I have a Bersa UC9 and a BT22 pistols, and both of them are excellent. I had to buy the 9mm from a picture as the so called local dealer - Gander Mtn. - didn't have any in stock. I was surprised when I opened the box and found the quality of the pistol. Not only that ,it fit comfortably in my hand. The finish is in Black Matte and very satisfactory. I purchased it last Oct. and have almost 2000 rounds through it without any major problems. It is a very accurate pistol and is very smooth shooting. It will be my EDC when WI finally gets it's CC program going.
A little over a month ago I bought the Bersa T22 and am very happy with it. It is a little picky on ammo and prefers the CCI Mini_Mags and CCI Blazers which it shoots best. I have almost 500 rounds through it and it too is a excellent shooting pistol.
Bersa's are very under rated and make a fine quality pistol for the money. They are almost a steal at the prices you can buy them for. Both of them are easy to break down and clean.
If you want a fine quality pistol for the money you can't go wrong with these pistols. The 9mm is one of the best pistols in the line. You can learn more by going to Bersa Chat.com and meeting all of the people who own Bersa's and get some real feed back from them.
