No, I am not a BOT
Yes, I am human and I did purchase this weapon for myself about a year ago. While I did experience some problems with accuracy at first I attribute those issues to the break in period for a new and unfamiliar weapon. After several times at the range I can fairly consistently put a round in a pie plate at 25 feet and definitely make most shots count. For me, the laser on this weapon is a nice toy, a good way for S&W to make money but, it is useless. There is no accuracy with it and I don’t have the time nor inclination to send it back to the shop so they can tool around with it to see if they can get it to line up. ...more
I bought this one for a EDC light weight Wheel Gun. I could not be MORE pleased. The manual says the laser is factory set for 25 feet. Not being the trusting kind, especially if my life could be on the line, I double checked accuracy with a bore style laser. It was 4" high and 3" to the right. The Crimson Trace Laser is as good as it gets ...more
Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 - Awesome!
I am a loyal Smith and Wesson owner and couldn't pass up the great deal Smith and Wesson had on the Bodyguard 380. This gun makes a nice addition to my gun collection, is fun to shoot, and a quality Smith and Wesson product. I've put approximately 200 rounds through this gun and have had no issues, misfires, light fires, or jams. I purchased the model with the thumb safety, which also doubles as a slide lock. It has a heavier trigger but I think that's for safety reasons for those models without a thumb safety. The magazine ejects without getting caught and is easy to insert too. Comes with two six-round magazines, cable lock, and a soft case that holds the extra magazine and gun itself. This makes a nice carry gun when I don't want to carry my 9mm. With practice, accuracy will get better as all guns are accurate and a gun will only shoot as good as the shooter aims it. I picked up some spare magazines as they are inexpensive and readily available. I recommend this gun for anyone looking for a 380. ...more
Good design, could use some quality improvements
I LOVE my S&W BG380 with safety and red laser sight! This gun is terriffic value for money with a very hard wearing finish. It has a long trigger pull for safety, fits in a pocket and is snappy but not too snappy for a male like me. It's perfect for a purse, summer carry in shorts pocket or backup use in an ankle hoslter, and with a little bit of work can be made into an excellent gun. My son hates it. Earlier made guns had teething troubles with magazine release/retention, troublesome laser sight and breaking firing pins. But, S&W has apparently rectified those now. Newly made guns should be fine, and mine is...except...the firing pin and its chamber are only accessible for cleaning after removal of the rear sight, which is installed excessively tightly (by design). After a few hundred rounds, my gun misfired due to light firing pin strikes on the cartridge primers. (Being double-action hammer fired, you can just pull the trigger again and it should go bang though). Note: some ammo manufacturers do have harder primers than others. I wasn't happy with that though, so I purchased a sight removal tool, removed the rear sight and stoned the sight vee to make the sight easier to remove and reinstall. Then I cleaned out the firing pin chamber. I also tightened up the action by installing a stronger after-market recoil spring and hammer spring. Using washers, I centered the hammer (which rubbed on the slide). No more light strikes! I smoothed the trigger pull by removing the frame and taking high spots off the frame where the trigger mechanism was rubbing. I filed the magazine release button shorter because when shooting I often bumped it accidently, causing the mag to drop out. My gun is now fully reliable! The slide take-down lever is admittedly way too quirky making cleaning a pain, until you get used to it. Gave it a 3 star because of the above issues. Once fixed, it gets a 4. ...more
