Gun Report

Bersa Thunder Pro Ultra Compact 9mm Luger

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Bersa is also known as the mini 9 or the mini Firestorm, as the grips show. This handgun proved reliable with all loads tested. The double-action first-shot pull was long but smooth, and the single-action trigger was downright pleasant to use. We liked the ergonomic and ambidextrous safety. The pistol excelled in rapid-fire combat groups.

The Bersa's dual wound spring guide rod helped control recoil.
The front strap of the Bersa features molded in finger grooves and stippling that allows excellent purchase.
Our test gun came with Bersa's 13-round magazine. New magazines run $45 from Bersa, but cost less elsewhere, often around $30 used.
The left side of the Bersa features a takedown lever, slide lock, and safety. Like many compact handguns, it appeared to have been carried more than fired. The current models have a slot for an accessory at the front.
