    Do any of bersa-tpr9-02-1200x628.jpg you know anything about this one? All steel and alloy uses Sig Sauer sights. Thanks, in advance!

    Full-length rails and looks like excellent workmanship. bersa-tpr9-01.jpg

    Dunno about the new Bersa but my CC .380, bought at a pawnshop for $175, nickel plated, runs 100 percent and shoots very well.

    Bersa seems to be inexpensive but works very well! Hope yours does to.

    Too many known guns in that price range for me.

    They run well, but it is NOT excellent workmanship, they don’t even claim that. It’s a good second tier brand, in my opinion a notch or two above Taurus and with a much better track record.

    Slugo, Bersa has a good reputation. I had a CC380 that did great.

    Not sure I’d call it excellent workmanship, but they are a good budget option.

    I've never bought a Bersa but have come close several times. They have the reputation of being a quality, reliable manufacturer.

    So long as it goes bang when it is supposed to, I have no criticism

    I am not a fan of ambi everything myself and like minimal controls especially if its a carry piece...

    I had a Bersa 9mm about 10 years ago. Thunder series I think it was. Good gun, reliable and fed the ammo I gave it.

    I don't know anything about the Bersa TPR9 but I use to own a Bersa Thunder 380. Here is a link to a Bersa gun forum. Someone there can probably answer your questions.

    I personally like guns made in Argentina. I don't have a Bersa but just haven't found one in a pawn shop I want. I buy a lot of second hand firearms. I have an Argentinian Hi Power, a Ballester-Molina 45 ACP,and an Argentinian 1891 Mauser. All are excellent shooters!

    TPR9 is just a slightly improved version of the Bersa Thunder 9mm which has been around for 25 years. Nothing great but it is a solid choice in its price range.

    I'm not much of a da/sa guy having only one and that's a 1988 s&w 669 ! But I like Bersa as a whole . Wife has a 15+1 thunder plus 380 and a 380CC version thats a smaller thunder model . A shooter friend has an older bersa da sa in 45 that's been a good defensive handgun .

    I've always found Bersa guns to be underrated. Reliable and built like tanks from my experiences.
