I have one in the matte blue. I've only shot a couple hundred rounds through it so far, but it's never bobbled yet. It's very comfortable to shoot, even with ball. When you consider it's size it's a marvel as most previous subcompact 45s I've owned/shot were a bit brutal in the recoil department. The sub-compact glock holsters fit it quite well and are cheap if you shop used(bought 2 for [email protected] at the gunshow where I bought the pistol). Not target grade accurate but it does quite well and so far has fed everything I've tried. The hammer drop safety locks the slide. I'm impressed considering it was $345 out the door. My only bitch is the cost of extra magazines.Never heard of a Bersa 1911 clone, but they do offer the Thunder .45, and it looks nice to me. Never seen one in person though.
