Yeah I usually just go all black with my guns, but I think it would be cool to have a set of grips laying around to spice things up a bit. They have several other colors as well.

Where did you get them? What other colors and do they make them for a thunder .45?

I have the wrap around rubber grips on my Thunder .380 and love them! Gives my big hands a way to hold onto this little gem.

New member. First post. Please be gentle! :) I bought a Bersa Thunder .380 CC a few weeks ago. I like it, but it is a bit small for my hands.

Finding replacement grips for the CC model is impossible. No one makes them, so I have a friend of mine (a cabinetmaker) making me some wood grips a little bit thicker than the OEM grips. I think it's gonna be good. I put some cardboard shims in between the OEM grips and the frame. Made the gun much more friendly for my larger hands. Can't wait for the finished product to be ready.

One other thing: What's up with the CC models and those tiny, little excuses for sights?! It's like my gun has goosebumps! Getting used to them but man, they are small!!!

Welcome aboard from the Gunshine State.
Those itty bitty sights are to prevent snagging in a quick shoot scenario. The CC is a "Point and Shoot" gun. As far as the small grips, you can get a rubber slip-on grip for it.

Thanks for the welcome and the 2 replies. I guess I should've thought about the snag-free aspect of the sights. I suppose that since my other pistols have stock sights and I don't really worry about snagging, it's not something I think about. I wanted to at least TRY to be accurate shooting my Thunder! :) I got a Remora holster for it. I figure that will be a good all-around holster. No clip IWB holster, for storage and between the seat and console of my van.

And where did you find larger grips for the CC model? I looked forever and couldn't find any for the CC model. All after-market grips said "not for CC models" so that's when I had my friend agree to make me some wood grips. Can't wait to get them from him.

Run a Search. Enter: Hogue Hand All for Bersa 380. These are a rubber sleeve that fit tightly over your grip. I haven't used these, so I have no idea about how "tacky" they feel or if there's a tendancy to catch on your clothing.
These are the ones that should fit, but Bersa is not specifically listed. They do show a Walther PPK. I would check first even though they're only $9. They are supposedly tough to get on, but won't shift around under use.

If you get them, keep us posted with a product review.

IIRC, I emailed Hogue about Bersa grips. They told me they didn't make any for the CC model. Slip-on rubber isn't my thing. I had some on my Glocks and they squirmed around! :mad: So I got the Talon grips that are like skateboard tape. I like them a LOT. Great hold and ain't nuthin' slippin' with those bad boys on!

I don't think this will work, at least not the Jr. Small size sleeve. I have a new Bersa T380(not cc) and a Walther P22. I just ordered/received/installed the Bersa factory walnut/wood grips. These increase the width of the standard Bersa grip by just under .2 inches. So far I am very pleased with the feel. And size of the gun with these new grips. It certainly improves the look of the gun (mine is the all black model). Now the grip on my P22 seem very small. Yesterday I purchased and installed the Hogue Jr. Small size grip sleeve on it. Getting it on was a real challenge but I finally got it. The Hogue sleeve enlarges the grip on the P22 and makes it much closer in size and feel to the Bersa. Based upon the problems I had getting the sleeve on the P22 I don't see how it would ever fit onto the Bersa. Tomorrow - weather permitting - I am off to the range to test out my work.

Thanks for that grip information. I have the regular BT380 and the grip size seems O.K. for me although plastic really isn't my "thing". Maybe after I shoot it some more I'll want to customize it. Mine too, is the regular black one, but none of the Bersa offered grips seem to pique my "want factor"......well maybe the smooth Walnut ones (#PGS16610). I understand that all of the grips add some girth to the grip width. At least with a solid piece of wood, I could sand a little off and not ruin their appearance. I really like this little gun and it may be around for a long time, so spending a few dollars won't be a problem. But first, I need a spare magazine or two. I like to have at least three magzines for my semi-autos because the magazines are generally the weak link.
I've pretty much decided that I have all of my gun niches filled, but between here and the other forums, I read such great things about the BT22 that I'm starting to get that itch. I've only held off scratching it because they seem to be picky about ammo and the selection of .22 lr is not too good right now. I'm a patient guy, so maybe next year. (It took two years to acquire my Taurus PT-908.) I have a .22 Walther PPK clone like this: Erma Excam RX22 : Semi Auto Pistols at GunBroker.com (not quite as pretty, wood grips, no box, no manual), so a BT22 would be a replacement upgrade within that same niche'.
