    380 Thunder Mag Question

    123
    We just received a Thunder 380 at work to test our ammo with. The magazine that came with it was almost unloadable. We were unable to get more than 4 rounds in the magazine. Figuring that, perhaps, we had received a bad magazine, we went down to the local gun shop to buy another that would work better. However, it was extremely tight, as well. I attempted loading a couple of different types of ammo into the magazines, but they were extremely tight.

    Has anyone else run across this problem and have a good fix?

    I have the Plus model, 15 rd. double stack and it was stiff. It got better after shooting a few clips. I do spray some Rem. dry lube in my mags on all my semi-autos. A clip loader would help press down a round in the clip while you insert another round. The Bersa website has them for sale. I have to use one that came with my Taurus .45 due to stiff springs in the mag.

    Your gun uses CLIPS?

    Went to a gun show today and came home with a Bersa Thunder in Nickel with a 7 round magazine. The spring was a little stiff but With the help of a mag loader, I had no problem getting in 7 rounds.

    Yes but a magazine is something I read in the bathroom and a clip is a short video of a longer movie.

    The mags feel stiff is ok. Buy the thumb press loader from the Bersa site. It's cheap and makes loading a snap. I had last round firing issues on a couple different mags. I quit wiping the spring after cleaning w/ those Rem oil packets. I now keep the mag bone dry after cleaning.

    Your mags may need to be broken in a little .. if you are going to shoot an automatic.. buy a mag loader...if you do any shooting at all, a mag loader is one of those tools you say, I should have bought this years ago.. You can cycle the spring and follower with a wooden paint stirrer... some time the follower may be bent or there is a burr.
