    Bersa 380 Thunder Plus

    Just picked up another Bersa - a 380 Thunder Plus - and took it right to the range. Fired 50 rounds right from the box (American Eagle 90g ball). I had no issues in loading, feeding and firing - putting all but 1 round in the center circle at 15 meters. The double stack grip is very comfortable and 15 round capacity is awesome.

    I have been eying the Thunder 9 myself. I saw one at a gun show last weekend and it looked very nice. Thanks for the review on the 380. I do not own one but I have heard good things about Bersa.

    I have a Bersa Thunder .380 Plus, 15 round magazine, and for $10,000, I'll sell you the only spare magazine for yours on the continent.....nevermind, I decided to keep it.

    Good luck finding spare mags, I've had an order in at my gun shop for about 7 months now.

    Sweet. I like that gun a lot. That magazine issue sounds scary though.

    I guess i could stop sounding so frustrated...I LOVE the gun, but am having a hell of a time getting a spare mag for it....so beware of THAT little problem, otherwise, the gun itself is terrific.

    There...Maybe that's not so cynical...

    Everywhere I check for a 15 round magazine they are listed as "backorder" or "out of stock"....grrrrrrrr. No problem with the Thunder 7 round mags though. Bersa makes a very good weapon and I would have gladly pay a few extra dollars for one if they would have include another magazine.

    Geds: 7 months... WTH?! Guess I'll have to take extra special card of the one I have

    And not cynical here either... It is a fantastic pistol

    I have the Bersa Thunder .380 CC and really love it! I told my wife that this is one weapon that I do not see myself EVER selling or trading.

    If you haven't already go to bersa talk and check out the forum.

    I have ordered from yourgunparts. They are an excellent business to deal with. I placed an order for a few items, Most were in stock one was not. I recieved a phone call asking me how I wanted my order handled that same day. They even waived the shipping costs on the out-of-stock item and shipped it priority when it came in. I absolutely love my 2 bersas. The wife and I wouldn't part with them for anything.

    I Love Bersa'a great guns

    They only have one problem, the mags are hard to find.
