Thread: Bersa .380

    The Bersa grips are well rounded and comfortable.

    The PP(K) series are machined with sharp, square corners that bite into the hand.

    Maybe a .32 ACP might be the answer. Keltec, Berreta, NAA or Seacamp.

    Thank You sir, A liitle more home work to do. Brother and I never talked 32, but I think a viable option for anything she'll need in close.

    Hand surgery

    If she has trouble with hanging onto the pistol because of sharp recoil maybe she needs a heavier pistol?
    I have a P32 and the recoil is light, but my mother could not easily rack the slide.
    Maybe a the weight of something like the 3" GP100 would tame the recoil?
    Just a thought...

    It looks like a nice small carry piece. No MSRP listed on the site. May 2010 for the due date... I hope they will be MA compliant being that they are made here in MA...

    I'm also looking forward to getting the Walther PK380 in my hands for touch and feel. I have been told March they will be at the dealers...

    I also had a stainless Walther PPK in my hands this week... I keep getting the urge for a small 380 or 9mm for summer carry...

    I'll have to find a Bursa and hold it..
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    We looked at the Bersa as well, and it seems to be a great gun..
    We decided on the Sig P238 instead. It is a smaller than the Bursa and thus easier to carry..
    Even makes a good back up gun for the .40
    Just a thought..

    Sweet ..... that thing looks like a mini-colt 1911, I'll have to check it out.

They also use a stiffer recoil spring because of the blowback principle and thus are harder to chamber the first round.

    Here is a 380CC with some nice Marschal Grips:


    The standard Bersa 380 and 380CC suffered from a disconnect spring issue last year. Most of those seem to now be history, but there could be some out there as old stock. Although they do have a first owner lifetime warranty and excellent customer service through Colorado Gun Works. This issue did not seem to effect the delux model.

    All that aside the Bersa is a jewel. They should be coming out with a small 9mm similar to the new Taurus Slim and PF9 later this year.

    It is actually a copy of the old Colt Mustang, so... You're pretty close on your statement.

  11. I carry the Bersa .380 CC and would definitely recommend it for a smaller caliber carry gun. Great design and construction. Matte finish is not as pretty as the high dollar guns but it holds up very well, no experience with the nickel finish. Very comfortable to hold and fire. Lifetime warranty for the original owner. Fieldstrips in less than a minute. One of the most accurate self defense guns I have ever fired. Great buy for the money. Take one for a test drive and I think you will be impressed.
