Introduced in 2010, the BPCC pistol series was Bersa’s first-ever polymer frame striker-fired handgun. Initially, the BPCC pistols were available in 9mm and .40 caliber, but Bersa phased out the .40 caliber model at the end of 2011. Currently, Bersa offers the BPCC series in a 9mm and .380 model. The .380 version is called the BP380CC.
This model was designed and marketed as an option for concealed carry, self-defense, and home protection.
The BP9CC is Bersa’s 9mm model, and within the 9mm chambering, Bersa offers three versions of the BP9:
From a size perspective, this pistol is 6.35 inches long, 4.8 inches tall, and nearly 1 inch wide. The barrel on the BP9CC is 3.3 inches.
All the BP9CC models have a single stack eight-round magazine with an 8+1 total capacity.
For the most part, the BP9-CC functions like almost any other striker-fired handgun, but it does have a few unique features:
Magazine Disconnect Safety
A magazine disconnect safety means that the pistol cannot fire if the magazine is removed or not properly seated. Most firearms imported into the U.S. feature two models. One model is not equipped with this type of safety and one with a magazine disconnect safety.
The model without the mag disconnect is sold to the U.S. states that do not have any mag disconnection requirements, while the pistol version with the disconnect safety is sold in states with a mag safety disconnect requirement. Bersa doesn’t follow that approach and only offers the BP9CC with a magazine disconnect safety.
Key Operated Safety Release
The BPCC is also equipped with a child safety locking device that will disable the firearm with a key. This is a bit different as you really don’t see this style of child safety locking devices on handguns that are manufactured in the United States anymore.
While the BP9CC isn’t the smallest firearm that Bersa makes, it’s not the largest either. So technically, Bersa classifies this pistol series as a “sub-compact” pistol.
The size of the BP9 CC makes it an option for concealed carry with an IWB holster or a belt holster. We carry several leather IWB holsters designed to fit the BP9CC. These holster models are molded directly from an actual BP9CC, so the fit is excellent.
Another potential holster option for this Bersa pistol are belt holsters (which can also be called outside the waistband holsters). Most belt holsters are designed to be worn on a belt and are built to ride on the shooter’s strong side. The belt holsters picture below will fit any belt up to 1 ¾ wide.
Here are some commonly asked questions that are associated with holsters for the Bersa BP9CC:
Unfortunately, the BP9CC and the Glock G19 have different dimensions, so a BP9CC won’t properly fit into a gun holster made for a G19.
Sorry, but we do not currently offer an ankle holster made to fit the Bersa BP9-CC.
Currently, we only carry leather holsters made to fit the BP9CC.
We do carry leather holsters made to fit the Bersa BP380CC, and they can be seen here.
