Things I liked:I bought this for draw, presentation, and double tap drills, so this review should be taken in that context. Things I liked: 1) The weight, balance, and triple dot sight system almost perfectly mimic a modern polymer handgun such as a M&Pc or SR9c. This made it perfect for draw and presentation drills. 2) The trigger is quite good for an airsoft. The overall travel is slightly long, and the initial stage does have a tad of creep. Trigger weight was around 4 lbs. Not as crisp a break as a real Ruger or M&P, but pretty darn close for an airsoft. 3) The trigger reset is short and distinct, which allows for a realistic double tap drill. 4) Fairly accurate at 25 ft. Mine pulls about 2 inches high and to the left at that distance with a 1-2'' group. Haven't tried adjusting hop-up yet. 5) I was getting about 100 rounds with one canister of CO2.
Things I would have changed:The blowback is quite weak (~1/3 the recoil of a .22). This could have been strengthened by making the slide heavier, or the slide travel longer. That being said, the blowback was sufficient to require a requisition of the sight picture after a shot.
What others should know:I also looked into the Walther P99 blowback and the SIG Sauer P226 X-FIVE blowback before settling on the Bersa. The Walther's reviews gave it a long, very heavy trigger pull, which seriously detracts from realism for training. The SIG had great reviews, but is quite a bit heavier and has a different sight picture than a modern polymer, so didn't serve the training purposes either. Ultimately, this little pistol did not disappoint for my intended purposes. The blowback could be stronger, but the rest of the package is quite solid.
