Anyone ever see anything like this before? I was at the range this morning, and after i emptied a mag I looked down and saw that my safety switch was broken in half!

I have never, ever dropped it, and I keep it in a padded soft case. I have about 700 rounds through the gun.

I was about 300 rounds in, shooting Freedom Munitions, Tula, and Blazer Brass.

That's new to me. Must have been a fault in the metal. I would see if someone would send me a new decocker.

I have a Gander Mountain near me, so I am going to go and drop it off there for service.

Knowing them, I will get it back in about 6 months:(

Gander Mountain is an authorized repair site for Bersa Firearms. Bersa itself has no repair facilities in the US as all are imported by Eagle. All repairs are contracted,

Why wouldn't you send it Bersa for repair instead of GANDER????

i had this happen on a 383DA...was at the range and not sure what happened but i went to flip the decocker, because it must of moved as i was firing, and it ripped my thumb up...as i saw blood running down my hand then i looked at my gun and saw busted decocker. I was able to mod a new decocker to work on my old gun.

I hope it was not too serious of an injury, Spyder.

I feel fortunate that it was just the decocker, no injury to speak of.

Mine did the exact same thing, Exactly! I have been to the parts site, I cant remember now the name but that part has been on back order for a while now. Id rather fix it myself than send it in and wait who knows how long.

Thanks for the info, rocker...

Does anyone have a step by step on the install? I am thinking that I can figure it out, but when all else fails-cheat :D

Thanks, man!

I am going to tackle this one myself. Looks pretty straight forward, and should be able to refrain from teaching my daughters any new colorful language :)

Update:

I emailed Bersa Customer Service to see if they would send me a safety. Success! I should have it in a week or so.

I am so happy that they are willing to send me the part and do it myself instead of sending it out. Thought this tidbit might be helpful for those who want to fix their own and not wait.
