Couldn't make out the stamping too well. The phone app only shows the photos so big.

Now you have done it! You let the secret out. Great gun and so is the Bersa HC 9mm. Both are pretty flawless in reliability. Now please delete this post before they raise the price.

That's a nice looking piece. I'm a big fan of the stainless steel/two tone look. And it certainly shoots well based on the groupings. What's the retail on that?

Default Firestorm pistol cost (follow up)

I bought this gun about 10 years ago. I think I paid in the $350 range.
It is double stack, 13 rounds. Rail go's as far as trigger guard. One thing that is nice is the cock safety, you set the safety and you can pull the trigger to uncock the gun. It is about the same size of a Glock 26. BUT! it is heavier than the Glock.

BTW, I want to add, this gun comes with a lock key. You can see the keyhole just above the trigger housing on the left side. You lock it, and the gun cannot be fired. The trigger just swings back and forth with no action.

nice groups! yes i have heard of the Firestorm pistols and heve heard good things about them. somehow they were affiliated with Bersa and were discontinued a few years ago. looks good to me.

Firestorm contracted with Bersa to put their name on the pistol. Except for some cosmetic differences such as the rounded trigger guard instead of the combat type guard, they are the same pistol as the Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact pre "Pro" pistols. Shortly after coming out with the "Pro" series, they stopped making the Firestorms. I'm told that there were a few Pro Firestorms, but I haven't seen any.

My first Bersa was a Firestorm Mini .40S&W & has been flawless. I wasn't really familiar with the Bersa brand at the time or I would have also bought the Mini 9mm that he had. I prefer the pre Pro models without the rail.
