I really like everything about the Bersa Thunder 9mm except for the sights and the finish. I've deceided to have it Cerakoted. I can save $50 if I just send them the parts to coat and dissamble and reassemble it myself. Does anyone know where I can get the information to disamble and assemble. About all I can find is how to take the slide off on youtube. That's a no brainer but, i'm not all that good at internet searching apparently. Would appreciate some help. :confused:

Google "dismantling guide for bersa bp9cc pistol". it is a PDF file.
Hope this is what you want.

Mornin clampit,
If you run across a Bersa 9 UC disassemble manual, would you let me know? I keep looking (for months) and the only thing I can come up with is my posts. I need to find out how to replace my firing pin on the new model.
Thanks,,,,,

Sure will hobbles, unfortunatly the information from Tony1990 wasn't it. It was for a 9cc air pistol. But, at least it got me looking in a differant direction. There has to be something some where on it, just haven't found it yet. If you find it before I do please let me know as well.

hobbles, I was able to find the exploded parts view for he 45, the 9 and 40 also apply. It's not quite what I was hoping for. Not a very good one. But, it's a start.
http://pdf.textfiles.com/manuals/FIREARMS/bersa_45.pdf I think their is a exploded parts view in the manual we got with the gun. Not very good though. I'm traveling back home now from TX to AZ. I'll check when I get back home.

"WOW" I did not know they made a Bersa BP9cc air pistol.
Sorry about that, now I know why they say you can not believe everything you download from the internet.

Mornin clampit,
Thanks, I already have that one and have used it before. I also found this one. (The words aren't in English, but the pictures are) But it's the old model, with the spring under the rear sight. I'm looking for the new model. I'm trying to find out what I DON'T need to take apart to replace my firing pin. There's not much info out there. All I get is "Take it to a repair shop" I'd rather do it myself and do it right. I'll keep looking too. I called repair shops and Bersa to see if they had a manual but nope, they don't.
I've also contacted this place and was told they don't have what I'm looking for and aren't going to make one either,, bummer.

If it were me I would eat that $50 in a heartbeat but that is just me......I'm just lazy I guess. I just removed a safety lever from an M&P 45c and installed frame plugs. More stress than I care for but a gunsmith won't remove safeties.

Hi warbird1, I know, I may have to eat the $50 bucks. Can't find any information on disambly and assembly. It's not the money, it's just that I like doing things myself. A control thing plus I would know the gun inside and out. I like to do things like polish the ramp and do trigger jobs. I'm thinking I can tare into it and if I can't do it, they can always bail me out.

hobbles, if my memory serves me well. You said you wanted to remove the firing pin to clean the area. But was wondering what was under the rear sight. I removed my rear sight and replaced it. There is nothing under the rear sight, just the dovetail groove.

Mornin clampit,
You have the new model like I do. The older model has a spring under the rear sight that holds the firing pin in, as you see. (14th picture down) The new model doesn't. I want to replace my firing pin and the firing pin spring.

Evening hobbles, When I send mine out to be cerakoted I will have to take the slide down completly and well as the frame. I have a feeling that in order to take the slide down to get to the firing pin you will have to take out item #13 and 14 (owners manual exploded parts view) It looks like the firing pin has a recess in it towards the spring end and I'm thinking you will have to push in on item#18 and rotate it so the firing pin will come out. I haven't tryed it yet and I'm holding off until I get more info or ready to send it in for cerakote.

Are you looking at the same one I have or do you have another one?

Mornin hobbles, I was refering to the Owners Manual page 10. Thanks for posting the one you have that will help me out even though it's the older one. I'll try to post the one I have.

clampit,
Here is the list that goes with the the break down I sent you.




Does the inside of your slide look like this?

Yes, my slide looks exactly like that. I think if you knock out those two pins at the end of the toothpick and push in and rotate the firing pin safty (just to the right of the pins in the pictrure) it might unlock the firing pin. You may have to push in on the firing pin also.

I agree with you about the 2 pins have to come out.
I like the idea that you have to hold the trigger in so the saftey bar will hold the auto pin saftey in so the firing pin can move and fire the round off. That's a nice saftey. Kinda like the Rugar Blackhawk pistols.
So the first one that has to remove his firing pin, take pictures,, ok?
When are you going to start taking yours apart? I've done a little and have pictures of most of it, if you need any help, just ask.
I'm hoping to learn more about mine.
The spring on the hammer gets tricky when you put it back together, but I took pictures of the weapon before I took it apart, that saved my butt.
