My knowledge on the Bersa 380's is limited to the series running back seven plus years and I do not know of any that were produced without the magazine disconnect. There are many, including some on this forum who choose to disable the mag disconnect over the factory recommendation. I personally like the magazine disconnect as an additional safety and do not recommend disabling this safety feature, but that is a decision for each shooter and I firmly believe in the old philosophy of to each, his own. . I bought a Walther P series 380 and got rid in less than 30 days and that was one of two major reasons I dumped it and traded even for a second, used, BT380. As The BT 380 was my only carry for five years, I have to admit and was a bit disappointed when I got my first 9UC and it did not have that feature.
