Are you sure on that web address. Bersa.com comes up with a dead web page on my end.
I use a Bersa .380 'pimp-daddy' gun (black with gold levers) for SOB carry on occasions where it's really got to be tucked away. It shoots well and easily, and part of that is a bigger grip, for me. I carried a Thunder Pro (I think) .45 for a while but it seemed to be a harsh shooter in my old hands. It required clean slippery magazines to feed correctly. I upgraded it to the current Ruger P345 which feels much more gentle.
If you "work" on the Bersa's... I'm sure they can be pretty reliable... Best of luck...
ok what is a good breakin shots for a bresa firestorm 380?
I own a Bersa 383DA and love it. The first one would not stay open after the last shot, bad slide. Bersa put a new slide on it and
same thing. The second time I sent it back, they replaced the whole pistol..... not one jam, FTF, or glitch of any kind no matter what I fed it. My only issue with Bersa is they stopped making the clips for it when they stopped making the pistol. (Note to self, buy
at least four extra clips when buying the pistol. Maybe if they get enough emails at Bersa.com requesting the clips they will make
them again.) The Bersa is going in the vault with the last good clip I have for it. I just bought a Walther PPK/S and was torn
between the Walther and the Bersa. Spent the extra money and got the Walther because the trigger felt better and the history with
out of production clips. I pick the Walther up tomorrow and am ordering extra clips tomorrow as well.
I'm new and just here to research... but thought that I woud add some input to the Bersa chat... since it was one of the top topics when I logged in.
Looks like there are many reasons that people have doubts about Bersa... lack of test data... lack of retail support... lack of respect for the Argintinian factor... and so may ways to spend more money on a Carry gun.
I'll add another. Bersa's are known for a blotchy finish... nothing polished looking about this brand... and very few people would ever be impressed with it.
I am much more impressed by my other Semi-Autos... and none are really expensive (Berettas, Ruger)... but I carry the Bersa Thunder .45... a lot of punch for the size and price.
secondly, what percentage of gun owners will ever put 10,000 thru a pistol? i would guess not many. for the average shooter, wondering about 10,000 rd reliability is moot.
I've read of Beretta M9 pistols being tested under U.S. Army supervision at BUSA go 168,000 rounds before a single malfunction, now that's some good testing. "168,000" I still have a hard time believing that claim.
[QUOTE]"Bersa supplies handguns to both the military & police forces in argentina. i've not seen the results & i'm not sure if they were even made public, bit, i'm sure the guns were tested extensively by these agencies before purchase".
Again, I have had some experience with Bersas, and at their price point, I think they are good solid handguns. The only one I did not like was the CC version of the .380 Thunder. JMHO.
Argentina has a military? Who Knew?
Did all 3 guys get a Bersa or do they have to share each guy gets to use it every 8 hours?
Not a knock on Bersa I just actually laughed out loud when I read Argentina military. ......It probably isn't funny but but sure struck me that way today.
I have a Bersa 9UC which I bought last Oct.and has over 2000 + rounds through it so far. It fits my hand beautifully, is very accurate and has a sweet smooth trigger on it. It is very bit as good as my S&W 439, which I bought 24 years ago. Last July I bought the BT 22, and now have over 1000's rounds through it. Another sweet pistol for the money. You can't beat them for their quality or price. Both are easy to break down for cleaning. Their value is great for the money, and you get excellent quality. They are very under rated by those who really don't know anything about them. Also, a life time warranty for the original owner. What more do you want.
