hello everyone.

I bought a brand new bersa thunder duotone 380 this weekend and i am having an issue with it. it almost always fails to feed on the 2nd to last round in the magazine. i put 200 rounds through it thinking it might be a break in issue but it is still occurring but only on the 2nd to last round. ammo type doesn't seem to matter. thoughts?

Wecome to the forum!

If you have tried assorted ammo and eliminated that, You might try another mag to see if he same thing happens. I have had several of the .380s over the years. All were used. Never had a feed issue with any of them. I would doubt that there is a feed ramp problem if it feeds all the other rounds.

I would suggest tinkering with the feed lips on the magazine, but not on a new gun. It could affect your warranty.

thanks for the response. I will probably just call bersa and see what they say but just wanted some input from the resident experts.

You say you purchased it brand new. Did you clean the gun and mags before shooting? I mean clean it WELL.

you should take the mag apart and check it for burrs with a q-tip...if it snags then you have a burr that may be affecting the spring or feeder platform of mag. clean very well as suggested already and lubricate. make sure sure spring is properly seated when assembling.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I did clean the firearm well before shooting but I did not clean the magazine. I will give that a good cleaning and try again.

When cleaning the Mag, carefully knock off any sharp edges and clean the inside. :D

I am having the same problem, 2nd to last round usually. Mag seemed fine, but if a $30 mag is that touchy, that stinks. Would the original mag be a warranty item?
