Though best known for its Thunder semi-automatic pistols, Bersa has occasionally branched out into the concealed carry market—and our latest Gun of the Week may be the company's best example yet.

Crafted of what the company calls High Impact polymer, the BP9CC's frame has a fairly unique and modern appearance. Molded into the dustcover is a 1 1/2-inch section of Picatinny rail. Behind that, and just above the front of the trigger guard, an arrowhead-shaped portion of the frame has molded-in stippling in a fine, mosaic-like pattern. All told, the BP9CC seems at home among other polymer-frame, compact semi-automatics.

With its care and craftsmanship in fit and finish, this Argentine offering could become a real competitor in the concealed-carry market. Get the full scoop from American Rifleman's Associate Editor Joe Kurtenbach in the video below.
