    My bg 380 is having light strikes i already sent it off to s&w twice just got it back today shot 100 rounds 5 light strikes:steamed:

    They replaced the firing pin and firing pin safety spring im going to send it back but doe's anyone have any suggestions on what to say refund? new gun? or try to repair again. Im at my wits end with this gun, was supposed to be my summer carry i cant trust it unless i can get 200 rnds threw it without malfuction. So dissapointed with s&w quality.

    Im going to carry my g19 and not care about printing

    Mine had the same problem-though only with Fiocchi and one other foreign ammo noted for harder primers. It's never been an issue with domestic stuff.

    not hard primers mine happens with blazer, pmc, and wwb funny i ran some mfs stuff threw it no problem. Something is wrong with it. Im hoping for a refund so i can throw the money down on a g26 but i doubt that will happen.

    That sucks for sure. Mine went back for the light strikes and the laser. They did good on the laser, but it still light strikes with Fiocchi.
    It reaffirms my distrust of tiny autos. Too many small parts, including springs, hammers and firing pins.
