Bersa Thunder .380 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This gun is more comfortable to shoot than the Walter. It could have been a Best Buy. However we choose to give it a Don't Buy based on a confusing safety mechanism.

A fixed barrel is the heart of any blowback system. Bersas installation of a breakdown lever (arrow) distinguishes it from the Walther. The front of the trigger guard is serrated for those who shoot placing the weak-hand index finger in this position. We do not recommend this.
The slide lock on the left side is another way the Bersa differs from the Walther.
An adjustable rear sight is unusual in such a small gun.
