I purchased a bersa th380 cc probably back in November. Went to break it in and 100 rounds through, had a problem with the safety not disengaging and the trigger not functioning while off of safety. So I took it to the dealer I got it from and they sent it to a bersa service center. 6 LONG weeks later, I got it back . I put 50 rounds through it, no problem, I went to put another 50 through and now, my slide catch and notch where the catch "catches" Is worn down and the slide won't stay locked back. I never us the catch as a slide release so it's not from misuse. This is my carry gun and I don't really want to be unarmed for another 6 weeks. An. Do i just need to send it off, wait, and hope nothing else goes wrong?
you may want to get ahold of Bersa and let them know of your problem and past problem. They may just send you a new slide instead of having to send in. i know they have done this for others on other parts. filing down the part may void warranty so i would only do this as last resort. can you post pic of the notch? on another note...good blind-typing
I am not so afraid of the warranty issue. It's not like this is a thousand dollar gun. I just want it to work. The wear that it is already showing at that spot is disturbing. I for one don't think that the design there is that great. I'll still go the file route.
yes dave. its worth a shot to call eagle importers. let them know you dont want to send it in "again". there was a guy there, i want to say his name was Raphel who may be able to help. Like i said i know for some parts they would just send them out with no charge as long as your gun was registerd with them to you. Slide may be more than they want to send or they may need to see it to replace it. Filing it may work for awhile but if its a bad batch of metal they used i would assume it would just happen again until you have refiled it to the point it cant be fixed again and then you have thrown out the warranty.
