Purple Bersa

Firearms distributor Davidson’s is now selling a new, exclusive Bersa Thunder sporting a purple anodized finish on the frame. The slide has a matte dark blue finish.

“With its 8 round total capacity and smooth trigger pull, we believe the Bersa Thunder .380 is a perfect firearm for anyone looking for a reliable concealed carry option,” said Matt Nicholson, vice president of sales at Davidson’s. “To make the classic Thunder .380 even more exciting, we decided to bring it to market in purple.”

The Thunder .380 is Bersa’s best selling firearm. It is a compact handgun that has been compared to the Walther PPK.

    Nice color scheme. Only thing wrong with it is that it's a DA/SA "Crunchenticker" --first trigger pull is long and crunchy but then the following shots are real smooth and go, "tick! tick! tick!"

    It's also too big and bulky for a 380. I'd rather have a smith and Wesson Shield in 9mm with slide safety delete or Glock 42 in .380.

    I want that first all important shot to be precise and following shots to be the same.Nice color scheme, though.

    Every time you pull it, lyrics from "Beat it....." comes to mind.
