Default Safety is breaking the bones in my fingers on my new 380 Plus

It is almost impossible to take the safety off on my new Thunder 380 Plus. Has anyone else had this issue? Ouch!!

What I can tell you from my personal experience is that the decocker (safety) can be very stiff, but loosens with use. Recent events have shown me this is a issue that can be fixed. My decocker lever snapped off and my Bersa Thunder was sent in for repair. When it returned the decocker was as smooth as butter. Contact your local Bersa warranty gunsmith.

I've had that problem with other pistols. I've found that any stiff controls usually work themselves out after a couple of hundred rounds, a couple of cleanings, and just general use.

If you've already been through all that, may want to have it looked at.

Rv, when I first acquired my BT 380 & 22, the safeties on both pistols were very stiff as well. This I have found is common with many new pistols. Basically I just worked the safeties back & forth about a million times. I know that may be a pain, but it does work as my safeties are very smooth & easy to operate now. Like the others have said, it will loosen up with use over time also.
