    Grip screw

    Does anyone in the Cleveland area know where I could get a grip screw for my Thunder 380? the Bersa web site says that they are out of stock and the only one that I can find is on ebay for three times the price.

    Might call some of the warranty centers to see if they have some spares.

        Sorry to hear the wayward grip screw... Trouble with these is they are an odd ball metric screw too 3 mm x .60 pitch I think... Sorry my memory does not firmly recall as it's been a while since I fiddled around with installing some hex head capscrews on one of mine a while back.

          I think it is an M4X0.70. After installing new grip screws, always check to see if the hammer will stay back in the full-cock position. If not, loosen both screws about a half turn and re-check. If the SA is again working, then then one or both screws are too long and impinging on the side of the SA sear. Shorten the screw a little at a time (there's only about 3 threads in the frame and you don't want to shorten the screw any more than needed) & recheck. As a final check, I color the end of the screw w/ a Sharpie, install, remove and check that there are no contact points on the end of the screw (shiny spots), then swap the screws from one side to the other and check again. That should guarantee they won't cause trouble if you inadvertently swap them during cleaning, etc.

              Wolfgang's secret tip about checking grip fastener security has earned the thread a sticky. There's always some member who has a screw loose around here.
