    The rear sight on my Bersa Thunder .380 disappeared, and I am having a hard time finding a replacement. I'm sure it is easily available, but I just don't know where to look. I have tried Brownells with no luck. Do any of you guys know of a good website that sells rear sights for Bersa 380's?

    Thanks for your help!

    www.e-gunparts.com. FYI, the Bersa Thunder is a copy of the Walther ppk so the sights are interchangeable;)

    Thank you guys. I really appreciate the help. FYI, it is the rear sight blade. As soon as I send this I am going to buy one. Thanks again!

    So any PPK aftermarket sights will work on a Bersa? What if it's an older model 85?

    Mine disappeared also. When I got the new one Loctite went on the screw. Don't forget to order the adjusting screw and spring.

    Interesting. This looks to be a design flaw, as checking Numrich for this part shows plentiful parts for this gun, but all rear sight related parts are sold out. Apparently this is a common problem!

    I don't know what it is raw. Mine gets carried about 1000 times more than it gets fired, less than two boxes of ammo to date and I've had it about 5 years. I suppose they just work loose. Since the Loctite mine hasn't moved.
