I recently purchased the Smith &Wesson BODYGUARD .380. The first time I fired it, I found there were two features I didn’t like and I’ve set out to correct them.
I noticed, when sighting, it was difficult to pick up the front site between the rear posts. The following is my attempt to eliminate that difficulty.
The second feature to address is the excessively long trigger pull and reset. A modification kit is being developed and should be on the market in September.
First position the slide in the vise.
Using a bubble level, I insured the back of the slide, that is parallel to the rear sights, is perpendicular to the drill column.
Now I drill a spot, using a small center drill, approximately .025 deep. Repeat to other side.
Then I aligned the slide in the vise to repeat the drilling of the front site.
The final step is to apply the white paint to the three spot drilled depressions, using a metal marking soft point pen.
The spot drill on the front site didn’t show up sufficiently when painted. I decided to paint the entire top surface. The grooved surface were ideal and held the paint well
