    I ordered this at the same time as the Bersa 22, but the Bersa arrived a couple months before. This FireStorm feels just as well made. Solid and good tolerances. The grip is excellent. Will clean it in a few and take it to the range later..

    I thought they were Argentinian.. Not sure if Bersa makes both firearms, but the FireStorm mags are identical to the ones in my Bersa Thunder 22. There are some slight grip differences. The Firestorm is more rubbery feeling (and actually feels a little "grippier")..

    JonM: the finger grooves are part of the frame..

    Bersas and Firestorms are both made in Argentina by Bersa. There are two different American importers I understand.
