I may have seen this before in a previous post but every now and then my slide on my BT380cc will not lock open. It is not that great of a problem. The gun is pretty much flawless except for that and I can live with it but does anyone know of a fairly simple fix other than shipping it off to the manufacturer?

Check if the slide catch is loose since only a spring keeps it in place. If there is any damage to the spring or catch you can get both from Eagle Imports for about $10. It is very easy to replace since you don't need hammers, screw drivers, wrench's just a small needle nose pliers to put the spring on.

Good luck

Best not to use the slide lock as a "slide release". I always pull the slide back and let it fly forward to feed a new cartridge. Reypnerson's did a short video stressing this for the Bersa. The gunsmiths feeling was that the slide was soft steel and the engagement area becomes rounded when folks use the slide lock as a "slide release". I think that is logical.
