I have three of them and can tell you from experience you won't find a better gun for twice the money! Between my original UC-9 (got it in 2004) and my newest gun (a year old in November) I've never had a single problem, PERIOD! I've fired nearly 3,000 rounds thriough the oldest gun and about 600 or so from each of the other two and as searcher 45 said the only down side is it's sometimes hard to find extra magazines. Luckily, you get two mags with the gun and at $35-$40 each, they aren't any more expensive than many other pistol magazines out there.
FYI the gun is based on the Walther P-88 design and is similar in design and breakdown to the SIG 220 series pistol. There is a new version of the Bersa 9/40/45 pistol called the PRO series, though the earlier style is still available. The main changes are an accessory rail, modified rifling for the barrel and a loaded chamber indicator on the PRO series. They normally retail for $350-$400 NIB (it depends on where you live) and there are several forums devoted to Bersa pistols. The most popular is bersatalk.com and you'll get a lot of good info there from people who own and use Bersa pistols. :hand5:
The Bursa UC 9mm is not my carry gun. For me it is to wide and does not fit my CC need in Texas heat. I believe it would work very well in the cooler or cold month with layered clothes and the right holster. If things really get bad bad bad in our nation and you needed a weapon to protect yourself and family with I would rate Bursa right up there with a Glock and the rest.
