The trigger on the Bersa is pretty smooth but had some creep. So I polished the trigger sear and hammer sears and now is really smooth. Easy mod with a dremel and some Flitz.

Also been wanting a flat base mag to drop in my pocket easier so I took a spare mag I bought and trimmed the finger extension. Works pretty good. Just thought I would post for you Bersa fans.

thanks for the info. I hope to pick up my gun in 9 days due to CA waiting period.

Think you could have used the bottom off a CC mag they should swap. I know factory says CC mag doesn't work in Thunder But they seem to work in mine so far in my tests
I guess some Thunders like and some don't

This is a perfect example of making small modifications to improve a gun for your use after careful consideration, rather than rushing willy-nilly into modifying it "just because."

I've seen flat-bottoms for the Bersa mags on eBay, but never tried to get one. The guy who had 'em was in Alaska, and was selling them in pairs, I think, looking for about $15 as a starting bid (if I recall correctly.)

I have at least one flat bottom mag for all my carry pistols. These mags are a breeze. Try doing this on a PA-63 mag floorplate. They're milled from solid aluminum. What a PITA!

Another popular mod on the Bersa is to remove the magazine safety. It's easy and reversible. All you need is a flathead screwdriver. Remove the right grip. Toward the bottom of the right side, there's a little spring. Use the screwdriver to reach in pop it out. Now the mag disconnect bar slides out. Done.

Make sure it back in if sent for warranty work They will replace and charge for it Also if you were to sell or trade pistol please fix back. New owner might shoot some one by accident thinking it was as delivered from factory with mag safety. .

He only modified the pinky plate on the mag, why would that need to be fixed??
