Beretta Pico Anyone?

Post by One45 » Sun Jun 14, 2015 12:25 pm

Curious if anyone has one and can give an opinion please. I've read they have the usual teething problems.

"Usual"?????

There is no "usual" teething problems. There is it works or it don't.

When someone tells you teething problems it means it don't work so IMO don't buy it.

Would you buy a car if the dealer said it won't work well for the first six month but eventually once broken it should be fine?

Too bad, looking for a pocket pistol and it looked promising.

Hickock45 has a long review on it here. I got rid of all my 380s, but this review has me thinking I'd like to try one again:

I just bought a new Pico today as I was in the market for a pocket gun for times when that is the only carry option. Hitchcock 45's review was one of the reasons I went with the Pico over others.

Make sure you buy a Gen 2 Pico.
They have made some changes to the gun already...

When looking at pocket .380s check out the Kahr CW380 also.
I have one and its a great little pocket gun.

Kahrs have that long but smooth revolver like DA pull that feels lighter than many of the other pocket guns I've tried (like the LCP, S&W BG and the new Remington RM380).

Thanks - yes, the Pico is the 2nd gen with the improvements - the box is even labeled as such. For a pocket gun, a lighter trigger pull isn't a priority for me. I did consider the Kahr but what one me over is that the Beretta's double action trigger does not require the slide to cycle for it to function. It is constant like a DA revolver. Also, price was good at $279 and it is much easier to take apart than the Kahr - just turn the take down screw.
