I picked it up at my LGS. I bought it through Gunbroker and happy with the deal. It's a little tight, mag release, slide release, and hammer drop.I'm sure they'll smooth out after a few rounds.
That is true of pretty much all guns. Some that you don't pay a lot for, like my Taurus 85 with 10,000 rounds so far, keep on ticking without any issues.It finally became so worn that the slide would no longer mate with the barrel-kept missfeeding-mind you after several years as a range rental-I think that speaks volumes for the Bersa.
In the past, I carried one for 2+ years without any problems. The only problem I had was wanting to try every gun on a limited budget.My very first carry was a bersa until I developed a limp from the weight Kind of wishing I never sold it as it was a fun little pistol.
Mag disconnect can be corrected. High cap has its advantages and disadvantages as well. I feel that 8+1 and extra 8 mag is more than sufficient for defensive carry. I just don't think that high cap, optic sights, threaded/silenced barrels are not needed for most defensive reactions.IMHOI looked at one but didn't like the magazine disconnect feature. Other than that it seems to be a great little pistol. I also like the high capacity model.
