    Size/weight how does the Beretta Nano compare to say a Kahr PM9, or K9 or a J frame revolver?

    Or a Smith 3913?

    I don't have pictures, as I just compared a 9mm Nano to a Kahr CM9, held them side by side, and they are fairly close. The Nano seems slightly larger in the grip (wider) and the trigger guard is larger too. The Nano may be listed as narrower by a few thousands of an in, but it may be do to the lack of having a manual slide release lever. Sure someone will post pictures so you can see for your self. LM

    The Nano is bigger in most ways to the Kahr PM9/CM9, but to a very small degree.

    Having carried the PM9 for some time, I just picked up a Nano. There is not a whole lot of difference in size. A little here or there. They are both way smaller than a 3913.

    That being said the Nano is a really, really nice gun!. The fit and finish is better than the Kahr and it is less expensive (black slide Kahr) There is none of the lame 250 round break in stuff. The Nano works right out of the box like a gun should. My Kahr went back to the factory 3 times before it worked.

    I had so many problems with a Kahr PM 45 that after several returns they replaced the gun, still a failure. I ended up selling it for a big loss. No more Kahrs for me.

    I just put several hundred rounds through the Nano and not one problem. It is a well built gun the best IMHO of all the pocket 9's.

    thanks for all the information. I have a Kahr K40 and a PM 9. So I am guessing the Nano is in between them.

    And the 3913 is slightly larger than the K40.
