I bought at duotone Bersa Thunder 9 HC. I must say this baby is nice! I would give fit and finish a 7 out of 10. No worries though as the trigger is simply the best I have ever shot. The take down is also easier than anything I have ever seen. Shot 300 rounds of steel case and brass , fmj and hollowpoints uncleaned with no trouble. Not sure if ill put the zastava away just yet though. Any input on exeriences with this gun would be appreciated. God Bless!
When the power of love is greater than the love of power we will have peace!

Thanks for the review, when I see them at LGD I always wonder about them.

I sold my Thunder 9 and regret doing so. It was/is a great pistol.

I have owned a thunder uc9 for 7 years and have NEVER had one problem of any kind.

My former employer bought a box full to use a backup guns. They felt cheap to me and had what I thought of as a mushy, dragy, long trigger pull.
BUT, they were quite accurate and it was very easy to learn to work with the trigger pull perception. In short, most of us, including me, liked them much better than the Walther PPKs we had been using.
Note: I bought one of those silly looking drum magazines for it. It works better than the drum magazine of any other handgun I've tried or watched. Useful? No. Fun? OH yeah!
For the price, I think the Bersa Thunder is tops.

I've had my UC9 for about 2 years now, not a malfunction of any kind. It's a solid pistol.
From my understanding they're based off the Walther 88, an excellent design.
Here's an interesting video of 1500 rounds being put through a Thunder 9HC. Boring and doesn't prove much other than it's a solid performer.
