New Bersa Thunder .380 w/ Laserlyte


LaserLyte® and Bersa® are offering a new combination pistol w/laser in the form of the Bersa Thunder .380, with matte blue finish (this is just the newest of several colors offered) and the LaserLyte Bersa laser CK-MS. I haven't shot one of these myself, but I've requested one for T&E. I'll let you know how it shoots once I've had it on the range. It will be a bit of a change-up for me, as for my off-duty gun I've always carried .38+P or 9mm. Never really done much with .380.

Anyway, I've talked to a couple of guys who like the Bersa but it's not widely known in my neck of the woods. That said, the only thing I've heard negative from guys who follow Bersa is a slight disenchantment with some of the hyperbole in their descriptions (most shooter are far more interested in performance and solid accessories than a "custom case with contrasting red zipper" they'll probably lose or discard anyway). Having the weapon arrive with an inside-the-pocket holster is a nice touch though.

More to follow.

The  LaserLyte® CK-MS lasers are described as being corrosion proof and are built of a glass-built nylon to reduce weight. The unit takes 2xA76 batteries.

LaserLyte CK-MS Features include:

  • Quick-mount
  • Ambidextrous, ergonomic switch
  • Programmable laser, constant or pulse mode
  • Auto-off
The Bersa .380 Thunder is Bersa's best-selling model. It and the LaserLyte together retail for $420.
