    Is My Brand New Bersa Thunder Bad?

    I just bought this Bersa Thunder .380 brand new. I bought it home. Loaded it with some A Zoom snap caps to check basic operation and I noticed about a 1/32" gap at the back of the ejector port and I can even see the snap cap chambered "In battery" (see attached photos). Is this condition normal or should I send it back to Bersa before my first trip to the range. Please advise. Thanks
    Loading sequence ...
    a). Rack slide back into fully open position.
    b). Eject magazine and load with snap caps.
    c). Insert loaded magazine fully into gun.
    d). Release slide lock to chamber round.

    Mine looks just like that. Don't worry about it. It won't affect performance.

    Take an old style shaving brush to that gun and get all that crap off of it.

    Just consider it a "viewing port" to be able to check the condition of your piece! Lol. No, really, it's a non-issue and the Bersa will serve you well.

    It is intentional, so you know when you have a round in battery.

    Its the case rim that is showing. Thickest portion of the case. As already stated it so you can at a glance know if a round is chambered. We all can have a brain and forget if a weapon is in battery or not. Be happy its not one of the new Rugers with their stupid flag that pops up when a round is chambered.
    I know nothing about Bersas, Tell us what you think after your range trip. Back in the '90s I just ignored then as just another no-name gun. They seem to have become mainstream.

    It's obviously defective and causing you great mental anguish. Since you sound like a nice guy, I'll tell you what I'll do. Send it to me, and i will regretfully take on the mental burden of knowing I have a defective firearm!

    Just give me a call at BR-549!

    If you want a second opinion..

    The gun is designed to witness a round in Battery.

    PS... its always good to ask .. no question is stupid when it come to firearms.
