Bersa 83 disassembly guide/manual?

I have a nice Model 83 that I recently pulled out of storage and began shooting again after 15 years (the gun had been cleaned regularly during this time). The gun shoots excellent but I would very much like to give it a full tear-down and cleaning (with a little polish/sanding thrown in). I am not looking to field-strip the gun, I would like to take it down to the bare frame and disassemble the slide as well.

I have tried on several occasions to find a good guide or manual online but have had no luck. If anyone has any knowledge or advice they can provide I would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks

You might try here. http://www.bersachat.com/forums/forum.php
If they don't have it, they might be able to point you in the right direction.
Good Luck

Ah yes, thank you. I was trying to remember the name of that site. I even have a profile there and had a question answered a month or so ago, but I never bookmarked the site and it fell out of my rotation.

Heres a parts diagram for the 83. Youll have to sign up to see it.

thanks danez71. I guess with the parts list I can figure out the correct order of disassembly on my own, even if I dont find a true step by step guide.
