I have owned a number of Bersa pistols, and have never had an issue with any of them. Now, will the Bersa pass the 30,000 round test? I don't know, but the ones that I had all performed well and were good looking guns too. I can't say that my Hi Point JHP, in .45 ACP looks good, but it shoots like a house on fire and is very accurate. I have just over 600 rounds thru it without any malfuntions. I run ball and HP ammo in it and it always does a good job. Some of my fellow shooters laugh at me when I get that big ugly gun out, until they see it shoot and then they shut up. (Especially when they find out how much I paid for it NIB) Don't worry what others think of your Bersa, they are not the ones who shoot it, you are so you be the judge.
