This is a great little pistol, especially for the money. It is well made and functioned perfectly with the two types of ammo I was finally able to purchase, Remington UMC 95gr MC and TulAmmo 91gr FMJ. At 15 feet my off hand groups with the UMC ammo averaged 1.5", but the TulAmmo was very erratic and yielded an average group size of 4".
The pistol points very naturally, and the sights, with the white outlined wide notch rear and white dot front, are easy to acquire and align on target. The pistol fits my hand nicely and I love the rubber grip with finger grooves. As Chris F pointed out, Bud's photo is not representative of the actual pistol in that it does not show the correct grip.
The double action trigger has a very long travel and I found I was much more accurate if I used a two stage trigger pull, i.e., take up most of the slack, realign my sights, then fire the weapon. The single action trigger pull, while not target quality, I found to be short & crisp.
My three dings, which result in my 4 star rating are: (1) I found the larger slide serrations Bersa used on this firearm uncomfortable when racking back the slide; (2) I would have preferred having the pinky extension instead of the flat based magazine (again, Bud's photo is not representative of the actual pistol); and (3) I found the safety difficult to move from safe to fire without shifting my grip on the weapon.
Nevertheless, I really like this pistol and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for something in this class of firearm
