    I don't have any "old Nano" mags, only APX Carry mags.

    For me, it fills the nitch of a single stack 7 round J-frame. Double action every time, hammerless, very small and really light.

    I will be interested to see how this shakes out as if they do not run, I am not interested.
    While I haven't had an issue with it, I have noticed that the Nano mags don't run as well as the APX Carry mags do. The ever-so-slight changes* Beretta made to the mags make a difference. I hadn't though to ask, but were the issues with the APX Carry with the new mags, or the Nano mags?

    Bold emphasis mine. This is not a pre cocked striker fired action? How did I not know that?

    Beretta received it two week ago. I will let you guys know what they did when it comes back.

    Probably quiet design changes by the looks of things. Very disappointing to see. How are the larger apx series doing in reliability?

    Like the NanX

    A little careful sanding of the protrusion at the bottom of the APX Carry grip reduced it to being perfectly flush with the minimalist Nano magazine baseplate, and the result has allowed the Orange Cat to stop thinking he has to give the Nano a "death grip." This particular Nano has been vetted for quite a while, and it functioned perfectly in its post-operative outing.

    I call it the NanX.

    Like the name NanX. And more than appropriate. I will respectfully disagree with your quote "that the APX grip frame is light years more useful than the Nano's. As you know, I like both and have not decided which one I like the most as I have posted before on another forum. The Nano is more like a 1911 style grip which many folks love. Fortunately I have the Nano and a Nano with the APX frame and most likely will keep them that way. I shoot both of them fine. I also took notice that you had to have a feeling of a" Death Grip on the Nano." On the contray for myself. I found out that tight grip on the Nano grip was not only not necessary, but actually a unproductive grip where just a FIRM grip performed much better.
    Since I have shot the APX, and one Nano with over 10,000 rds, I am staying with the Nano and the New APX grip. (NanX)
    Beside the fact that I do not want a Slide Stop, with over a dozen mags Nano Mags, that by they way run just fine in the APX Grip, to purchase the APX would just do nothing for me at this point. And the Nano now on sale at Buds for only $199.00 seems like one of the best deals going on in the gun world. Especially since the APX grip fits the Nano just fine. And the fact that you can simply add a APX grip for $35.00 makes it the best of both worlds.

    By the way, I still cannot stand the APX trigger guard. However I did find one Holster that does fit it. A Desantis.

    UPS just dropped it off. It looks like they replaced the disassembly pin and recoil spring. No letter telling me what was done like last time. Other than that it appears to be the same.

    Being a Beretta fanboy is like being in love with a really hot awesome rich girl with one super yellow tooth you can't stop staring at.
    Lol, my awesome rich girl has perfect teeth. First Nano I bought and still shoot went over the 10,000 mark in Sept. Later bought two more (running great from the start just like the original).Yes, I did put the APX grip on one of the Nano's and ran them side by side for a few months and about a 1,000 rds. Came home yesterday after shooting both and put the Nano grip back on. Yes, I like it better. But each person now can choose what grip he likes. Yes, I obviously am a fanboy. The Nano has given me more than 10,000 reasons to make me one. Bravo to Beretta. Personally think this firearm is about as solid a build quality of any I have seen. Not many parts and one heck of a robust build. Break one down compare any gun to one. I would be happy to put the Nano/ Apx carry sub-compact up against any Micro 9mm out there.
    Bravo to Beretta.

    I never did update this thread but I put the APX in the safe and haven't shot it. Probably won't.

    Thanks for the link. But fairly familiar with the 365. Spent some time with 4 others testing the Sig. We put a 1,000 rds through one about 4-5 months ago.
