Bersa Thunder 380 Plus Features

The Bersa Thunder 380 Plus is an incredible pocket-carry pistol.  Chambered in .380 Auto, this gun surpasses other .380 sub-compacts thanks to its 15 round double-stack magazine.  It continues to provide defensive power with its 3.4 inch barrel, giving the .380 more muzzle velocity and higher energy.  The trigger has a long and heavy pull when fired from double-action while the single-action provides a decent pull for the price.

Bersa Thunder 380 Plus Capacity

The Bersa Thunder 380 Plus is a sub-compact .380 that uses double-stack magazines giving the user capacities of 10 and 15 rounds.

Bersa Thunder 380 Plus Ergonomics

Ergonomics
The Bersa Thunder 380 Plus is one of those sub-compact pistols that has the ergonomics of a full-sized gun.  Its wide and relatively tall grip gives the user plenty of surface area for a proper grip on the gun, while its controls are placed in the expected spots.  Its hammer and grip tang may cause some discomfort while carrying.  Its windage-adjustable sights give this sub-compact pistol a real edge over its competition by allowing the user to make more accurate shots.

Bersa Thunder 380 Plus Fit & Finish

The Bersa Thunder 380 Plus is available with a stainless-steel or black colored slide, and its frames are available in plenty of different colors.  This pistol’s build quality often exceeds the expectations that are implied by the pistol’s low cost, especially in its tight tolerances between the frame and slide.
Fit and Finish

Bersa Thunder 380 Plus Concealability

Concealability
The Bersa Thunder 380 is based off of the incredibly popular Walther PPK, and the 380 Plus builds off of the inherent concealability with a 15 round magazine.  Due to its short length and height, concealment is only hindered by its added width which can cause the pistol to print through tighter clothing.  Proper holster placement and choice in attire can easily make this pistol unnoticeable.
