Tried some different ammo and it's extracting better. But it FTF on the 6th or 5th round. What's wrong with the breach face?

What ammo are you using? One which is known to cause extraction/ejection problems for Bersa .380s is Sellior & Bellot. One known to cause feed problems is Winchester White Box.

The American eagle is giving me FTE big time. Slap in some Remington and bang bang.

It could be a mag problem, but some of the Bersa .380s seem to be really picky about ammo. The WWB & S&B get the most complaints, but a few have problems with other brands until well broken in. If yours likes the Remington, continue with it for a while, then check the American Eagle again.

Yes factory mags. I only have the one. I'm going to trade it for a LCP. I've have had nothing but problems with it. I don't trust it with my life so it has to go.

Update! Turns out I had the recoil spring on backwards. It has a tapered end that is hard to notice. I also cleaned the magazine. I only had one FTF yesterday.

I don't know why I didn't mention that. That seems to be a common thing since there is so little difference in the ends of the recoil spring. There can be no mistake with my new .380 Plus! The small end fits so tightly around the barrel it's a little difficult to get off & back on, so not likely someone would get it wrong.
