If the hammer didn't fall it wouldn't be decocked, would it?

middy i understand the whole decocking thing its just this one seemed like the hammer is really going to hit the firing pin..I know it wont atleast i'm hoping it wont ,it just look scary when its doing it..

Got one, love it! It is one of my CCWs. It feels great in my hands.

I have not heard of any problems with the Bersa 9mm UC and decocker problems. It has been on the market for a few years, so if there were issues with the decocker, I think it would be out by now, and fixed.

I think having a decocker vs. not having a decocker is a personal preference. Some people like them, some don't.

I do not think you will regret buying that Bersa. I have had a Thunder 9 for some years now and it has never missed a beat. Saving up for 9UC. Have you checked out

I'm wondering if the decocking action works on the same basis as my Beretta Px4 40, being a 2 part firing pin. When one decockes the Px4, the exposed firing pin, that you can see, actually rotates up and out of strike-path of the hammer. Which, from the sounds of it, the Beretta hammer hits hard, just like your guns hammer does when decocked.. Sounds loud/scary, but they work, well.

IF you hold the hammer back while decocking, you can, least with the Beretta, see the outer firing pin roll up and out of the striking path of the hammer.. as your decocker lever goes all the way down.

Looks like a nice sc 9mm you have there. How many rounds does it hold..?

I owned a Firestorm UC9 (same exact gun) it was a great weapon that got better every time I used it, you will be very happy with it I'm certain. The only real drawback is, she is a brick when loaded. You could definately benefit by joining Bersatalk, real knowledgable people and quite nice too.
