With the Bersa Thunder 22, Argentine firm Bersa delivers a very compact, yet very capable 10+1 capacity .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol. This double-action/single-action pistol is 6.6” long, 4.7” tall, 1.3” wide and wraps around a 3.5” barrel. The total weight is just 18.9 ounces, or barely over a pound. The standard color is black, but there are several others we’ll cover further down.

The steel slide includes an integral front blade sight, which helps keep this gun so affordable. Dovetailed into the back is a notched-bar sight. Also back there, the gun has tightly packed diagonal serrations and a standard hammer. There is a decocker mounted on the back of the slide that reveals an angry red dot when the gun is ready to fire. This slide then mates to an alloy frame.

The frame evokes a Beretta influence. That’s hardly a coincidence. Bersa’s roots are in maintaining/evolving Berettas which it started doing in 1958 when founded by a trio of Italian immigrants to Argentina. Their names? Benso Bonadimani, Ercole Montini and Savino Caselli. They combined the first two letters of their names to get Bersa. They started in metro-Buenos Aires and have been there ever since. But back to the gun.

The trigger guard is an upturned oval that points up toward the muzzle even as the back forms a shallow undercut behind the trigger. The front of the guard has a concave serrated surface. And the trigger itself is more a J than a crescent.

The grip is flanked by polymer grips. They are triangular checkered and fastened with just one flat head screw. The usual logo one finds on grips is missing. Instead a nice BERSA cartouche claims the real estate between the grip and slide. Above it is a short beavertail.

The grip has a rounded butt mainspring housing. The 10-round magazine has a bottom finger rest thus elongating the room one gets on the grip.

The Thunder 22 has various finishes beyond the standard matte black. These include Cerakote Bright Nickel and Duotone, meaning matte black slide, trigger and minor parts on a satin nickel colored frame.

For safety, the Thunder 22 has an internal locking system, automatic firing pin safety, magazine safety, manual safety and the decocker lever. The intriguing Bersa Thunder 22 is Made in Argentina.
