension on the magazine to help hold it in your hand. This is a perfect ankle holster gun. Small enough to not notice and light enough to carry and forget it's on. So to me this is the right little pistol at a very good price. Thank you Bud's. more

    I like this little gun. It is not for everyone so it is understandable that the reviews will be mixed. The engineering and build quality are fantastic. Advantages are its modularity, stainless steel construction, quality... sights, and tiny size. The disadvantages are the long double action trigger and the abomination of the magazine extension. I don't mind the first and the second can be fixed with a file or dremmel. Mine has been 100% reliable and was paired with a Desantis pocket holster. Overall, I think this is a great gun for experienced shooters who want a good quality pocket pistol. more

    Dealing with Bud's was a good experience as usual. This little Pico is a great value at this price. I've put a couple hundred rounds of both fmj and jhp through it with no malfunctions at all. This gun is very thin and l...ight. It makes a great backup or primary. I don't feel under gunned when I carry it. more

    Female shooter here...quality little gun. Great feel in my small/medium hands. Pretty stiff trigger..long pull but no biggie. Couple hang ups but expected as it needs break in time for sure. Was AMAZED at the accuracy ri...ght out of the box. Little stiff feeling over all but still pleased. Nice little gun for the money. more

    Well I didn't like it at all. (IMO) Trigger pull way to hard for a little gun, hand placement too far down for me. But it never failed to fire. Try one b4 u buy one.

    So far so good. Cleaned it and put 112 rounds through the gun and it shot great. Sights are good for a small pistol. I wear a large glove so my hands are average size and without the extended magazine I get about a one a...nd a half finger grip. The extended magazine I can get a full two finger grip. I prefer the regular magazine though. The recoil is so minimal that it doesn't make a difference either way. The light frame is a nice addition and still very concealable. My only complaint is the magazine release. It's similar to the ones on H&K models but since the gun is so small it's very hard to manipulate. I expected this when I bought it so that's my fault. I don't see many combat reloads with it anyway. Probably use it for a backup gun. All in all I like it a lot. Actually more that I thought I would. Bud's shipping was fast as usual. Thank you. more

    The Pico is excellent if you are looking for slim and light carry firearm. I purchased this from Buds a couple months ago and ran about 230 rounds through it and ran perfectly. I carry this in my pocket and forget it is ...even there. The pico does have a very heavy trigger and a very tight slide and while firing with the flush magazine is kind of hard to hold on to. But does a fine job at the end of the day if you need a small light firearm like I did. The light is very well built. more

    Awesome .380
    I bought it for back-up for my 1911. Couldn't be happier with it! Beretta was quick to remedy the complaints of too heavy of springs. They actually listen to customers and take action to please. Can't say that ...of very many companies! The Pico has quite a few features that make it an ideal for a CCW firearm. I highly recommend one! more

    Had the gun for one Month. First trigger is hard to pull and after 20 or so rounds your trigger finger will hurt it is not an easy gun to shoot. Next to release the clip it takes both hands one to hold the gun the other ...with fingers on each side of the release hard at pest to pull the release. After 50 or so rounds did not notice but the front site fill out (lost) waiting to see if the manufacture will send me a replacement???? Try to pull the slid back takes both hands and pull very hard. Read many reviews before I brought it those reviews must have been written by Beretta folks . Needless to say not happy at all. more

    As a Avid Pocket gun Enthusiast, I have to say that the Pico is top notch quality. Very mild shooter, really nice trigger. This is my second one. first one has been a flawless shooter with mixed ammo, Already have 150 ro...unds through the new one and flawless. These guns will shoot hot ammo better than most pocket guns will shoot range ammo. Steel Frame, modular, Beautiful craftsmanship, tight tolerances, And sleek design.One of the best purchases I have made in this sport. more

    This mouse gun is an absolute Jam o Matic. Rounds hang on feed ramp when chambering, every magazine has at least one failure to feed requiring a smack on the rear of the slide to finish chambering the round. The worst ma...lfunction has to be the trigger failing to reset after firing a round. The trigger will stay locked in the rearward position after firing and chambering a new round and it will not reset until you rack the slide, eject the unfired round and then chamber another round. Has happened with multiple brands of ammo many times. Over 250 rounds through it trying to break it in but still has not helped. Cleaned and lubed it many times with Ballistol which is my go to cleaner/lube and all my other guns run flawlessly with it. I love Beretta, but not this one. Honestly don't want to trade or sell it because someone else may buy it and bet their life on it without trying it out first. Going to try Beretta Customer Service and see what happens. more

    I still haven't had a chance to run this thing yet. Having said that, this gun is pretty slick! Tear down is simple. It has a nice, firm, looonng trigger pull, on account of there being no manual safety. This particular ...model has the integrated light in the chissis, which is very bright, easy to turn on for both lefties and righties, but doesn't seem to have any problems with accidental activation. The only weird thing, that I have yet to get used to is the lever-style mag release, which I have never had before. I'm sure, with practise, this will not be an issue. Overall, a fine gun, easy to conceal, easy to handle, and good looking. I'm sure that as soon as I have a chance to take it out and shoot it, I'll like it even more. more

    pico nothing but trouble
    Where shall I start, at the beginning or at the worst? In the beginning, out of the box, my new gen 2 Pico mag springs did not advance rounds when one was stripped off the clip. Instead, the springs stayed compressed and... the rounds fell out. Then the slide wouldn't go forward half the time under manual operation. After that, the slide stuck 3/4 of the way home 3/4 of the time and had to be hit closed. Those issues took a couple days to work out with continuous manual recycling. Sometime during that time the integral laser decided to come on and go off whenever it felt like it rather than when I clicked the button.The worst: at the range it did not chamber a second round. instead they jammed into the feed ramp[ below the chamber about 90-100% of the time. Using different brands of ammo did not solve the issue. Shooting it over and over and then lubing it more seemed to make the issue worse instead of better.Disgusted i sold it at a loss because Beretta wanted to fix it and I didn't want any part of a pistol that had so many issues right out of the box, since I know a brand that NEVER has an issue out of the box because I have owned 4 of them: the LCPs by Ruger. Plus the triggers of the LCPs can be worked in to become comfortable to shoot, whereas the Pico's trigger pull stays too long and hard for me to accurately shoot.A coworker said the Picos are known have too steep a feed ramp and though I justGoogled that and found nothing on it, my experience tells me to believe it. what I can't believe is that such a reputable company is getting away with this farce of a firearm. more

    Don't like this one at all. It's a little heavy for its size, The slide is difficult to pull back. After the last round is fired the slide locks open and is nearly impossible for me to release. For a 380 it does fire goo...d and at 15 yards hits the target. This gun however will sit in the safe. more

I really thought I would have to break in this Pistol. I cleaned it well, racked the slide about a hundred or so times and bingo. This gun is all steel frame.

    This was my second firearm purchased from Buds, and as before, the delivery service was great. As regards the Pico, I admired the design and construction of the pistol by Beretta USA. And it would be hard to imagine a pi...stol easier to field strip for basic cleaning. However, as a few others have found out, this little cutie is really tough to rack the slide even with the upgraded, more user friendly version that I purchased. I'm a retiree, but don't consider myself weak at all. I prefer to not carry a pistol with a round in the pipe. I didn't feel safe with the prospect of potentially having to quickly rack a round in an emergency. I'm in the process of purchasing a replacement carry gun (through Buds, of course). more

    Just got this Beretta from Buds and the purchase went without a problem. I am very pleased with the Pico. I took it to the range and went through a box of ammo without the first problem. The sights are very good. The tri...gger is a concern and will take more range time to become accustomed to it. Very small handgun makes it easy to carry. I have none of the problems reported by owners of the earlier models. Good job Beretta! more

    If up close & personal describes your need, this little pistol should fill the bill. It's certainly easy to conceal, even in a trousers pocket. I rated it 4 stars for two reasons. One is that the clip with the grip exten...sion could have been made to hold an extra round instead of just being a piece of plastic for a pinky wrap. The second is that the clip release just isn't ergonomic in my hands. It's certainly made to good standards and it's dependable to the small extent I've shot it. It's accuracy is adequate for across a small space; that's all it's designed for. more

    I tried to love this gun.
    I will start by saying that I love Beretta pistols. I have several in 40sw and are a joy to own, carry and shoot. However, carrying a full size 40sw in the summer is problematic and I was looking for a much smaller pisto...l to carry when shorts and light t-shirts are the order of the day. I was hoping the Pico was it. She short version...it is very much not.First, some strengths of the pistol. It is very, very small, lightweight and very, very thin. This pistol is very easy to conceal. The takedown mechanism of a small screw on the frame where you use the edge of the magazine to release the slide is a piece of genius. Also, the fit and finish of the gun is very nice. The pistol is rated for +P which helps those that think that 380 is not enough caliber to carry. Like some other pistols, you can switch out the lower frame with other color and laser options. That is where the good stuff ends. Let me be clear that I am not recoil sensitive and my ability to rack a semi-auto has never been a problem. However, this pistol is very, very hard to rack. There is little to no real grip on the frame and slide and the coating on the slide makes it very slippery. To make the frame snag free, the serrations on the slide have zero bite to them. If you have wet or damp hands, you have no chance of racking the action. This is due to some very heavy springs that I imagine help the pistol maintain it's +P rating. However, this makes the pistol almost unusable in my book. With the lack of a safety, I tend to carry these D/A pistols with an empty chamber and then use the Israeli style of presentation. That is not going to happen with this pistol as 1 out of 4 times, I could not pull from slide back far enough to actually chamber a round or end with an instant misfeed. Or, my hand would slip and almost felt like the gun was going to fly out of my hand. Once you get a round in the chamber, with the slide stop, I was fine. However, the initial chambering of the pistol was always a bit too adventurous. Even using the whole hand covering the slide method (which is not exactly recommended as covers the ejection port), still almost impossible to rack. My other big concern is in a situation where you have to do an emergency clear of a feed jam, I don't think a proficient clearing would even be possible. The second issue is the way the flush magazine meets with the frame in the front. There is a gap between the mag and the frame that does an exceptional job of pinching skin up to and including leaving a very nasty blood blister on my finger. (Note, the extended magazine is fine). I added some grip tape to the frame to attempt to hold into this puppy, but in general, the Pico is a gun that I dreaded to shoot. For me, 40sw or 357 in a snub is a piece of cake compared to trying to shoot this gun. It is just too light and just not enough to hold onto. Yes, I can get 5 inch groups at 10 yards. However, having a gun that I hate to shoot = never shooting it = should not carry it. I had to chance to shoot some other light 380's and while I would never classify as "fun", I could muster through 200-300 rounds. With the Pico, after 50-60 rounds, I was ready to sell the thing. I now have another 380 pistol in the 16 oz range that I love, is easy to shoot and look forward to the range time. Every time. I really think that Beretta was going for the smallest and lightest pistol in 380 that they could produce. However, I think they overshot and created a pistol that while is a piece of cake to carry, is far from a piece of cake to shoot. While I am a big fan of Beretta, I am selling this pistol and will try to forget it ever happened. Once my finger heals. more

    For a Beretta, very poor design, slide is very difficult to rack a round. Trigger is very heavy to pull, for a hammer fire weapon, after ten shot's your finger will be hurting. But, it is very weight, very accurate ..., and very easy to conceal. Would I recommend this, for carry, no! Now if they re did the trigger and slide maybe! more

    Great CCW
    I have been carrying my Pico for about a year now. It is very reliable and accurate. It is great for deep concealment. It is comfortable to shoot--recoil is extremely manageable (more so than my previous pocket .380). Th...e trigger pull is heavy, which is expected for a hammer-fired, safety-less pocket pistol...but it is REALLY heavy. Also, it is tough to retract the slide. It does get better the more you shoot it. Also, Beretta has upgraded the slide and trigger due to this common criticism. They will also upgrade your first generation model for free (I haven't done it yet, but I'm considering it). All in all, I trust the Pico with my life and will continue to carry it. more

    I purchase the Pico about a year ago the first 2 times I fired it I only had one FTE each time, beretta is offering to lighten up the spring on the slide and trigger free of charge, I'm sending mine in within the next co...uple of days, I don't have a problem manipulating the slide although it does take a very good amount of pressure and could be a deal breaker or hindrance to some, I knew what I was buying after checking out a few reviews after knowing what I did about the Pico I feel like I got what I was expecting and really feel the fit and finish is very nice. After reading some reviews on buds I hope others have had their is corrected and also had good luck with theirs, I love the size and weight and tend to leave the bigger ones at home this one's just too easy and comfortable to slip into the small watch pocket of a pair of jeans, one thing I don't like is that beretta offered and advertised a 32 caliber barrel for an additional price, after receiving the Pico I called with expectations of ordering the 32 caliber barrel and was surprised to hear they had no idea when that would even be available, I also got the same answer when I call then two days ago to get the shipping instructions for the upgrade on the Pico, I feel that would be a great package along with once the upgrade is done with the lighter spring and trigger, the Pico is tiny it's like and a good looking firearm which in my opinion I find it very accurate dependable and not uncomfortable to shoot as one might think the thin tiny handle I have no choice but to give it a good rating, I try to put 30 to 50 rounds through it each month along with a few other hand guns at the range and have had no other problems other than as described earlier in the review. I've shot Hornady defense loads and cheap range ammo on most all occasions, I do appreciate when I called beretta the other day they're going to take care of the upgrades free of charge, if it turns out as expected and once they offer of the other barrel I feel this would be an excellent package. more

    Skip this one
    My wife purchased this gun after Christmas as she loved the low weight, smooth lines and the ultra-small frame. When loaded, it is very hard to rack the slide due to the superficial hand serrations on the rear of the sli...de and a very strong spring resistance. In fact, it takes her many attempts to pull the slide far enough back to engage a shell into the chamber. I have stronger hands, but it is a chore for me to rack the slide as well. Also, we have tried five brands of FMJ ammo and so far both cheap and high grade ammo results in many FTF and FTE issues. Loading the last two rounds into the magazine is often a painful experience as well. I have the Ruger LCP and have had NONE of these issues with it, and would highly recommend it as a small and very reliable firearm, if a small 380 is what you are looking for. Beretta has a long way to go with the Pico. My wife was unable to complete her CHL training due to the fact that this gun would not perform. Would love to have my money back. more

    Initial Evaluation
    I bought this yesterday at the after Christmas sale and got it home just in time to take it out and shoot a couple magazines before the sun went down. I took it back out today and between the two days, have put 160 round...s through it now. Rounds were a mix of Herter's 95 gr, Wolf 94 gr, and 100 gr Vet-Made Ammunition, all three in fmj. Either I got really lucky or the stars are aligned just right over Maryland the day mine was built. I have yet to experience a single malfunction, even with the cheap Wolf ammo. There just doesn't seem to be any break in period with mine. I also have a S&W M&P Bodyguard and it definitely had a break in period with multiple failure to feed, failure to eject malfunctions. The Bodyguard is also very picky about what it will fire on the first strike. Cheap bulk ammo often requires that you restrike the primer with a second hammer fall for it to fire. It likes Hornady Critical Defense but it's nice to be able to break in and practice with the cheap stuff. This Pico eats anything I feed it so far, without choking. more

    Once I got this little gun broken in, it's worked flawlessly. It took a couple of hundred rounds including a couple boxes of Buffalo Bore. Especially in the first 100 rounds of range ammo, I was having all kinds of probl...ems with it, but I was expecting that based on articles I've read. Now there are no problems at all. Mag release now easy to hit with my thumb and the trigger has lightened up a bit (it's still heavy, don't get me wrong). I have no problems using this as my every carry pocket BUG, just took some patience. more

    I have small hands so i could shoot a smaller concealed carry. The Pico fits the bill. Easy to conceal in my pocket. Bought it yesterday, ran 50 rounds thru it today. No hitches, but racking the slide with full mag was h...ard for me til i learned to rack the slide then put mag in and charge the gun. I have weak wrists, maybe after more use it will get easier. more

    Nice Small Package
    Tiny gun but powerful enough for personal protection.The sights are innovative as are the selection of different frames.The Beretta promotion for a new holster is still on hold,I hope they don't renege on the deal!

    Berretta Makes another stellar product
    Have a PICO and it is broken in after 175 rounds of ball ammo. Clean and lube generanouly during break in period. Now eats up all ammo including my personal defense loads. Fiocchi XTP and Precision One XTP for personal d...efense. LCR vs PICO? LCR has no double strike capability and has a magazine safety! The loudest sound you will ever hear is a click when you expect a bang. In high stress situations, I don't want to have a gun like the LCR that I might accidently drop the mag and can't shoot the chamber round or if I have an ammo malfunction have to tap,rack, bang vs just repull the trigger. Training is key but you never know how you'll react when needed...period. Training doesn't mean going to the indoor range and shooting 100 rounds at a stationary paper targer at 10 yards for 1 hr in a modified weaver stance two handed. Practice malfuction clearing with dummy rounds and dry firing. Shoot offhand, one handed, holding a bag in other hand. This is where the controlability of the PICO excels! more

    I bought this Pico from Bud's - great service as usual. I've put about 200 rounds through it and it performed flawlessly. The Pico is extremely accurate. I've mixed all types of ammo, FMJ,FN,HP,ETC. Everything I put into... this gun comes out the front end, no problem. What I don't like about the Pico: 1) The trigger pull is awful! You pull the trigger FOREVER before the gun fires. 2) It comes with an finger extension on one magazine that makes it awkward for pocket carry and loading. 3) The magazine is a catch-release. I would prefer a button-release. more

    Bought this gun from Buds right before Christmas. Bud's service and information chain was great as always. Cleaned gun well to remove excessive factory oil. Went to range with gun today. After only 12 rnds, gun had sever...al FTE issues. Changed ammo types three times with same result. Empty casing would end up cross-ways across ejection port, jamming gun. Would fire 2-3 rounds, then jam. Not sure Beretta has this gun fixed. Will clean again and try once more. If same issue will return to Beretta more

    Nice carry piece from Beretta
    I waited for quite a while to find a Pico for sale and Cabela's finally had some. Weighs in under a pound so I don't notice I have it in my pocket. I carry it in a DeSantis pocket holster and it is very accessible and ca...n be drawn quickly.First magazine of Herter 115 gr FMJ I had 3 FTEs. Changed to Hornady Critical Defense and no problems. After a magazine full of those I retried the Herter ammo and had no more problems I believe it was in need of some exercise. Accuracy is very good with 2-3" groupings at 21'. A snap to disassemble, clean and reassemble. I love it almost as much as my PX4. more

    Great CCW
    I have been waiting for the Pico since it was announced at Shot Show. The fit and finish upon receipt were perfect. The mag release was very tight out of the box, but it is loosening up for the better. After cleaning all... the packing grease off, it was off to the range. The first outting, I shot 200 rounds without a failure. It handles much better than my previous pocket 380. The recoil is considerably more manageable. The slide is stiff, which is great for recoil but might be too difficult for some to rack. You really have to torque on it. I was putting 2 in the [paper] chest and 1 in the head at 10 yards no problem. It is very comfortable to shoot and it can be carried in just about any situation. This pistol gets better the more you shoot it. more

    Terrible trigger pull
    I don't believe Beretta put this weapon on the market. The slid release button is flush with the weapon almost flush against the slide you have to take the mag out to rack the slide closed. The mag release button needs t...o be pulled down to release the mag. The trigger pull is terrible felt like a 10# pull. they say 8.The only Pro I found was the three dot sight picture. more

    cool little pistola
    i'd been looking for a pocket pistol in 380 and looked at all the more popular ones, LCP, TCP, bodyguard, etc. what made the pico stand out for me was the double action with restrike function. if one round does not pop, ...simply pull the trigger again, instead of having to rack the slide, eject the misfire and rechamber a new round. you get an extra shot at it instead of loosing a round. also easier to re-pull trigger than to re-rack in a stressful situation.i also liked the adjustable rear sight for windage and the three dot sights.what i didn't like is how hard it is to release the magazine with the hand in the shooting position. i was able to find later that it's really not that hard with a slight repositioning of the hand.the slide lock looked initially like it might cause an issue since it is almost flush with the slide (nice for concealability, though). but after firing and functioning, it's not that hard to release the slide with a full magaize in the well.how does it function/shoot???i had a failure to eject on the first round, then another about three rounds later. second magazine had another two FTE.i had read a review where the guy said he removed one of the recoil springs (the pico has two). he removed the smaller diameter spring and it functioned fine, then reinstalled the spring to fire some +P ammo and it functioned fine. i removed the spring, ran two mags of winchester 95 fr FMJ no problem. put the spring back in and ran two mags of winchester 95 gr hollow point, no problem. i ran the fmj again, went through a hole 50 round box, no further issues. couple days later, ran a 50-round box of monarch (Academy's house brand) brass case, 94 gr. no problems, even though this ammo left my pistol filthy. i think it just needed a very short break-in period.FYI, i read yet another review where the reviewer stated in capital letters NOT TO OPERATE THE GUN WITH EITHER SPRING MISSING. worked out ok for me, but i definately would not run +P ammo with just the one spring...AIM:it was shooting a little low and to the left. might have something to do with the HEAVY double action only trigger. it's not unmanagable, but it is a little tight, but that's what you want in a pocket pistol, right?overall, i like this gun for the reasons i bought it, double action with hammer down (no stored energy in hammer while the gun rides in your pocket), and restrike capability.improvement points:better ergo on the mag release,the slide is a little heavy to rack (i like to slingshot, but and overhand grip works best with this pistol).making the pico a double action/single action and keeping the retrike would make this pistola a 4.5 to 5 star in my book, despite the other minor issues.Oh, while the three-dot sights are great for aim, i did find the rear sights a bit tall and snagging on my uncle mikes pocket holster.by the way, pistol come with a standard flush mount mag and an extended mag. both are 6-round capacity. more
