The locked breech Bersas (9, .40 and .45 Ultra Carry) have ambidextrous slide catch and safety, and a reversible magazine release.

(I don't think that's true of their .380s, but I'm not familiar with them.)

SW99, correction....

Thanks for the Walther 99 pistol update.
I meant the older SW99 format which was discontinued due to Walther ending its business plan with Smith and Wesson.
I'm not thrilled with the P99s trigger system but it does have many LE supporters around the world. James Bond 007 even used on in a action film.

You may be the first person to ever make that statement. The DA/SA Anti-Stress trigger of the original P99 and P99AS has one of the best trigger feels of any DA/SA pistols ever made. The single-action pull in particular rivals that of some 1911s I've fired.
