    S/W BG 380 serial numbers.

    I've read a lot about the problems with the bg380 in the serial #range of EAA and that ones starting with EAB might be better. Anyone hear anything ? I also have a question, does anyone know how hard it is to rack the slide on these ? I'm wheelchair bound and have some arthritis in my hands(I've thought about their revolvers)

    I have one of the EAA serial numbers and had to send it back the other day. It is very easy to rack the slide. From my understanding the ones with the EAB serial numbers have been problem free. Even with the single problem I had, I still like the gun for its size and features. I hope this helps. God Bless

    I haven't heard anything about the serial numbers. I just got mine back from S&W. There was a problem with the laser light switch on the left hand side that needed repair. The slide is not hard to rack. However, the thumb safety is very difficult to flip on/off. However, I don't see this as a major problem as it is really unnecessary feature in my opinion. With the long trigger pull, I see no reason to flip the safety on. It is very similar to the Keltec P3AT, both in handling and accuracy.
