Springfield Xd 9mm compact vs bersa bp9cc

Looking into getting one or the other. Any owners of either have any suggestions?

Really 2 different guns. I don't know anything about the Bersa BP9CC because it is not out yet. The springfield is proven, and I think it is a great gun made by a great company. Either will be easy to conceal with the nod going to the bersa just because of the thickness. If your looking to get one of these soon I would go with the springfield just because it has been out for a long time, and you shouldn't have any hickups. Bersa does make a great gun though, just don't know anything about the bp8cc.

I'm set to buy another Springfield XDm in 9mm. That's been the best semi to date by far - for me. Your results may vary.

If those are your choices, then no question, go with the XD. My wife shoots a Bersa and likes it fine for what it is. The XD is just a much better gun.

Bersa

I think Bersa is a nice option but to be a 9mm package it is too heavy for CCW. Out there u can find the same quality but less weight. If I will go over 20oz I will select a .40 or .45 subcompact. Compare prices and get the best for your pocket.

At present time still waiting on the ATF to approve the new Bersa bp9cc . Till then can't do a thing . As soon as their a approved they will start going out to the disturber.

The present 9mm is very well thought of and many are waiting for this one

check in here We will likely have the first word on release.

Thunder 9mm Ultra Compact is 23 oz still not a heavy weight many members carry one every day.

The Bersa BP9CC may be listed on Davidson's (has been for ages) but it is not available yet.

Per the importer, Eagle Imports, the BP9CC is still in the hands of the BATF and they have not yet approved them for importing.

So there are no current owners who can give you their opinion yet. To me they look about comparable in size and capacity to a Kahr CW9.


Edit - Michael T beat me to it.

Bersa makes good guns but I've got a XD9sc and it is a suberb weapon. Much lighter than the Bersa. Accurate, reliable, lifetime warranty from a great company, back up 16 round mags. What's not to like.

+1, The Bersa is a good gun but its not even close to a XD. I put the XD in the top tier of CCW weapons like the G27/27 and the M&P 9c/40c. Get the XD and you won't be disappointed.

I just got myself an XD45, love it. My friend has the XD-9 he adores that thing. Goes from sub-com 13+1 to 19+1

+1 for the XD

Have the XD 40sc and absolutely love it. Proven reliability is what you want in a carry gun. Maybe in 6 months or so after the new Bersa has proven reliability, then I would think of it but I am not going to carry a gun that is brand new to the market, too much at stake.

The Bersa has been around for quite some time. In fact they have been producing the 9mm for about 5 years prior to the creation of the XD. Based on your criteria he should choose the Bersa instead of the "new" Xd.

What part of it do you need explained to you?


WHOA WHOA. I see, the OP was referring it to the BP9cc not the Bersa 9 UC. I stand corrected, CHILDISHLY corrected, but corrected none the less.
