Hmmm. I didn't realize they had done a redesign on it for this year. Looks like the same pistol with a slightly different grip, less the laser. I wonder how the trigger compares.

Well now 2 magazines included (finger groove and flat butt plate). New Ergonomic grip, external takedown lever and slide stop, manual thumb safety, double action fire control (2nd strike compatibility)

Other then the ergo grip(maybe) all those features were on the original.

It's a little bit bigger but the caliber and trigger more than make up for it. I will still be doing an apex kit and sight swap on it though.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.
Ditto, except I bought the Shield 9mm. I could not stand the trigger on the BG.

I didn't know about the new Bodyguard, they give you a second mag and dropped the lazer. I really don't use the lazer any way. I think it's been more trouble than its worth...

My lazer never worked w the switch, I could remove the button and use something metal to activate it even after Smith sent 2 different sets of buttons. Mine came w 2 flat bottom mags a dayplanner type case I believe it was a earlier model, I felt for the money $340 it was a great little gun.

I bought one for my fiancé and she shoots it a lot better than me. Personally I hate the trigger feels like it ten plus pounds. But she doesn't have a problem with it. It's very small and I like it comes with the laser for only around 375. Good price

The ten pound trigger pull is design in on purpose, being a small powerful pocket gun it was designed for targets less the 10 meters best around 20 foot range. Idea is if you have to pull the trigger that hard the accidental discharge rate would be very low and it you pull and shoot at 20 foot it may not be a bulls eye put the target will be hit.
I would never use mine on a threat target of more than 20 foot period.
That slide comes back with a bunch of power and if you grip high as I do you stand a chance of getting a thumb/finger skin graft!
Sw service is great but they will not lighten trigger pull on this gun and I also would never recommend doing so.
The BG 380 is a difficult gun to shoot but fill it with CoreBons in a pocket holster and you will forget it is there until you need it.
I have 5 MP 9's and 40's and even the 9C 9MM I cannot carry as a CCW shows in my clothes.
BG so far is the only one I can carry in a pocket holster and not imprint in clothes. If I find a better choice I will look for an excuse to acquire one!
Take note this is not a gun you will shoot many rounds out of since it is more expensive price per round and just plain hard to shoot, but a nice lil friend to have close by.
