Hey folks,
I am considering getting a Bersa/RSA BP9CC. I have never owned a Bersa and want to hear the pros and cons of the gun, the customer service, the manufacturer, your personal experiences and thoughts. This will be for CCW only in an IWB. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you,
I am Michael

Welcome to Bersa Pistol Forum from the "Lone Stat State" Micheal.
I have a couple of Bersas - BT22 - BT32 - BT380 - BT380CC and I am very happy with them and enjoy shooting them plus I carry my BT380CC. They shoot great and are well made and after many thousands of rounds I only had 2 problems.
1- Non Bersa magazines don't work well on Bersas. Some do and some don't.
2- Getting enough ammo to go to the range as offen as I would like.
Now there have been some problems with the Bersas just as all guns do but there are a lot of Bersa owners that are willing to share information on Bersas plus Bersa gives great life time service on their guns.
I don't have any working info on the BPcc 9mm since i have never fired one. I chose a BT380Cc because I am 5'6" and have small hands. Any way you really can not go wrong with a Bersa.

:cool:

Tony with your life depending on it, would you consider your weapon as a primary or back up CCW? I wish you had a BP9CC, but your info was invaluable. I am seeing plenty of ammo out there and prices coming down, more guns available. thank you for your response.

I do carry my Bersa as my primary weapon and my knife as my backup weapon (as they say on NCIS always carry your knife). I also have my bersas ready for home defense even if I am home. My wife is a great shot with her Bersa Thunder 32 and Bersa Thunder 22.
I would like to have a BP9CC some day but right now my retirement only allows me ammo and cleaning stuff for my entertainment.

Tony, were you able to get one or two of the ProMag magazines you were thinking about getting? I know you said you were thinking of it. Just curious. I am still very happy with the one I got for my Ruger LCP. Flawless so far. I've still got the 7 round one for my Bersa along with the 2 Bersa mags "marinating" full with 8 rounds each (!!!) to try and relax the springs to see if that might fix the 5th round jam problem I was experiencing. They've been sitting for almost 2 weeks and I am gonna try and use them this week so we'll see how effective that was ...

Not yet but soon. We spang for a Ruger LC380 for the wife. She needed a light gun and the Ruger LC380 is only about 17oz. where as her BT32 is 20oz. and my BT380CC is 21oz. However my next gun may be a BP9CC since Bersa has been very good to me.

I've heard good things about those. Better sights, better trigger than the LCP 380 from folks who've gotten them. Good choice. I do like my LCP, but the sights are real small (sorta like the Thunder CC which could stand to be a bit higher :() and the trigger has less pull-length than my LCP which is also a good thing. I hope she's happy with it.

Don't let her get too happy with it or she may not let you play with it!!!

Picked up a Bersa BP9CC for the wife a couple of weeks ago. Out of box, it needed a severe cleaning. After 150 rds of FMJ and 50 rds of JHP, it started to stovepipe on 3rd or 4th rd of magazine. Dropped it off at Alhman's in Southern MN and they made an adjustment to side thing. Seems to have fixed problem. On another note, UPS dropped return Box at front door and ran, despite 3 signature required stickers on box. good thing I live in rural MN

I am not sure what "side thing" is.....But do read Thread "Magazine Problem Fixed (I'm Pretty Sure...) by Robhic " It may help eliminate future problems. Please keep me or us posted as to future visits to the range and how it is to carry.
Thanks

found the repair slip, side ejector was off adjustment. I am carrying the BP9CC more than the wife is. I am using a Blackhawk size 3 & a baggy shirt and with the slimmer single stack, it does not make a lump.The Blackhawk is just a touch long for the BP9CC, maybe 3/4 of an inch. going to the range this afternoon.

low and right, but good groupings. The trigger was pinching wife's finger but after adjusting upward on trigger that has stopped.

I have the Bersa 45 Thunder UC Pro. I wanted a carry gun but wanted to keep 45 cal as have supply of 45 ammo. Light, compact, and extremely accurate. Have put close to 750 rounds through it and not one problem. Did clean out of box but am extremely impressed with the little gun. No regrets at all.
