Bersa Thunder Capacity

The Bersa Thunder is chambered in .380ACP and feeds from single-stack magazines with a capacity of 8 rounds.  Aftermarket magazine manufacturers offer low-cost magazines as well as extended 10 round mags

Bersa Thunder Ergonomics

The Bersa Thunder is a small gun by every metric, though it does provide a full-handed grip for most users thanks to its extended floor plate on the magazine.  The magazine release is located on the right side of the frame behind and above the trigger, and the slide-mounted safety is easily reached by the user’s thumb.  

Bersa Thunder Fit & Finish

The Bersa Thunder is available in a wide variety of color schemes with stainless-steel and all-black being the most common colors seen.  Many of the parts including the frame are cast before being machined.  The double-action trigger has a pull weight over 10 pounds.

Fit and Finish

Bersa Thunder Concealability

Measuring 6.6 inches long, 4.2 inches tall and 1.25 inches wide, the Bersa Thunder is easily concealed in almost any attire and in almost any position.  The only downside to concealing the Bersa is the grip tang and exposed hammer which can potentially cause discomfort when appendix carrying.
