    My 383A is well made and extremely accurate. And I'll bet you my paycheck its better made than anything today.

    Beautiful firearm greyeyezz. Love the grips. I've commented in another thread about my Bersa experience and suffice it to say, after an extended break in period, my Thunder .380 is a daily carry piece. It's a great CC weapon.

    As to Bersa customer service: My son has a Bersa Thunder .380. It's his CCW. It's accurate and reliable. He loves it so much he bought a used Bersa .45. It had a cracked frame, so he contacted Bersa. Because the gun is still within warranty period, they are sending him a new gun.

    I think they are a little rough around the edges generally but a lot of solid handgun value for the money. Bersa's are not as well finished as higher end handguns but are very well made mechanically.

    Are Bersa Firearms any good?

    I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 IWB loaded with Corbon Pwrballs and trust it completely.

    I am thinking of getting a Bersa 9mm also.

    Does anyone have any experience with the Bersa BP 9CC? If so let us know about it.

    I like the Thunder Pro UC 9mm but also like the BP 9CC and need to find out more.

    I've heard some great things about a Bersa 9.

    The UC9 is a big thick heavy piece. That said, mine is my nightstand gun (13+1 and a nice rail light). The trigger ROCKS. It is more accurate than I am and it has been 110% reliable. For a carry piece there are probably better options, but this is an ideal bedside gun IMO.

    Bersa is like that really awesome chick who wasn't the hottest in school, but would make a great wife. Not the prettiest, bit not ugly either, and had a great personality.

    My primary Carry gun is the BP9CC, and am overall very impressed with it, well balance, best shooting small 9mm I have fired, and better finished that most Bersas. If you go over to the Bersa forum you will find many comments on it , and overall is a winner. A few of the first ones in country were a little glichey, but it seems the latter arrivals have been good, and I have had mine since February, and about 300 rounds through it now, and only one error for me, and minor.

    I've owned a Thunder 380 CC and currently own a Thunder 380 Deluxe and a Firestorm 22lr. All have been reliable and accurate.

    Are Bersa firearms any good?

    I have purchased a Bersa Thunder .32 to go along with my .380 and both are really nice. Accurate, dependable, and I can use the same holster for both. Maybe next a 9mm?

    interesting thread...I have contemplated both a thunder 380 combat and the thunder UC pro in 9mm for sometime. I may just have to pull the trigger one of these days then.

    Are Bersa firearms any good?

    I own, and sometimes carry, a Bersa Thunder 9UC and it has been 100% reliable for 7 years. I lost exact count, but if I had to guess, it has gone through no less than 4000 rounds. I would not hesitate to buy another one in the future. Bersa has been so good, to so many, that even some bonafide gun snobs have been converted.
