    primer nicks

    I've test fired my new Bersa .40 UC with 50 rounds of Armscor FMJs and I noticed something odd. Aside from just the usual firing pin "punch" to the primers, I observed nicks just beside every firing pin punch to the primers. As what I had observed, it was also caused by the firing pin. Does anybody can help me with this issue? Fortunately, the piece is reliable and accurate. No FTFs and FTEs.

    Can you post a pic of the spent case that shows this?

      If you're talking about the teardrop shaped mark the firing pin makes on the primer, that's normal for all Bersa Ultra Compacts and Hi Caps. All of mine do it, too. It's nothing to be concerned about.

                Fly, those primers look exactly like mine, every one of them.

                  Hey FLY, my .40 cal. shell marks are much sharper than of your .45 shell marks. Many thanks to you guys.Not worried anymore. I love my Bersa .40 ! Can depend my life on it here in the Philippines.

                    Funny, I was "logged out" trying to reply to your comment, Koji

                    Glad to have you aboard!

                    I and so would other members like to see those striker marks on your Bersa 40 S&W.

                    Do you have the 40 Ultra Compact or 45 High Capacity?

                    Thanks for your comments, always great to hear other comments outside the USA

                        Other guns do this too. My Kahr CW40 did it. Well, it probably still does it but it's no longer mine.

                          So the photo I posted represents a few handguns with the striker "mark" on a Bersa? With every CSI State Dept. the marks could be helpful for a BG that uses a Bersa/FireStorm handgun.

                            45 High Capacity. Fly, what the heck are you jabbering about?
