First purchase from Buds and an online dealer. Ordered the Bersa 45 on Monday, November 9th in the late afternoon. Arrived at my ffl on Thursday, November 12th around lunch time. Veterens Day was Weds. the day before. I live in S. Texas which ins't that far from Kentucky, but what great service! Thank you so much for The easy transition.
As for the pistol, the Bersa Thunder 45 UC is sweet so far. When I picked it up it was dry and dirty, but cleaned up very easy in no time. Got it to the range Saturday afternoon and put 100 rounds of 230 grain FMJ through it. Operated wihout any flaws. No FTF or FTE. Bersa recommends a 200-300 round break in period with factory FMJ rounds before any other type is used, and I intent to do so before JHPs go through it. The pistol feels good in the hand, easy to get a good grip on. I have medium size hands. Awesome trigger, DA is not as heavy as I expected, long but smooth. No grainy feeling. Clean short reset. SA is very light and short. Easy pistol to shoot fast. Recoil is more straight back into the hands and arms. Very little muzzle flip. Comfortable and easy to shoot over and over.
I was interested in this pistol because I'm a lefty and like ambidextrous controls. I swapped the magazine release in 5 minutes. Clear instructions in the manual. Big fan of the decocker and slide stop. Controls are alittle chunky, but do not get in the way.
I'm also 5'9" about 160 lbs. This pistol is easy to conceal on my frame. Would recommend to anyone that wants a .45 power in a smaller package. Not that heavy to carry in my opinion.
Once again thany you Buds, will be a repeat customer in the future.
