    I'm thinking about getting a trigger job on my Bodyguard. I read that is comes out of the factory at about 12 lbs pull....I'd like it more in the 6-7 lb area. The question I have is that it looks as if lightening the trigger pull by reducing the spring compression could also reduce the pressure on the striker...perhaps causing some misfires....

    Has anyone out there had any BG trigger work done?

    Nope. Don't plan on it either.... since I don't use the manual safety, I want to keep the trigger pull the way it is.

    Nope. I like the trigger the way it came.

    Never heard of anyone getting a BG380 down to 6 pounds, it certainly is one heck of a trigger.

    Maybe down to 10#, but I suspect you'll have ignition issues if you try to take it downer.

    I'm waiting for the same thing, but no one has one worked out yet.

    I have ignition issues in mine using tulammo the way it is. Once you shoot it enough you can feel the "2nd stage" click in, just takes a lot of practice.

    Only thing I can say about the BG is don't send it back to S&W, they will just return it dirty and say the trigger is "in spec" with their production. Even if the trigger is more than 15 pounds.

    Try taking it to a competent gunsmith, they can probably help you better than the factory will.
