Well, my $190 Pico in Flat Dark Earth frame arrived today from Bud's! I've only dry fired it a few times but I'm seriously impressed with the build quality and how well constructed it feels. The trigger is great! I can operate it smoothly without pulling the sights off target. I'm also used to DA triggers and this one is honestly among the smoothest I've used.

Hoping to run some rounds through it tomorrow at the range. See if I can kill some index cards at 7 yards.

Be sure to use snap caps when you dryfire.

Enjoy your new Pico.

Has anyone put any rubber grip sleeves on a Pico, other than Talon Grips? I've seen Hogue stuff on LCP or other pocket guns and they definitely make them easier to hold.

Ran 100 rounds through it

Not bad! At 15' I could keep everything inside an 8" circle at a pretty decent rate of fire. Very easy to pull such a tiny gun to the side!

Had a lot of problems misfeeding the last round in a magazine. It would jam with the casing about halfway into the chamber. Also happened if I tried to load just a single round from a magazine. I cleaned and lubed it. Tried two different brands of round nose FMJ, Remington and Federal. About 50/50 on whether it would chamber that last round from either magazine.

One round actually had the casing peeled back from the bullet slightly.

Did anyone else have similar problems?

If I can get that resolved and practice a bit more I could see the Pico becoming a dress clothes, deep concealment tool. I'll probably never carry a gun this small unless I have to though!

Oh and the trigger on it is really good

Try cleaning and lubing the mags. Check the ser # on the Beretta web page. Early Picos subject to upgrade.
