My Bersa 9UC will be 2 years old in Oct and has about 8000 rounds through it. My BT22 is just over a year old and has several thousand rounds shot through it. They are both great pistols, under rated, and well built.I got a great deal when I bought these pistols. They can't be beat for the money and ar well made and good quality handguns.
I have a Thunder 380 Plus and a Thunder22 and couldn't be happier with them.
I have a Bersa Thunder 380 Duotone myself. The gun has been great for me as well. I have notice one small detail that bug me: the recoil spring appears to only go in one way and it's kind of hard to tell.
Other than that, yes the gun does ding up a bit more than anything else I've had. Fairly good trade if you ask me for the amount you pay for it and the reliability of it.
to say im happy with mine is a MAJOR understatment!i have a thunder pro .40,and i wouldnt part with it.it has never jammed with me,and is always accurate and dependable.
I've been real happy with my Bersa UC45 that I bought it used from Bud's. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one if I wanted it. I prefer my PF9 9mm to a Bersa .380 for CC. Nothing wrong with the Bersa, but the PF9 is lighter, smaller and shoots the 9mm.
I am very satisfied with my Pro 9 HC. Although I have only owned it for a short time, it feels very comfortable in my hand, preforms well, and is very easy to strip and maintain.
I have a 9 UC Pro and am very happy with it. Have several hundred rounds through it with no problems at all. Mild recoil and is easy to get back on target with. Easy to dis assemble and clean no complaints from this user.
Wife wants a handgun to carry (eventually) and the Thunder 380 is her current #1 choice after going to two shops and handling about 25 different compact/sub compact revolvers and pistols in 9mm and .38(0). From what I've read over the years is that they are reliable and well made while still inexpensive. Fits her hands and she can operate everything without difficulty (can you say Kahr CW/M9 slide?). Still looking at other options before laying down cash but pretty sure that nothings going to change.
Well, went ahead and order this when I saw the deal come up.
Bersa T380MLLKIT Thunder 380 ACP 3.5" 7+1 Blk Poly Grip Blue $310.00 SHIPS FREE
Next week we'll find out if she/we are 'happy' Bersa owners. Wasn't looking for one of the kits or a laser, but the case and speed loader alone make it a better deal than anyone around here has the pistol itself for.
OK, maybe NEXT week? I am quickly losing faith in Bud's. I knew going in that ordering on a holiday weekend and after elections (of anti-gun numbnuts) that it might take a bit longer than the last time I ordered from them. But, surely, in the 21st century of electronic ordering and banking and inventory controls and communications it cannot take a week to get an item out the door? Trying not to be too negative and come up with conspiracies (over ordered? mis-priced?) but I could have driven to KY and back in a day. Still excited to get it though (gritting teeth).
My Thunder 22 and thunder 380 are jam-o-matics,,,
For a lady friend of mine
I shoot the heck out of both of my Bersa's,,,
I never get a jam or other malfunction(s) of any kind.
But put those same pistols in my friends hands,,,
The guns jam all the time.
I do think they are sensitive to limp wristing.
I too thought they were wearing excessively,,,
But like the other posters said,,,
It quickly stopped.
FINALLY! Picked it up this afternoon. Checked it pretty thoroughly before signing/paying. I will give a good sprucing up this weekend to get ready for it's first play date. I will post the results in due time. Bud's/UPS is another thread altogether.
I have had my Bersa Thunder for around 2 years now and have run around 100 rounds through it and so far I havnt seen any wear due to shooting it or holster wear and I cc almost every day
I've had my Bersa Thunder9 UC (not the "pro") for more than three years and have put thousands of rounds down range (probably close to 4,000 by now). It is utterly reliable and although I also own an XD45 compact, an XD9, and a Ruger LCR in .357 Magnum, the Bersa is my every day carry pistol. My other pistols are great and I do carry them occasionally, but the Bersa just carries easily and "feels right".
