      I had an issue with mine when I bought it, one of my genius buddies racked the slide with the safety half on :. I would take the Right Grip Panel Off and see if the spring in there has come loose. All I had to do on mine is stick it back in place and I haven't had an issue since.

      I would post pics but my Bersa is currently sitting in my Mom's desk drawer .

      Hope this helps,
      Foley

      There should be a "c" clip holding the hammer bar in place. They have been known to break. You can get them from Bersa or probably find one to fit at the local hardware store.

      If the e-clip is missing you can find a 2mm replacement at many hobby stores. Also make sure that the flat washer is still in place.

      Cool Bersa Thunder Trigger sticking

      I just finished fixing mine. I tried all the listed fixes but no dice. I bought the book suggested by Jack at American Gunsmithing Institute since AGI didn't have a video for the Bersa:
      Wood, J. B. (1999-12-01). The Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly Part I - Automatic Pistols (Pt. 1) (Kindle Location 345). Krause Publications. Kindle Edition.

      The model in it was older and didn't have the C-clip and washer holding the trigger bar. After many assemblies/re-assemblies I finally figured out that the ejector stabilizer pin was protruding under the trigger gar and binding it. I drifted it flush, reassembled and it works like new! Hope this helps!

      I have a Bersa Thunder 380 Plus that's just over 1 year old. I too had a trigger reset problem develop and I've been trying to resolve this problem for several months now. After recently reading your post I immediately examined my ejector stabilizer pin and sure enough it was also protruding. I too drifted it back flush, reassembled and VOILA !! Works like new again. I'm planning on checking the subject pin during each cleaning. Thanks for the great suggestion.

      LPaul,
      Welcome to the site!
      That was GREAT forensics in locating an old thread that answered your needs. Normally someone's 1st post is asking for an answer, it is good to see that there are still people who are willing to do some digging to help themselves!
      The Bersas are great guns, as I'm sure you know. I just wanted to point out that there are MANY, MANY answers here if people would just search.

      I'm glad it helped. It was driving me nuts until I finally figured it out.
