I guess one more queston...how far apart were the serial numbers? Maybe bad batch? Wish I knew the answers. I told my fiance what you wrote and we'll keep a close eye. Maybe we just (and happily so) got some really good ones... our serial numbers are only 4 apart since they came from the same dealer. Since you're not shooting them, send em back and find out. Be a great time to check out the lifetime gaurantee. Her response.... "well. lets go shoot some more and see what happens". Hopefully they'll stay the good ones, but really... over 750 rounds flawless so far. and we both like the feel and looks. Normally, if they put out one bad in 1000.. that's the one I get. Then too, maybe the Bersa gods just.... like us?
