    Does anyone know what serial number they started updating the nano at? There were a few issues with FTE early on. Following that I believe Beretta updated the extractor and/or ejector to solve this issue. I believe some have said it was around #2000?? Min is 14XXX-15XXX range. I just sold my 26 today so I have taken the plunge! Thanks for the help guys!

    I didn't find the answer online. You should call Beretta.

    I just bought a Nano as well, thinking that I would be safe by now with it having the newer extractor/ejector. However, I am not sure as my serial # is NU003XXX.

    The best I could find was ones built in early spring of this year would be fine (around 6000 plus). Yours in the 14-15K range should be GTG.

    I shot over a 100 rounds in my mine last week with a total of 4 FTE on Winchester white box 115. None on 124 or 147 self defence rounds (probably 30-40 of those) that I shot at the beginning of the session.

    I will keep shooting it to see if the FTE continue with the cheap stuff and then decide if it needs to go back to Beretta or not.

    I feel kind of dumb not checking the serial number before buying it to make sure it was a newer one. But there are plenty of guys with very low serial numbers that have had no FTE or issues at all.

    I can't believe you sold a 26 to get a Nano. I'm a Beretta fanboy, but the Nano was a total piece of crap. My G26 is the best shooting pistol I've ever owned, so much better than the Nano. To each his own I guess.

    I have no idea. Mine was bought last month and has not given me any heartburn at all. It ha a NU024XXX serial number.

    It is not even close to being a piece of crap.

    Mine was. In a self defense firearm FTFs are unacceptable. Just my opinion, of course. I sold mine because I couldn't trust it.

    I kind of regret buying my 26 all together. A clunky brick of a gun. It shot decent, but wasn't what I was looking for at the end of the day. The nano is a single stack subcompact. Which as we all know, Glock is ignoring. I just felt like the 26 was to bulky and had a hard to reach mag release. So far my nano has been gret. No Issues.. Thanks for the harsh opinion. Did you ever try sending your gun to beretta? Everyone I have seen that had issues had them resolved after sending it in.
