I purchased one mine form a local pawn shop for $300. Did I get a good deal?
Firestorm .38 revolver
I purchased a used one for $205.00 at Gunbroker.com
Here's a link to used prices...
As much as I am proud to admit that I am well-versed when it comes to Bersa handguns, I am ashamed to admit that I am clueless when it comes to revolvers. Are they good? Do they carry the same reputation as Bersa's semi-auto handguns?
I am also curious!
I don't think the revolver is made by Bersa. It's made by Amsor in the Phillipines and is called a Firestorm. Holds six rounds. I changed my handle grips to Pachmayr. Made a world of difference in how it feels in your hand. Put 50 rounds of P rated ammo thru it the other day. Shoots fine but did get a slight warm. I would not suggest this ammo all the time. My Bersa Firestorm nine on the other hand shoots like you never want to stop and is a tad lighter in weight. The range I went to wouldn't allow me to shoot steel casing ammo so I used two (10) rd mags of remington a box of (50) reloads.
Sorry, I bought a Bersa Fire Storm .38 hidden hammer revolver. I paid $189.00 new from a gun store. I am a livelong S & W big fan. I thought this little pistol would be a good carry pistol as it fits right in your pocket holster and has a 6 round capacity. Surprisingly I found this to be a really decent little pistol. It holds up well at the range firing .38 spl rounds. However, to my surprise, I found out this little tank can fire .38 +P ammo all day long. I felt like I stole this little jewel. They are going for $200.00 & up at most gun stores. Before the rest of the public knows this, I say get out there and buy a couple of them. Great little accurate pistol for a 2 in barrel.
These revolvers were not made by Bersa, and should not be associated with Bersa, although they are nice little revolvers. They were made for Eagle Imports (Importer of Bersa and MetroArms 1911s) to be marketed under Eagle's Firestorm brand by Armscor in Manilla. We only sold them for about 18 months and there are about 2000 of them out there. They carry a lifetime warranty and are serviced by Armscor in Nevada at this point. Great revolvers, especially for the price we were selling them at!!
$189 delivered BUDS GUNS last year I've sold used ones in my shop for $199..............
I just ordered a Firestorm from gunbuyer.com for $263.77 with no tax and free shipping, to my LGS. This link shows them out of stock but after I clicked on the NOTIFY ME button, they contacted me within days.
