PostSubject: yeet yeet new gun and questions   Thu Feb 10, 2011 10:22 pm

Looks like I will have a brand new Bersa Thunder UC 40 this weekend! Duotone model.
I did have a question for you UC guys, I've not shot one but handled them...this will be a much shorter barrel (almost an inch) so I'm wondering how bad the recoil will be compared to my polymer SD? The bersa ways a few ounces more, but I can get quick follow up shots and double taps with the SD, I'm hoping that will be the case with the Bersa. Everyone I've seen do videos on etc, is 9 or 45. Not much love for the .40 crowd

I've not shot the Bersa .40 but others who have describe the recoil as snappy whereas the .45 is more of a push.
Since the "snap" is likely a product of the higher pressure in the .40, and with the Bersa being heavier than your SD, I'm guessing you'll not feel much difference.

That's exactly how I describe .40 vs .45. I'll own a .45 one day, but it will definatley be a 1911. I'm interested in seeing where the BP line goes with things

Although I owned a Thunder .45 for a while, I didn't like it. Nothing against the gun itself, but I prefer hi-cap pistols.
REcently solved that problem when I discovered the Taurus 845: 12+1 capacity in a very nice package.

The UC45 is too wide for my skinny hands. Yeah my SD that I'll be selling is 14+1.

I've got a Thunder 45 UC Pro. Recoil is quite tame with it in my opinion, perhaps due to those fat grips that Calvin doesn't like. I don't find the width of the grips to be a big issue, but it's the front-to-back thickness of them that bugs me - distance from the trigger to the backstrap.

It is a really accurate gun, and has been completely reliable for me so far through about 250 rounds.

The only problem I have is that the white dot fell out of the front sight blade. I painted it back in, but then the paint came out the next time I took it to the range! Switched to a light-gray silhouette for the rest of the day so I could see the sight picture.

That and it's the matte finish version, and mine has a truly poorly finished slide. I've been toying with the idea of sending the slide off to get it Cerakoted and seeing if the gunsmith (www.CustomizedCreationz.com) would agree to install some Meprolight tritium sights if I sent them along with the slide.

So not an answer to your question, but I think the Pro UC line is a heavy enough gun that you won't have too much issue with recoil in the 40 either.

yeah I've seen some of the work they've done and it's some sharp looking stuff. i really am set on buying this gun tomorrow morning but i am somewhat tempted by a Sig p250 lol

Let us know what you end up with. I don't personally have any experience with Sigs but I do know they are kind of expensive. I'm sure they're worth it but I've just never owned or shot one.

I have had my Bersa Thunder Pro UC .40 for a couple months now and carry it every day. I like the feel of the pistol and find the recoil much more controllable than other pistols I have carried (Skyy 9mm, FEG 9mm Makarov, Ruger LCP). As you can see it is a larger caliber than others I have used and I think it is easier to shoot.
The only thing I don't like is that the hammer bites the web between my thumb and forefinger. It doesn't really hurt that much, I just usually look down after several round and discover I am bleeding again.

Thanks for the reply Dale. I'll be heading to the range Monday, so I'll find out. I usually carry 180gr but due to the shorter barrel... I picked up some 165gr today to compensate somewhat for the slower velocities with the shorter barrel. Be sure to introduce yourself to the crowd in the welcome section, and welcome to the club!
