Just got my Bersa thunder CC
Just picked it up on Thursday. I got the two toned CC model. Anxious to shoot it, haven't gotten out to the range yet.
I was a little worried, they seem to be a little hard to find. I see some on line for about $285, but by the time it's sent to my local shop, they tack on a $50 handling charge, so I just ordered it directly from the local shop at $319. Probably not the best deal I could find, but I got tired of searching all over just to save $25.
Anyway, what's the best way to get all this cosmoline off that they coat them with? I know it prevents rust from during shipping, but is there anything special I should use to clean it, or just give it the usual cleaning that you would give any gun?
Do Not Use Hoppe's #9 on your Duo-Tone Bersa!
If I am correct here the duo-tone is a nickel plated finish,,,
Never ever use Hoppe's #9 on a nickel plated pistol.
There is a layer of copper sulfide between the metal and the plating,,,
Hoppe's #9 is formulated to dissolve copper from gun barrels.
If the Hoppe's finds a crack in the plating to seep into,,,
It will dissolve that layer and your plating will start to deteriorate.
Hoppe's is a great product,,,
But not for nickel plated guns.
