First of all Hello Forum members. I just picked up a Bersa T9mmUC Pro today and noticed that the muzzle end of the barrel looked like it is counter bored. Also, the end of the slide is not concentric with the barrel. There is about a 16th of a inch gap between the barrel and slide. Has anyone else noticed this? I shot about 70 rounds without a hickcup. Everthing was within a 10" group. Not to bad for first time out. I be looking forward to seeing your replys. Thanks!!!

Welcome to Bersa Pistol Forum, glad to have you on board.
I do not have a Bersa Thunder UC9mm Pro so i don't know if you have a problem or not. If you purchased it new and it fires without any problem it may be a normal condition and I too would be interested to hear from any of our members that have a Bersa Thunder UC9mm Pro.

Thanks for the responce, after further inspection it looks like it was built that way. BT9mmUC P1.jpg BT9mmUC P2.jpg It kind of suprizes me that the muzzle end of the slide and barrel do not lock up. When I look at the end of the slide it looks like the hole for the barrel is bored at an angle. It's not worn because the blueing is still fresh. Just wondering if that is the way it's manufactured, or if I got a odd ball. It seems to shoot ok. I did do some work to it, polished the ramp and all the places where I could see where their would be friction. Oh! The area I'm talking about is above the barrel, it's the shaded area on the slide.

Mine looks the same way. It is a floating barrel. I think/hope both of ours are ok.....

Thanks hobbles, I think I understand the reasoning behind it. I just wanted to make sure. I've never seen anything like it before though. I had a Colt Officers 45 before and that thing was tight as a drum at the end of the barrel and slide, but the timing on that was picky as hell. On the Bersa it might not look so hot but works great. Probabley why it will not hand up.

I kinda like mine also, after I changed the rear sight on it. I didn't like the "combat sight" setup.

hobbles do you hold the 6 oclock with the new sight? if so, which sight did you change to? I'm not crazy about the combat sight either.

Yep, I like the 6 o'clock hold too.

Bottom of page. I got the number 9 rear sight. I want to try the number 10 but it only comes in contrast. About $60 where as the #10 was $48 delivered. (if I remember right)

Now I have the newer Bersa, serial number starts with a "C" so it will take the Sig dove tail cut. BUT!! it will NOT take the front sight. Something is/was wrong with it, it slid right on though. I bought the Hiviz sight setup and they both fit, just not the right height, put it back as combat sights. Stock sights are #8 rear and #6 front. You want the sights from Sig that will fit their p220 and p226.

Hobbles, thanks for all of the info and the link. Very good info to know. I saw some HiViz sights that I like red dot in front. But I have to figure out if it will be the right heith. When I shot my Bersa for the first time yesterday, I was right on target but my spread was not so good, about a 10" spread around the bulls eye at 21 feet. Usually I can hold a groug of 50 shots to around the size of a baseball on the bull. I don't shoot further than 10 yards with a handgun. If I go further than that I use an AR.

hobbles, I envy you. Sure wish I could just go outside and shoot. I like the shootin bench as well. On everything I read I think it said the sights are #8 front and rear. I wish I could use a sight like that, but my old eyes need all of the help they can get. Their is a formula for figuring out the sight heigth, I just have to find it. www.dawsonprecision.com SIGHTS FRONT Category
Here are the sights I think I'm going to go with. Then I'll have to figure out which rear sight to go with to get the 6 o'clock hold.

I'm getting mixed info on the sight numbers. Some say the front and rear are the same, some say there #6 and #8.

My thinking is to get the front or rear sight that you prefer or suits your eye best, then adjust the height of the other one. So in my case I would go with the red front sight because I can see it best and adjust the heith of the rear sight.

Mornin 94user,
You said both the front and rear sights are the same number? (#8) I read that and I also read that stock, the front is #6 and the rear is #8.
I REALLY need to know which is correct.
I went with the number 9 rear sight from Sig and it gave me the lollypop POI.
I also, like you, want an easier front sight to see. I'm just not sure which sight number to buy. I want to keep the front sight the stock number,, what ever that is.
Where did you get the info on them being both the same and which front sight did you end up with?
Thanks for your help.
