Anyone know why the Mini .40 is not being imported any more?

Don't know exactly who made the decision, or why, but the Firestorm Mini 9mm, 40S&W & .45AP pistols are the same pistol as the Bersa Thunders, except for some cosmetic differences. Guess they just didn't see the need for importing both. There was some speculation that the Firestorm didn't have as good a rep as the Thunders, but I don't know if that had anything to do with it. Myself, I kind of preferred the Firestorm look & have the Mini 40, but like my Thunder Pro 9s & 45 also.

Anyone know why the Mini .40 is not being imported any more?I am not sure why the larger caliber FS pistols are no longer imported? Bersa now imports a UC40, which was not available until fairly recently.

Thanks for the replies.
I had a mini .40 and .45 but upgraded:confused:
Really like the rounded trigger guard.
Oh well, I now have a new qwest.
Maybe I'll give the Bersa a try.

Good luck in your search, degg357. There are still a few of the Firestorm Minis out there if you keep your eyes open.
