      Try this with a Bersa 380

      With the slide back and inserting a full magazine till you hear a click then sharply tap the bottom of the magazine with the palm of you hand. Did the slide move forward chambering a round? Be sure your safety is on and the weapon is pointed in a safe direction.

      I think all of the Bersa .380 full size do this. Mine does. If you slam a magazine in hard with the slide back, the slide will normally slam shut, loading a round.

      Its a feature, it won't do it with an empty mag. My wife's cc does the same thing

      My MP40c does this also when a full mag is slamed in, not gently placed in.

      This has been brought up many times at the bersa talk forums.
      Bersa says it is designed to do that.
      If you are in a tight spot and you have to change out magazines, all you have to do is drop the empty and slap a fresh one in and the slide automatically closes and loads the first round off the top.
      At least that is the way it was explained.

      I've had that happen with a few well worn 1911's and M-9's as well.
