I need input on Bersa BPCC 9

I've been looking for a different concealed carry pistol and you guys have given me some good advice and suggestions but I stumbled across a Bersa BPCC9 today. Best trigger pull I have seen since the Sig P320 at half the price. I need some info and input from y'all on what you know or have heard about this weapon. I've read reviews and the majority of them are pro but I'd like some real world info.
 

Personally I do like Bersa, But the best I can say is for you to do alot of searching and reading just what is posted on the Bersa BPCC 9. Everyone has a opinion and listen to what they have to say. I know the weapons I like and own may not be what others like so we all have opinions on what we like. I have never shot a BPCC 9 so I can say what I like or don't like. But I do have the Thunder CC 380 and like it a lot. But my wife liked it better so she took it away from me LOL. Search Google and the other search engines and read what is posted. Look on Youtube and watch the videos on how others feel that are actually shooting right on the video and see what they have to say. In the end it all depends on your own judgement and thoughts.
 
Howdy,

I had never heard of the BPCC9 before so I googled it and here's a review that I found:

Bersa BP9CC Review

The guy gave it a positive review and there's a link to a video of them shooting the pistol.

HTH

P.S. Ignore all the post from the haters just because it doesn't have a brand name like Sig or HK.
 
Sorry! I got the letters and numbers kinda messed up but you got the point. I had seen this particular review but I appreciate the input!
 
I haven't shot it. I haven't heard anything positive or negative about it, because I do not know anyone carrying it. One concern I had immediately upon seeing the specs is the Sig Sauer front sight and Glock rear sight, which could complicate things when replacing/upgrading those. By the way, you can get a S&W M&P Shield for almost the same price ($35 more). I know many people carrying the S&W M&P Shield and I heard a lot of good things about it. I don't own it as I do not have a need for it (as of now).

As for the Bersa Thunder .380 ACP, I really like it, but I don't own it as I do not have a need for it. The Bersa Thunder .380 ACP and the Bersa BPCC 9mm are completely different firearms. The Thunder has a blowback design, while the BPCC has a locked breech design. Apples and oranges.
 
I've got a friend who swears by the M&P. He bought one for his wife. But I have a female friend who hates hers! Odd isn't it? I have relatives who carry the XDS, Glock, and Sig P938. They all love their guns. I'm trying not to spend a crap load of money, but I wish gun manufacturers would make a quality weapon for the average Joe on a slim budget!

Well, have you tried the S&W M&P Shield 9mm? You can have it for Link Removed with thumb safety and for $395.29 without (+$12.99 for shipping, + any transfer & background check fees). You can also have your Bersa BPCC 9mm for $360.39 (+$12.99 for shipping, + any transfer & background check fees).

Note that I am only recommending the S&W M&P Shield 9mm as I know this gun has been thoroughly tested during training at places like Tactical Response. If you feel happy with the Bersa BPCC 9mm, look for reviews from well-respected people that really stress test this gun, such as:

 
Please also consider all the other costs, such as for a holster or for spare magazines. Saving $30 on a gun you can't get a decent holster for or you can't get spare magazines for doesn't make much sense. Also, what's the availability of spare parts and what's the long-term warranty. Saving in the short run may cost you in the long run.
 
A good video of an acid-test on a Bersa Thunder9. 1500 rounds non-stop pouring water from buckets over the pistol to cool it every so often.


These are very dependable pistols. There are service places in the U.S. and there are loads of holsters that fit these just fine.
 
FYI: Link Removed != Link Removed. They are completely different firearms, e.g., hammer-fired vs. striker-fired.
 
Bersa makes good guns. I have a Bersa Thunder .32 acp and it has 1,000 flawless rounds since unboxing. I know someone with a BP9cc and he says his has been flawless also. I shot a mag from the BP9cc and it seems like a good gun. Has a nice trigger. :dance3:
 
I have, currently, 2 S&W weapons that I have had major issues with new out of the box! I been bitten twice! It's not that I don't like the S&W's, I've bought TWO, but after sending TWO back for repairs, I begin to have trust issues with that manufacturer! Sure S&W repaired them at no cost, but I went two months without while the repairs were made and I didn't even get through 50 rounds with either one before I had to send them back again for the same issue! To me, that's kinda a no brainer. That's why I asked for input. I'm not trying to be a jerk just saying!

Which S&W weapons? What issues? Did they get fixed? How did they get fixed? Any information would be quite educational.

As for the Shield, James Yeager's had 12,000 rounds though it with no problems as of May 2014.

 
Both are Mod. 686 .357 Magnums. With .38 special rounds they fire beautifully, and accurately, but with .357 magnum rounds, they lock up! And when I say lock up I mean cylinders, triggers and hammers! I have a Colt Detective Special in .38 Special that I've never had a problem with. These have locked twice and have been sent back twice. I just got them back and I haven't tried them out yet to see if the problems are fixed.

Interesting, and some people say revolvers are more reliable than semi-autos. I am in no-way a revolver expert, but there is that issue of the shorter .38 Special round depositing burned powder in the .357 Magnum chamber, potentially leading to lockup issues with .357 Magnum rounds later on. Proper cleaning is imperative. Did S&W gave you any explanation?
 
No, S&W was mum about the problem however these were cleaned out of the box new and taken to the range. Only 12 rounds of .38 special were put through them before I switched to .357 magnum. The one thing S&W told me was not to use reloads as they could potentially cause these issues. I don't use reloads. The .357 magnum rounds I shot were factory made ammo.
 
I may should have cleaned them between times but I wouldn't have thought to do so. My father in law carried this same weapon as a patrolman and swore by them. I also have an RG .38 Special that's a great pistol but it's like the 686's and the XD9 I own, just a tad too big to carry concealed.
