I was a Taurus owner myself, until I found out that the 24/7 couldn't chamber factory loads because their overall length was too long. After that I just got kinda soured on the line. How do you screw up factory specs that badly?I am not so sure I want to play anymore if your not going to continue to bash some of my hand guns
Concerning your Bersa could you possibly call the company to find out what the difference between the firing pin block and non block models?
What about removing the finish on the slide and just polishing it yourself. Would be a bit of elbow greased used but I suspect you would do a good job and it would look mighty spiffy.
The thing about the Bersa is that even though it has a steel slide, it doesn't specify what type of steel. Stripping and polishing the finish might work, but then it would leave the steel unprotected and vulnerable to rust accumulation. And the more polished you make it, the more prone to rusting it is.
