I had just finished cleaning the pistol and try as I might I could not get the sidearm reassembled . I I could not see any obvious damage.I can attach pics later on today.Hi, welcome to the forum! Sorry it had to be like this though.
Can you disassemble it again? What exactly is happening to keep it from being reassembled? You shouldn't have to send it in for repairs, but we need more info. Pics would be good too.
Yes. I have. Put the empty mag back in the gun before you attempt assembly.I recently purchased a new Bersa thunder 380 pistol. Fired 50 rounds of ball ammo thru it (ammo shortage), cleaned it twice and now cannot get it reassembled. To send it in for repairs so soon is nuts. Anybody had a similar problem ?
Navigator30 knew about the "mag in trick" because he was very embarrassed by a gunsmith who corrected the "reassembly problem" instantly at no charge right in front of him.Yes I was referring to the "mag-in trick". Must have confused my attributions. Sometimes you learn something, and sometimes you don't. I was hoping the original poster would share with us what the problem was with his Bersa Thunder.
several users of the .380 like mine and nobody can reassemble my pistol. H ave discovered many gouges in the metal , one ton the right side of the chamber entrance, a large gouge on the bolt face opposite the extractor. Nobody has ever seenSometimes a visual is the best learning experience. Thanks.
Do you have any pics of these gouges? It would be interesting to see.several users of the .380 like mine and nobody can reassemble my pistol.

Nobody has ever seen any of these faults on their pistol.
