    Bersa finger rest for Ruger LCP?

    I just put 150 flawless rounds tonight through my new Ruger LCP, but it really IMO could use just a bit more to hold onto. It seemed like it wanted to jump out of my hand at each shot. I used Bersa Thunder 380 finger rests on a previous P3AT, which fit fine, but I had jamming issues. ( I think it was just the gun overall and not the add-ons, BTW)

    Does anyone know if you can use Bersa finger rests on the LCP magazines?

    The magazine base plate pinky extension that I bought through GunBroker.com Online Gun Auction says it fits Kel-Tec P3AT & P32, Ruger LCP and Bersa 380.

    The Bersa finger extension does fit the Ruger LCP but it has a little gap between the plastic extension and grip. It is just cosmetic though.

    I threw a Bersa extension on one of my LCP mags when I first bought the pistol, but I really didn't like it much - removed it fairly quickly. As posted earlier, they do fit, but leave a cosmetic gap between the grip and the extension. The reason I didn't like it was due to how awkward it felt to have to wrap my pinky around the extension (it protrudes between your pinky and ring finger). If I were born without a pinky on my right hand it would've been perfect.

    on the P3AT, I tuck my little finger under the rest. I have heard all the horror stories about the magazine blow-outs, and how you could lose a finger, but I have also heard of even more "ka-booms" that have little to do with user tecniques. Actually, I tuck my little finger under the baseplate of my Kimber Compact too, since it's too danged short and useless to add anything to my grip.

    For a long, long time I was not an advocate of adding the finger rest to the smallest, lightest .380 cal pistol in mass production. It just did not seem right adding more bulk to such a nice design for small space concealment. But, after giving in and experimenting for the measly price of 7 bucks, I was totally amazed at the added control the finger rest added. My ring finger has a nice base now to firmly control muzzle flip.
