    Kudos to Bersa

    I admit this was part my fault but not totally. I was shooting my bersa thunder 380 and less than a box of ammo one of the grip screws loosened up and fell out. I should have been paying more attention but oh well. So I e-mailed bersa and told them what happened and they asked for the serial # of my gun and they sent me a new screw no questions asked. That says something for customer service. Thanks Bersa. I will be a customer in the future.

    I've never had a failure of any kind with my Bersa. It goes bang every time you pull the trigger. It's a great gun.

    Most would say Locktite (not the permanent one, but the removable stuff), but I've found that if you put a drop of fingernail
    polish on the screw and screw it in, letting it dry...it stays. Works with sight screws that keep working loose as well.

    I've used clear fingernail polish in lieu of loctite for many years to hold small screws in place.

    I've been looking at a Bersa 9mm as a BUG. Glad to know their customer service is so good.

    Use locktite with extreme care! One of my friends had a Ruger Mark III and want to mount the rail! He put Locktite in the mounting holes to assure the rail stayed on! Much to his surprise the hole are drilled through the upper housing, the entire action was Locktited! As I told him he didn't have to worry about NDs or a lock when taking it to the range!

    So he didn't tell me what he told Ruger when he sent it in for repair! But I think I can still hear the CS rep laughing!

    Me too. Thunder 9 ultra compact with thousands of rounds through it, flawless. Like it so much I bought a Thunder CC 380. Great guns for sure. I've never had to use their CS, but glad to know they're as great as their products.

    I do NOT own a Bersa BUT if I was looking for a bottom feeder I wouldn't hesitate to give then a good look see. Good customer service and they work. Something the 'snob brands' can't say.
