    Introduction and a 9mm Pro HC question

    Hi all!
    Name's Tony and I'm the proud owner of a new (to me) Bersa Thunder Pro 9mm HC. I have yet to take the gun to the range; that will be fixed this weekend. Dry firing with snap caps indicates a pretty heavy DA pull but SA seems to be smooth and easy. Looking forward to taking this thing for a twirl!

    Now for the question:
    I've done some research here and determined that I have a fixed sight model. It appears that the prior owner had attempted to fashion night sights with glow paint. The front sight looks pretty good, but the rear sight looks like it was dug out with a dull butter knife and finished with a belt sander.

    Any suggestions on a repair, or am I relegated to sending the slide home for a make over? Alternately, can one purchase a new slide with the adjustable sights? If it's cheaper I might go that route.

    Thanks for any input!!
    Tony

    There is a guy in Livingston, Texas that refurbishes slides to your desire and replaces altered and damaged sights.

    Fuslier Gunsmithing and Plating
    142 Estate Road, Livingston, TX 77351-7695
    (936) 967-4919 ‎

    He has an Internet Site:

    http://www.gunsmith.fuselier.com/

    He plated the slide of my Bersa Thunder .380 in dull nickel and his work is excellent and the time involved is more excellent, complete turn around in less than 10 days and very reasonable in pricing.

    Opted for new slide instead...

    Well I decided to go a different route. I purchased the new style slide. Getting Truglo sights installed. Sig style #6 front sight #8 rear sight as per discussions in other threads. We'll see how it all shakes out.

    Well, here are few pics with the New slide and Tru-Glo sights. I went ahead and polished up the Nickel slide - as well as the feed ramp. The pictures really do not do it justice. Needless to say I'm pretty pleased with the outcome!!
