It must be just after SHOT show because we have yet ANOTHER new gun hitting the marketplace. This time an updated TPR from Bersa. Let's take a look at the improvements Bersa has made with these pistols.
Bersa's announcement showed their excitement, here is what they had to say in their press release:
“We’re excited to bring this next generation of Bersa TPRs to American consumers,” said Michael Sodini, President of Eagle Imports, Inc. (Bersa's American distributor) “Once available only to military and law enforcement personnel, it’s always offered rugged durability and impressive accuracy. This new evolution makes the TPR officially one of my favorites for self-defense and sport.”
Available in standard 4.25″ barrel and compact 3.25″ barrel configurations, the redesigned TPR9 semi-automatic pistols incorporate a smoother, lighter trigger plus a host of ergonomic improvements for accurate control during rapid fire, including:
- A thinner grip, which allows for better reach to the new-and-improved trigger during single and double action.
- Serrations in the front part of the frame for firm thumb support and to reduce the muzzle flip.
- Ambidextrous safety, slide and magazine releases.
- Compact, lightweight and snag-free slide profile – featuring serrations in the front part of the slide for easy racking.
Other notable features include:
- A loaded chamber indicator protrudes from the upper face of the slide, to show the condition of the pistol without breaking the grip.
- Interchangeable SIG Sauer-type sights.
- An improved Browning-Petter locking system.
- Lightweight aluminum alloy frames.
- Picatinny accessory rails.
- Lifetime service contract for original owners.
