I found a Bersa 380 Thunder w/ black finish online that was for sale by a local fellow in my area. I really had my heart set on the CC version but I couldn't resist the price and options he was selling with it.

I bought it, sold it to my mom who has been wanting a 380. Yes, I sold it to her less than what I paid for it. I am a good son! haha

I then took the money and bought myself a 380CC with nickel finish.
Said and done I bought this for $70 after said deals.
The UBG IWB Striker holster came with the Thunder which I kept for my new CC.

What a great little gun.
I cant wait to put some rounds through it tomorrow.

Nice looking firearm. My wife carried a blued t.380cc for a couple months, The fit & finish on the nickel version looks a lot better. We ended up replacing hers because of the amount of safeties the gun has. I was a little nervous that it wouldn't go bang if she needed it to.

My new gun "high" went straight downhill today.
Went to the range and the gun malfunctioned almost every shot.

Every time I fired a shot, the mag would eject.
Almost every time I released the slide lock to chamber a round the mag would eject

The shear recoil would cause the mag to eject.
The recoil of the slide chambering a round would cause the mag to eject.

I tried the factory mag and two aftermarket mags and same thing happened.

I had to adjust my grip and physically hold the bottom of the mag tight to keep it in place.

What a bummer!

I guess it has to go back to Bersa

:smt076Read the thread below "Did I make a mistake?" I have not had a good day with my 380 either. Maybe they are not any good anymore. They will never get good word out of me. GOOD LUCK.:smt076

Backlash, where did you say you bought your 380 cc? Did you buy from an individual online or from a gun shop?

Gun shop.
I'm going to call them today and see what they suggest.
I bought it brand new on Monday.

Hopefully it will be something simple for the gunsmith to repair. If you had just bought it Monday, I would take it back, let them shoot it, then ask for a replacement. I have one and really like it, sounds like you might have gotten a lemon. Bersa has them come out every now and then. Just my .02.

I agree with Yoda.......er.....I mean tekhead. :yawinkle: Take the gun in and see what they can do for you. After all, you just got it. I am sure they will work with you on this.

Good luck! :smt023

Back to Bersa it went today.
:(

Very disappointing.
When it comes back it will take many rounds through it before I trust it as a carry gun.
