Got it back with a note that the extractor had been replaced and 100 rounds fired with no malfunctions.
On round #24 of Federal AE 124gr. FMJ I had a FTE double feed.
I raised enough hell that Beretta issued another UPS call tag and it's going straight back to Accokeek, MD so they can repair it in house (instead of their contract warranty shop, Bolsa Gunsmithing).
Things are looking up with the Nano.
Beretta turned it around in about 1 week.
Repair tag stated the extractor was replaced, chamber polished and test fired 30 rounds.
I went to the range this afternoon and put 200 rounds of FMJ downrange (100 RWS 124gr., 100 AE 124gr.) and 50 rounds of Ranger 124gr. +P JHP with no issues.
I'm going to run another 250 through it Friday afternoon and if it stays reliable I'll probably start using it as a BUG.
The Nano is easier to shoot than my Kahr PM9, they are identical in size but the Nano has a few extra ounces of weight.
I was cranking off .25-.30 splits on an IDPA -0 @ 7 yards shooting 124gr. AE ammo, which is real close to my P30 splits (.21-.26).
The rear checkering is a cheese grater after 200 rounds but nothing I can't live with.
If I can establish reliability and get some night sights this will make a great little pocket/BUG/NPE gun.
It is slow to reload and the mag baseplates are huge, but for this guns intended role I won't be carrying a spare anyway so it's no big deal.
Fingers crossed the extraction issues have been cured with the new extractor.

You mentioned the Nano in the S&W Shield thread.
Is the Nano still kickin around, or have you continued to have troubles with it?
I'm at 600 rounds with zero problems after the Beretta gunsmith's chamber polish and extractor replacement.
I'm confident enough in it to carry it as my "pocket 9" and BUG.
I'm headed to the range in an hour or so to fire off another 100 rounds of RWS 124gr. fmj.
As a side note, Bolsa Gunsmithing (Beretta contract warranty center for the southwest US) did NOT impress me.
I have my suspicions that they fired a mag or two with no problems, boxed it up and sent it back.
When Beretta Accokeek returned it to me there were indications that work was performed and test firing was done.
Looking at how well the extractor grips the rim now, before the slide is retracted far enough to hit the ejector, how secure does it seem and how much contact does the claw make? Does it drop out with a gentle touch or does it take some pressure to torque it off the breech-face?
