As you know, my preference is more towards the all metal guns with lots of working parts, full size drip out magazines and blowback action. The problem with these types of realistic airguns, is that they can be expensive and sometimes a bit temperamental with all the working parts designed more for realism and less for simplicity. Generally speaking the more realistic the gun the more of a sacrifice is made to give up things like power, CO2 efficiency and even accuracy. The ASG Bersa Thunder 9 Pro is made to look like the real steal version but it does not try to replicate it mechanically and so as a functional BB pistol it will work very well, yet give you the look and feel a real 9mm Bersa Thunder 9 Pro.
After a lot of effort, I finally got it! Surprising how difficult it is to find one of these things, but after much perusing of on-line gun classifieds, I finally snagged this one from GunsAmerica. As I review this gun, I'm also going to make some comparisons to the 9mm that used to be my main auto, the Ruger P89.
Built to perform under adverse condition, originally for military and law enforcement personnel, the Bersa Thunder Pro provides decisive stopping power during circumstances requiring aid from a well concealed handgun. It is an excellent choice for anyone preferring a high capacity handgun that offers the rugged durability, shooting accuracy and mechanical reliability of Bersa's signature 380 line while features enhanced ergonomics, lighter weight and safer operation in hands of citizens. The handgun is available in 17 or 13 round magazine, making it one of the highest capacity handguns available in the market. You can depend on this gun for service, self-defense or sport.
