My Bersa is FTF and FTE. I've cleaned everything ! It has about 300 down the pipe. Springs are on right. If any one has a Bersa and any ideas before it goes back I would appreciate it.

Should the breechface have a ridges like that near the firing pin?

Besides the suspected mag problem, those small ridges could be hanging up the cartridges on feeding.

I have no idea but I'm guessing no? Poor machining?

How often does it FTF and FTE? It could be the mag that is a common problem, the extractor may be worn out and not catching correctly if it was poorly made.

I would check the feed lips on the mag . My guess is the same mag or extractor. A new extractor should not be more than $20

This certainly looks like a problem area for hang ups, I think I'd find a good gunsmith so you have a solid opinion for returning the firearm. A friend of mine had a Bersa Thunder 40 and it had a bit of rough machine work showing inside the slide but nothing that interfered with flawless functioning but on a breach face from what your pics are showing it doesn't look right.

I looked at it wrong the breach face should not look like that.
