Bersa Thunder 380 .380acp Duo Tone, 7 round [THUN380DT]
by mike h
Date Added: Saturday 13 February, 2010
I purchased this along with the Bersa 9mm because i thought it might be hard to find/buy 380 acp ammo which i found to be true. also the price(s) of 380 acp ammo is ridiculous. Anyway I had the chance to fire the 380 and the 9mm over Christmas and again in January.
The 9mm has less felt recoil and for me simply feels more comfortable to hold and aim plus the magazine capacity of 13 is better than the small 7 of the 380 so you don't have to reload as often.
Fit and quality of both pistols is very good. The 380 is smaller and is probably a better carry weapon choice as it was recommended by many in Texas and elsewhere.
The results of firing were that the 9mm was quite accurate from 25 yards with easy groups of 3 or so inches from a standing position.
The big shock was how extremely inaccurate was the 380. My wife, son and i all fired 3 magazines of 3 different ammo types from 25 yards - that's 21X3=63 rounds - and only one round even hit the 12X12 inch target paper! This gun was so far off that it was tough to tell where the bullets were going. we eventually changed to a freshly coated backstop so we could better judge what was happening.
Even at 10 yards, it was still off the paper by a foot low! we couldn't even get it on the paper by trying to aim high. as we had used 3 different manufacturer's ammo we don't thing it was the bullets. It may be the sights or the barrel or ??? who knows what. This may be a a case of a bad pistol as other reviews are/were very positive. I will have to contact Bersa's warranty number which is always a hastle but i can't even sell the pistol as is.
All in all i would not recommend this pistol as the 9mm is a better choice, only a bit larger, $60 more expensive but with MUCH cheaper ammo and ammo that you can find. I'm sorry i bought it but will have to deal with it now and see what Bersa can do about it.
