Great gun for the price, I've been using it as my truck gun with no issues. I've put about 500 rounds through it without fail.

After putting several hundred rounds through my original Bersa Thunder black frame, I thought it was time to upgrade the "looks". Actually, my wife, after taking it to the range today, decided it was HER new gun. This particular model only comes with one magazine (7 round), but I have quite a few laying around extra. Only had one FTF on the last cartridge in the magazine. Since being new, it is a bit stiffer out of the box, but the sights were dead on. Overall...the quality for the price cannot be beat. The picture does not do it justice on the nickel finish. A great looking and great shooting gun.

Third handgun purchase from Buds, and the process was seamless as always. I literally could not purchase this gun locally due to its popularity. This is for my wife to use as cc. After an initial clean up I was unable to fire a single full magazine and shorly thereafter I couldn't even chamber a round. I couldn't even manually slide a round from the magazine into the chamber. Upon close inspection I noticed a very sharp bur at the barrell chamber. I did a careful polish job until the entire facing was smooth as glass. This gun now runs flawlessly and is the most accurate .380 I've ever shot. Even my wife who is just getting into shooting is driving tacks with it. I've put 3 different cheap FMJ through it now without a hiccup. Amazing groups that I just didn't expect from this little gun. Now, I could not give 5 starts simply due to the lack of quality control from the factory. I realize some of the more stringent quality control shortcuts may help keep the costs down on these guns, but I don't think a polish job should be required by the end consumer. Fit and finish on the gun is flawless and break down is a cinch. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another Bersa.

This is my 8th or so purchase from Buds. I received my Bersa in 3 days. I order a rubber wrap around grip for more comfort. Once the grip came in, I took it to the range and put 100 rounds of fmj and 25 rounds of critical defense ammo through it. Both functioned flawlessly!! Spring is coming so this will make a nice back-up piece. I highly recommend the item

This was my first purchase from Buds, and only my fourth experience with a .380. I purchased the Bersa after finding mostly positive reviews, because so many guns today are solid black and frankly not very interesting to look at and hold. As this was a gun for target shooting and not self-defense, I wasn't deterred by the weight. The firearms in appearance and "feel" was all that I was expecting. It is a very nice finish, grips well. The three-dot sights are very clear and easy to align. Unfortunately I seem to have gotten one that shoots low. The grouping is good, easily around 1.5 inches at 25 feet, but lands about 5 inches below point of aim. I do not have this trouble with any other firearms. This was with Herter's Select 92 gr FMJ. I will try other brands and see what a 200 round breaking in period and cleaning will do. I had some initial failure to feeds on the first couple of magazines, which stopped on the third magazine and beyond. In addition to shooting low, it was also firing a little to the left. After trying some other ammo, I will see if I need to adjust the rear sights. There is an adjustment screw for this. The recoil is noticeable. Not as hard as a Ruger LCP or Taurus 738, but heavier than a Glock 42. I don't think a 100 round session would be too uncomfortable. If the accuracy issue improves, I would have no problem recommending this as good value for a sub-$300 firearm, and with that address, is might also be a good carry piece. Field stripping of this firearm is almost as simple as it gets. You do have to grip the firearm normally, then use your index finger to depress AND HOLD the take-down lever while pulling back the slide. I would say this is even easier to strip than a Glock. I was pleased to find wooden grips are available at a reasonable price from 3rd party vendors. This should really improve the appearance even more. Overall this is a well made firearm, attractive, reliable, easy to use and clean. The safety stays put in either position, and functions as a decocking mechanism as well. Being double and single action, if needed you have restrike capability, though depending on the circumstances it may be better to rack the slide and put a different round in the chamber. That said, would buy Bersa products again, and would buy from Buds.
