Bersa shoots low

My Bersa 380 is a sweet little gun but it shoots low with any kind of ammo. Do they make a higher rear sight. Help

I don't know about the rear sight, sorry. But I shot a buddies bersa this weekend and had the very same problem. I lined the sights in sort of a triangle and was shooting about 60' pretty darned accurate. I lined the dots kinda like this- .'. Hard to type it out but it works.

I've had my Bersa Thunder .380 for a good while now. I was finally able to get out and shoot it yesterday for the very first time. Below is one of my better results - 2 mags (7 CCI Blazer 95gr FMJ.; 7 Cor-Bon 90gr JHP's)

Now, I'm no pistoleer by any means - so I was pretty pleased with the accuracy of this little pistol. I was only shooting at 8 yds, but you can see that they were a little low as well. I was placing the front sight just under or barely covering the "bullseye." It may very well have been my own doing (shooting low) due to anticipation of recoil. You might want to have someone else try your pistol, or even a couple of people. If it consistantly shoots low by multiple shooters then you might be able to rule out user error.

One complaint: The beaver tail cuts into my hand. I'm going to take a file to the sharp edges to round them off a bit. Other than that - it fed both FMJ and JHP w/out a hitch. Seems like a good $200 spent so far.
