Bersa BP conceal=FUN!!

Picked one up at the LGS yesterday. I was surprised as they had a good selection of sub compacts. Nanos, LC9, XDS-9, and quite a few others. something about this little thing felt right so I took it home.

Went to the range today and shot 100 rounds of FMJ and 25 rounds of Golden Sabre +P. Ran perfect with no issues at all. I love this little gun.I'm not a sharp shooter but was able to put a nice group together at 15 yards. At 7 yrds, I blew the bullseye out and kept groups tight.

The good: Very nice trigger although a little creepy. I'm guessing 4 lbs. Nice!! Very Thin and conceals nicely. Large enough grip to get all of my fingers on including the pinky. Came with 2, 8 round mags. Seems to be very accurate although for some reason I was slightly more accurate with the +P ammo. Very inexpensive price point.

The bad: A little more travel on the pull than I like but it's tolerable. I was able to reset easily after getting used to where it broke. Although it has ambi mag release, it's hard to drop a mag quickly with one hand. That's really about it for now. I'm going to put a Glock rear night sight and a Sig front night sight on and shoot the hell out of this thing. I'll keep you posted but so far so good.

As a side note, I wore it all day. Work, sitting at my desk, in the car, etc...very comfy.

I'm going out to my buddy's farm today and put another 200 rounds through it. I played with it last night and confirmed that the mag release does indeed suck... but if that is all I have to ***** about, It's a keeper. LOVE the ergonomics....go get one!!

OK...put another 170 rounds through it. 150 FMJ, 20 Ferderal BPLE. No failures of any kind. I broke it down last night and gave it a good cleaning. Not as easy to pull down as a Glock(what is!) but it was very easy. I'm still diggin it

That's what they were saying about three years ago when news first broke that Bersa was making a single stack CC version of their popular .380 but in 9mm.

I knew it would be a winner.....every Bersa pistol is thus far!

Congrats.

I've had one in the duo tone finish for a few months and I find it to be a really nice little pistol. The short (Glock-like) trigger reset is what really helps it shine, IMO.

Yep, that's the one I fell in love with three years ago

I was interested in this pistol the minute I first read about it when it was released. However, another Glock Talk member who owned one said it was perfect until he'd put about 600 rounds through it, when the extractor went out.

According to him Bersa's extractor is made of a soft metal that wears quickly. That thread disappeared without any follow-up that I know of. Let us know about the progress you have because the BP9CC appears to be real competition for the S&W Shield.

Update: I am right at a thousand rounds and still have had no failures of any kind. Yesterday I put 50 FMJ GA, 100 Speer FMJ, and a box (50) of Underwood 124 +P through it. No problems. gave the gun a good cleaning and polished up the ramp and she's ready to go!

I finally found a holster that I like for it. www.deadeyeluke.com

They must be a decent gun for the money. I have not seen one at my LGS yet.

I have heard that several times on the net but my LGS carries them and 2 of my friends have bought them after shooting mine. My dad has a G19 and loves it but after shooting mine yesterday, he is going to get one as well.

A little while back the LGS got on in. I thought I'd try it.

Best I can remember this is the first Bersa I've owned.
Nice gun.

Magazines are expensive though but most of the name brand mags are too expensive now days.

Thanks for the update, Jim.

Something tells me I'll own this Bersa if I run into one before I run into a Shield.

Update...haven't shot the little BP much lately but have been carrying it a lot. Approx. 200 more down the pipe and no issues. I did stop off at Quick shot the other day and emptied 2 mags of Golden Saber +P 124gr and a box of fmj.
