Bersa Thunder Pro XT Out of the Box and into the Match Review!

Team Defender Shooter Patrick Kelley is back with another segment in his “Out Of The Box To Match Review” series. This time it’s Bersa-nal! *cough* Bad puns aside, this is another great review that you don’t want to miss. Patrick takes a Bersa Thunder Pro XT 9mm straight from the box—with no modifications—gives it a splash of oil, and shoots a Steel Challenge match with it. You may have thought Bersa only offered inexpensive personal protection-type pistols, but this video may change your mind.

Patrick Kelley also stated: “This may be the BEST out of the box trigger of any DA/SA gun I have ever handled! Not only is the trigger fantastic it ran flawlessly for 450 rounds and proved to be a sub 2″ gun at 25 yards.” A pretty glowing review coming from one of the shooting industry’s most prolific competitors and commentators.

  1. It looks good, I’m a lefty also, and appreciate the ambi controls, I’ll have to find one of these to check it out myself, thanks for the review…

  2. What a shame there is no attachment rail on the bottom.Not needing a rail is one thing but not having it is another. That killed it for me.

    • Edward, this was designed as a competition gun from the ground up. The designers did not add a rail as one would not need one for competitive shooting.

  3. Looks very promising, and 5 magazines is just about unheard of in a package deal. This looks like a great competitive shooting pistol in minor power factor, but it would also be a good home defender and personal protection choice. If you want a large frame pistol for any of those purposes, this is a great choice. I’d like to see a report on this pistol at 1,000 and then 3,000 rounds to see how well it endures.

  4. I like the Bersa thunder in 380, my wife has one as an every day carry gun it’s well made and shoots accurately and flawlessly, I heard they made this in 9mm and wanted to know more, I carry a Springfield XD mod2 and wont change but this would be a good addition to my collection
