Bersa Thunder Plus slide shuts, loading round, when mag slammed in.
Hello, Everyone - I have a new Bersa with a coupe problems. Not very excited about two obvious, problematic quirks, but if I can mod or adjust something, and gun works reliably, I am still interested.
If the slide is locked back, and if I insert a mag fairly firmly or hard, the slide closes, loading the first round.
So, I have to be gently if I want to insert a mag but not have the first round loaded.
Can someone tell me what I should file, bend, or otherwise mod to solve this?
That's pretty common and not generally a sign of anything wrong. If you want a mag in the gun and the chamber empty just close the slide first then insert the mag
My Bersa 380cc does the same thing. I am used to it and now I make sure it happens. Saves a step and if your not ready to fire just de-cock it and your ready to fire when needed. It seems all the Bersa 380's are like this. My Bersa 9UC does not do this.
