I am curious about whether Bersa makes any pistols in .32ACP? I ask mainly because I have several pistols in this caliber and it is one of my preferred for pocket pistols, so I do reload for it and have more of it than anything but 9mm laying around, making it the most logical choice for me as a new pistol.

It is a round I reload for already and do not own a .380, so more or less just trying to see if I can stick with something I already keep available.

That makes sense.

Apparently there is a .32 ACP but it is not a US market pistol. Your only chance is if someone imported one or a small batch on their own.

Last year or the year before, Bersa did make a run of Thunder32. They are not currently in production, but there are still some on the market.

I agree that a .32 would be nice. I did read on another forum where they discontinued production because of low sales.

I was on Bersa Chat today to learn about my Thunder 32 ACP series 95 pistol that I just picked up a few days ago--used, of course. Elaine (the woman on the chat line) told me that Bersa stopped making the 32 ACP version in 2012. Furthermore she said that all series 95s were 380 ACP. Then I told her that the words 'Series 95' appeared on the slide so she looked up my serial number. Sure enough she confirmed it was a 32 ACP--the first such she had encountered in a series 95. Now I'm in the process of finding some magazines for it. It came with one 8-round mag. The only ones available today for the 32 ACP are 10-rounders. I ordered a few from Cheaper Than Dirt. Not saying the price is best but their returns policy is very good. There is a possibility I will buy the Thunder 380 CC magazine since it holds 8 rounds and I see where people will use the 380 magazine with 32 ACP ammo and they work. Just to substantiate this I loaded some 32 ACP ammo into a Sig Sauer P 238 magazine and it worked--no I didn't fire the ammo through the Sig. I was just curious if the lips would hold the rounds. Seems to work okay. So if the 10-round 32 ACP magazines won't work I guess I'll try the Thunder 380 CC magazine.

I gave up trying to find a .32 Bersa and bought a Beretta Tomcat instead. I am glad I did.

Pantheon, what bullet and load do you use in your .32acp reloads?

Bersa 732M 32 acp

I just read that Bersa is reintroducing the 32 acp Thunder. I hope it is true since there really isn't any reasonably priced 32s out there and the Bersa would be a welcome addition. I have been trying to buy a Bersa 32 so this is a welcome read.
If any of you out there know more about this, Please share.
thx...

Bersa 32 acp

If Bersa reintroduces the 32 acp, I am sure that they would sell VERY well.
There isn't many 32s out there and the BERSA would be welcomed by many with opened arms.

Where did you pick up that info. I don't really need another gun, but finding and buying a BT32 would fall under the "for S & G" category.
