I have an opportunity to purchase a Bersa 83 at very reasonable price. At least the price is reasonable if it is as good as it looks.
I have tried searching the forums but find very little information on this model. Does anyone here own one and what are your thoughts about it? Are additional magazines available? Carry options?

Is it a model 83 or a 383 Bersa?

Mine does not have "Mod 83" on it, but it has to be a very similar model. If you search with "bersa and 380" you should find more information than you can digest in one evening. I love mine. Most owners love theirs as well from posts I have read. Shoots straight and feels right. I have introduced two new shooters to firearms with this piece and they both wanted one.

If I could carry in the PRK, I would use this as one of my primary weapons due to its size and reliability. The shop owner from whom I purchased mine told me that it is one his most popular sellers.

I want to thank you all for the replies. I went ahead and bought it and I'll be going to a show to look for mags next week.
