Bersa T22M Thunder 22 22 Long Rifle 3.5" 10+1 Black Syn Grip [T22M]
by Douglas D
Date Added: Sunday 27 November, 2011
I purchased this gun several months ago as a trainer for the Bersa Thunder 380. I thought is would be a cheap shooting training tool for the .380 as it's the exact same size and feel and uses the same holsters etc. It is very picky about the ammo you run through it. I haven't tried them all, but the Remington bulk stuff doesn't feed reliably at all. The Federal bulk stuff is a little better but still experiences about 1 failure per magazine. I have put several hundreds of rounds through it now with little improvement. In defense of the brand, my Bersa Thunder 380 has been flawless, but I think a very short barreled .22 blowback design is just not all that reliable. If you read all of the reviews, you notice that the best reviews seem to be on longer barreled versions, particularly, the Browning Buckmark and the Ruger Mark III's. I believe the .22 pistol is just finicky because of it's lack of power to reliably cycle the slide. The Sig's, Smiths and all of the rest seem to experience the same lack of consistency. It is amazing however, how good you can get shooting this small of a .22 pistol if you do it enough. It would just be more of a pleasurable experience if you weren't constantly trying to figure out why it "jammed this time".
I will still give it a 3 star rating because of it's accuracy for such a small gun, but please decide what you want it for, before buying this one. I don't think I'd even trust it as a woods or camping gun but only as a training tool.
