    According to one measure, GunBroker auction results from recent sales: Thunder 380's seem to be ~$325-360 or so; Thunder UC Pro's are another $100 above that.

    I have a stainless Bersa Thunder 380 CC. It's a great little firearm. I bought mine used for $250. It took me 30 seconds to remove the grip panels and take out the C spring that engages the magazine disconnect safety. Great little shooter, 8+1, and pretty easy to be accurate with considering it has virtually no sights. Rounded no snag design, hammered semi-auto with de-cocker / safety. Can carry it de-cocked on a quarter cock setting and safety off and you're ready to rock and roll. Strips easily for cleaning too.

    A buddy of mine has the regular Bersa Thunder 380 and it's a smoother shooter, but a little bigger gun. I also have a Bersa Thunder 9 ultra compact 9mm and I LOVE that gun. It's a little heavy relative to some other guns that size, but at 13+1 capacity and all steel internal components, long slide rails, and an alloy metal frame it is built like a tank and a buttery smooth shooter.

    All in all, Bersa firearms are well built, reliable, and affordable.

    My edc is a thrunder 380. It has two 7 round mags. I saw a brand NIB a couple of weeks ago for $275. I have had mine for a few years and you can't do better than a bersa thunder. Maybe the BEST gun you can buy.

    They seem to run around $300 at Bud's depending on the version. At one point I really wanted one but now that I have a Bersa BP9CC and a Beretta Nano I don't have much need for a .380.

    We shelled out 265 for my wife's Bersa a few years ago. My first reaction to the gun was pretty negative but I trust that particular gun at the shop we were in. We took it home. It just works all the time, it's that simple.

    I've divested myself of the caliber but my wife likes the easy recoil so it'll probably stay here for a long time. I'll say this; it's proven itself much more reliable than the P238 ever dreamed of being. So the Bersa is sitting in the drawer right now and the Sig went walk about. I'm finally learning that the label doesn't always tell the whole story about the quality.

    Price on the runs in the $300. range. Great little guns. Accurate, and reliable. The first one I owned was the Thunder 380 DLX, with the extended magazine. Ended up selling it to a friend who needed something for home defense, many years ago. Have the Thunder Bi-tone now. Well worth what you pay for it.

    My LGS has 2 of em in matte finish for $319.00
    I have an older version of the Thunder thats all steel ( 383A ) if my experience with it is any indication, you are buying a long time companion that will serve you well and with a dignity that some "bigger name brands" wish they had. There is nothing wrong with a "Blue collar" worker that does its job flawlessly.

    Re: Bersa Thunder 380?

    I think its a nice little gun for the price. My brother-in-law and several other people I know have had an issue of it bighting their gripping hand somehow when the slide comes back. Ive shot it a bunch with no issues and can't figure out what their problem is.

    There's one used in a LGS for $230. Ive considered buying it just because its so cheap.

    I paid $269 +tax for my reverse duo-tone Thunder 380 in Sept 2012. Really, there's nothing not to like about this pistol, especially for that price. Obviously, the current insanity is driving prices up on everything.
