That is a nicely colored pistol. What color is your first Spectrum?

It's a hard gun not to like, thinkin' about another one myself. I got a black/grey Spectrum since I carry it mostly at work and it won't show dirt so much but I'd like to have one more colorful for out & about. Nice choice!

That sure is a nice color combination. Looking forward to the report.
Here’s why I like this gun


- you have to like (I do) Kahr-like triggers... in other words... a double action-like trigger which is long but smooth and is the same every time

- you have to like (I do) the second strike capability ... just pull the trigger again and it will strike the primer again

- you have to like (I do) the non-snag rounded everything on this gun. Fits anywhere I want to carry it... holster IWB, front pocket, back pocket, ankle holster, suit coat pocket... no snagging

- you have to like light (I do) I even carry a “mousier” gun sometimes... a 6.6oz keltec P32

- you have to like point and shoot instinctive shooting (I do)

- you have to like 380s (I do... hence my Sig P238 and Taurus UL380 revolver I also carry now and then)


I like variety and choices based upon weather, clothing, destination, etc

For that money I could be tempted...just checked, retail is 200 plus tax here.

From them, with tax and FFL fee added in just shy of 180.00

Well since it looks like the Spectrum is going to be discontinued, I ordered the same one as the OP today, (silver/gray/indigo). Figured I better get one of the nice color combinations before they were all gone.

Nice little gun and should serve you well. I've got a .380 I still like, but never carry. I arm up with either 9mm, .357 magnum, .38 special, or .45ACP. My Kel Tec P11 sort of put my .380 to bed years ago, but I will not sell it. :D Cheap as a Spectrum is, I should pick one up. Nothing else on the market floats my boat.

I do have a .380 class pistol. It's a little bigger and all steel so a little heavier and it shoots 9x18 Makarov. Nice little weapon, but even though it's VERY accurate and reliable and points instinctively for me, I rarely carry it.

yes Sir!
I have a Bersa like that, over the years I have owned like 4 of them.
being talked out of them by family and friends that wanted to buy them.
can't seem to go without one?
they are heavy, they are hard to rack, they are somewhat heavy recoiling (for the caliber) but man do they fit me and shoot for me.
its a best buy in my opinion in a 380, specially for a house/car gun.
never had a problem child with this gun, runs great.
