Heh, between the transfer fees and the suppressor units themselves, you'll spend way more than the guns are worth. :mrgreen:

I tend to doubt anyone is making threaded barrels for the Bersas. They're not in use by any LE or military agencies, which tends to severely curtail the market for things like suppressor-capable barrels. I get the impression the Bersas appeal mainly to nonenthusiasts looking for an economical defense gun, rather than serious shooters who would buy things like suppressors.

If you have the UC9, you should be able to buy a barrel for the full size HiCap9, which is about 3/4" longer and have it threaded by a machine shop. Call Dee at Eagle Imports. I think the barrels run about $50.00

You do realize that there is over $600 Federal Tax on suppressors. Over and above the cost, another$6-700, for the suppressor plus the transfer fees. Sure you wanna do that to a Bersa Thunder?

I just received my new Bersa Thunder 380 with a threaded barrel. This is the newest that they made, about a month ago. I wore my others out and couldn't find anyone to either build a new barrel or thread a 3.5 " barrel for an insert. Mike at Tornado Technologies said they wont touch Bersa products because the barrel steel is to hard and difficult to work with. I also called Jarvis and they said no they didn't make new barrels or work on Bersa. Sure would be nice to have a barrel or two extra to I wouldn't have multiple Bersa 380's.

I shoot a lot with suppressors so the threaded barrel is necessary.
