I bought this Bersa Thunder 22 a few months ago, and I'm pretty happy. It was easy to get from Buds, and it was brand new with no defects as far as I can tell. Bersa says that it will work with high velocity ammo, and maybe they should state that more strongly, that the Bersa NEEDS high velocity ammo to feed properly. But I found some really good ammo, like the CCI Blaser, and Velocitor, and I haven't heard anybody mention Fiocchi ammo, but I really like their Canned Heat, in the 333 round cans. I have barely had one FTF in 2 or 3 cans. It's real fast good stuff. Of course the Bersa is not a target pistol. I am not a fantastic shot, but I can never make a group smaller than 3 or 4 inches at 7 yds. In comparison I was testing out target pistols today at the range, and with the S&W 22a-1 I was able to make a smaller than 1 1/2 " group with my first try at 7 yds. But the Bersa is a nice sized pistol, which you could put in your pocket if you wanted to, and don't let anybody tell you that a 22 is not dangerous. You can nail them a few times with the recoil so manageable. etc. But thank you Bud's for making this gun available. For the price you can't beat it.

Great little pistol. Had a few FTF in the first two magazines. After that, no problems at all. Cycles well, eats any ammo I have given it and is a blast to shoot. My buddy shot two mags through it and wants one now. Fits the hand well. Service from Buds was good.

Just got back from my first range trip with this pistol. I had great luck with it, no jams or misfires at all. I ran 200 rounds of Winchester T22 thru it and 50 Remington jhp's. I found it accurate and fun to shoot. I had two extra magazines from the manufacturer's suggested website, and all functioned properly. I got groups in the four inch range all the way out to fifteen yards, which is pretty good for a gun this size.

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.

I order this gun as fun wallther ppk jame bond clone. The process of ordering from Buds was amazingly smooth. I ordered on Friday and picked it up from my FFL on wednesday. I just got back from the range. I took my Buckmark and the Bersa 22. The Buckmark is for sure the better gun and for me about twice as acurate. But with that being said I love this gun. Fun to shoot and just one or two FTE with the 36 grain stuff. The 40 grain stuff no issues. I put most CCI rounds thru it and a bunch of thunders. All fired just a couple FTE over 300 rounds. and then very easy to clear, I am basically a novice with any fire arm but field stripping it is so easy even I can do it.. I would highly recommend this gun as a high quality fun plinker. I would buy this again.

I have owned a Bersa Thunder 9mm for several years and have put several thousand rounds through it with great results, so I thought I would try another Bersa product. I wanted a 22 for my wife and kids to shoot and something that I could use to work on shooting fundamentals, without spending tons on ammo. I ordered this gun from Buds and had it within a week. I just took it to the range for the first time today and I am very impressed. I put 200 CCI min-mags through it without a single jam. I was grouping 1.5-2 inches at 20 feet right out of the box. I did read online that others had jamming issues. However, I noticed that many olther manufacturers had similar issues (Sig Mosquito, Walther P22, etc), so in my non-expert opinion, I think it might just be a 22 semi-auto issue. There is obviously much less powder in a 22 round and therefore less power for ejecting the spent casing. Again, I am not an expert, so this is just my opinion. I did read that on many of the 22 semi-autos, this one included, people had good luck with CCI mini-mags, so I just bought them right from the start. I can't find CCI mini-mags locally (Minneapolis area) in bulk ammo, but Wal Mart carries boxes of 100 for $6.97, or something like that, so it is still cheap for plinking.
