Attendees at the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, TX had the opportunity to see Beretta’s latest addition to its pocket pistol lineup. Meet the PICO in .380 ACP! This Beretta pocket micro-pistol will be hard to resist, especially at a suggested retail price of $399.
The Beretta Pico .380 Difference
Unlike traditional pistols, the serial number on the PICO is found not on the frame. It is located on the stainless steel sub-chassis. This distinct difference makes the PICO truly modular. It provides customers the opportunity to easily change the techno-polymer grip frame. Go from the standard “go-with-everything black” to one of three different colors including flat dark earth, white or purple, all with a single serial number. LaserMax® takes the PICO frame options beyond just color by developing an integrated laser grip frame for those looking for that added sense of security. The modularity of the PICO provides the option of customization to the caliber itself with a simple change of the barrel. PICO owners can change their .380 ACP pistol to a .32 Auto utilizing the optional caliber kit available thru the Beretta Pro-Shop.
The PICO’s modularity provides simple disassembly and easy cleaning. Owners no longer need the services of a gunsmith to change the front and rear sights. A simple hex screw allows for a host of sight options and adjustments. Left-handed shooters will appreciate the PICO’s ambidextrous mag release, an exclusive feature in the pocket pistol category. A smooth, double action trigger and soft recoil make the PICO a pleasure to shoot. A sleek, low-profile, snag free design completes the PICO and makes it easy to carry. It’s a breeze to draw from concealment and holster, mandatory features for any pocket pistol.
Look for the new PICO at your local Beretta dealer. You can also find it in your favorite big name sporting goods store later this summer.
