    So... is the Bersa Thunder 9 compact Pro & the Taurus 111 Pro series the same gun?

    No, they're completely different guns. The Mini 9 Firestorm is almost the same with a couple of small differences (Bersa changed the name and added a rail, changed the triggerguard shape, etc.
    They're really good little guns and the 9mm is the best of the bunch-I carry a Mini 9 in a Galco Professional 100 IWB holster almost every day.

    I have not had any experience with a Bersa but I love the shape of the guns and the price tells me that it's made with quality materials. My experience with Taurus, more than one, has all been negative so I wouldn't buy one or even compare it with a Bersa.

    Not even close....


    How could you come to that conclusion at all?

    The Taurus is Striker Fired.


    The Bersa is a DA/SA with an external Hammer....


    Internals are not the same at all.
    Disassembly is completely different.



    Oh, and the fact that the Bersa is a decent gun, whereas Taurus makes junk.
