    Is there anywhere that makes wood grips for the BT380+? I found pearl, ivory, marble, and carbon fiber at http://www.designergrips.com/samples/bersa/plus/ but I would much prefer a set of wooden ones. I may get aset of pearl grips for special occasions ;)

    I just ordered some walnut grips from Bersa. Very nice and I like the extra little bit of thickness (large hands). Only problem was the flat side of the right hand grip caught the end of the loop on the spring of the magazine safety. Easy to fix with a Dremel tool to give the end of the spring a little wiggle room. Works fine now.

    I Know what you are saying about the Wood Grips. I thought about a set, but decided on the Rubber Grips and have not been sorry for the purchase

    Thanks!

    I'm still trying to make some time to do the same, for my BT380+ Nickel, and BT380+ Duo-Tone. I've had the Grips for awhile, just gotta find a free moment or two. Retirement Life can get pretty busy around here! [​IMG]

    Cheers!

    I had rubber grips on my first Bersa 380T, but for the life of me they are all out of stock, everywhere...:(

    This is an old thread, but if somebody is reading this...
    I just received my custom grips for my Bersa Thunder Plus 380.
    They came from Marschal Grips, and are gorgeous, but it took about 4 months to get them.
    They come from Hungary.
    They fit perfectly and I really love them.
    I honestly had given up on ever seeing them, but they did show up.
    Lovely work, and a good price.

    The wood Bersa Plus grips look fantastic!
    Warm, elegant, and sophisticated. Bersa. Bersa Plus.

    1) my email to Marschal did not go thru.
    did you discuss your grips by email, or just order on line?
    2) do you feel the overall grasp is the same overall thickness, thicker,
    or more slender without the front rubber strip?

    I have smaller hands and wondered if Marschal could add finger grooves or make the width a bit thinner to accommodate smaller hands.

    Those grips will turn heads.

    I found dealing with Marschal Grips to be a leap of faith.
    I placed my order online, and then heard nothing for 4 months when my grips showed up.
    They are not good at communication.
    I love the grips, but they are quite thick.
    That's fine for me since I have large hands.
    I don't know if they can add finger grooves.
    I wish there was some other source, but they are the only grip company anywhere that makes grips for the Bersa Thunder Plus

    I have a set for my .380cc that I ordered from them in Zebra wood. They are great looking grips and were thicker than the factory grips but I also have larger hands so they are a good fit for me. Fit was perfect!

    It only took a couple of weeks to get mine, if you look at the website they often have display grips that they have made for shows or cancelled orders, those ship out pretty quick but just not as many choices.

    Saw from the pull-down menu in the Marschal pricing section that Marschal will make Bersa Plus grips with thumb rest and finger grips which may offset some of the thickness for small-handed shooters like me. I wanted the 15-shot capacity and I knew it came with a price - chunky grip - but I digress.
    Your grips are gorgeous. Are they Walnut with red finish??? The Wattle with red finish looks nice, but Walnut looks to have a finer grain from the pictures.

    The Hunt for Slimmer Bersa Thunder Grips

    Being small-handed the original Thunder Plus grips are chunky to me. I've had no success finding thinner grips. Hopefully it is helpful to others to have the aftermarket grips available for the Bersa Thunder Plus summarized in one place. Please add to this if it is incomplete.

    - Rubber wrap-around grip
    - No other Bersa Thunder Plus grip options offered by Bersa in the US
    www.bersa.eagleimportsinc.com/bersa/shop/bersa-parts/thunder-plus/thunder-380-plus-parts
    - Several aftermarket grips for Thunder and Thunder CC are available
    - Bersa Thunder and Bersa Thunder CC grips do not fit Bersa Thunder Plus
