    Will it not go all the way into battery even if you "assist" it a bit by pushing the slide? I understand if it won't close by itself, but if it won't close period, then there's a much bigger issue.

    Yeah, it doesn't close at all. The cartridge is pushed at an angle where the nose is slightly pointing up and not budging. The extractor then looks to be pushing against the cartrige wall and getting stuck. the slide won't close all the way then unless i pull the mag and rack the slide so that the round can fall into place in the chamber.

    i ordered a new mag from bersa that should be here in a couple of days, so hopefully that fixes the problem.

    Fiocchi 95gr FMJ

    I have had problems with Fiocchi 95gr FMJ in my Bersa also. Most everything else seems to work well.

    Clean pistol and mag inside and out. again real good then shoot the devil out of it Could be the ammo Some Bersa are picky but most only dislike the winchester junk.

    My Bersa 380 CC developed the same type of problem, it would feed the first one or two rounds then, FTF with the round jammed on the feed ramp. New mag spring solved the problem. No more FTF;s

    Good luck, a new mag is around $30.
    Don't tread on me or mine.
