    Firestorm/ Bersa

    I was checking out Gunbroker.com and came across what I thought was a Bersa .380. As it turned out it was a Firestorm. Are they the same company? The pistols look identical to one another.

    Bersa & Firestorm are the same. Others may know the exact history and relationship.
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    From what I can find, BERSA makes he Firestorm line with different badging and grips. They sure do look like the same gun, don't they?

    FireStorm is made by Bersa. If you take a close look at the slide of a FireStorm you will see the Bersa name on it.

    I've been eyeing them myself, the reputation is great and they are cheap. As far as I can tell, the only real difference is the finger groove grips on the firestorm.

    I heard that Firestorm was made by Bera and assembled by Firestorm in a
    different plant ,but I,m not sure about that.

    I have the Bersa thunder .380 and it a nice HG for CCing during the summertime...

    I shot it at the range , it wasn't what i expected from a little gun...the 380 rounds i shot were blazer round noise...

    Some of the lower shots were targeting to check the sights, the rest were double taps...
