CRAP!



CRAP!



However since folks in this forum are saying much to the contrary I think I must give it another look. I am VERY biased against this gun, however.



Honest enough fer ya?

My 380 has shot hundreds of rounds, mag tec, winchester and aguila,with out a fail to feed. On the other hand my 40 S&W cal. bersa, has been back to the factory because of failures. I love the way this gun shoots, very smooth and accurate. But it still hangs up once in a while. I am going to see if it improves, if not back it goes again! The warranty is life time.

I love my 380. Just bought it in Sept. of 2006 and have maybe shot 500 to 700 rounds with it. Its been flawless and has the best trigger pull Ive every felt. As a matter of fact Im looking to buy a new Bersa 45 as my main duty gun sense the 380 shoots so good. I have a Glock 23 now. Anyone know anything about the new 45?

Yelp..that Bersa 380 (got one w/ankle holster) w/ the straight-line feed, of that little booger you can load-up, those hollow-points and let it talk!!! Great little gun!! I have shot 200-300 rds. through mine ,and never once did that little puppy jam! Even w/ the hollow-points!! Great pistol!! Later, Nohub

LOL!! Just got off the phone w/him and he is SOLD-OUT of the 380s ( says he cant keep enough of them in stock) They are a real hot item in this area. He told me that he was gong to order a couple of the 45s next week. He has not had, any requests for the 45s, but has also sold a few 9s. Later, Nohub

I have had my Bersa model 95 .380 for roughly 6 years now and have nothing but good times with it.

I actually just shot it today along side my new beretta 96g.



I keep my bersa close to me at all times at home and on the road.

It is very concealable, very accurate even to date and to me has been very reliable.



My dislikes are the 7 round magazines are 30+ dollars to buy. And I am not even sure which one to order any more as I havent seen a model 95 in years. I assume it is the same as the thunder 380 as it looks identical. If any one has knowledge of this please let me know.



I have put several hundred rounds through mine easily and that is basically to give me a reason to clean it.



Now that I bought my beretta though I will be teaching my wife how to shoot with this bersa.

Hey nohub Im going to my gun dealer monday morning and seeing about that 45. if it shoots as good as the 380 then Ill be sold. I have a Glock 40 now as my service weapon but if the bersa shots good Ill be changing.

Hello, everyone. The answer to a few of you question. myself have been a .380 owner for just over a year. I have pound that weapon over and over again. A Flawless piece of equipment. My Spring and Summer carry. Now to answer your ??? I step onto the .45 cal. which is also remarkable. I have pound roughly a 1000 round in it and it hasnt skip a beat. Both ball rounds and Hydros to 165gr hollows. Still flawless. The funny thing is I brought it used An Excellent weapon. Im looking for a .40 cal now.

I had a local arms dealer try to convince me that hi-points were better guns and I laughed. The only thing that was said was of the lack of a good warranty on the bersa products.

I still like mine for the safety features, ease of use and size for CCW.

Although I am eyeing an AK for a rifle backup and the XD for next purchases.
