Bought one for my wife for Christmas, it is what she wanted. I have a 1911 style 45acp that she has been carrying for the past year. I have read that early on people had several issues with the early ones made. Trigger and disassembly pin problems, does anyone here have one or know if the issues have been cleared up?

It wasn't the weight or the recoil that bothers her, only the overall size. Too big to carry it concealed on her.

There are a number of threads on the troubles with the new Body Guard on the S&W forum. S&W was slow to recognize the problem and the first fix was not enough. S&W caught up quickly and appears to have solved the problem.
Here are three threads which should explain the affected guns, the nature of the problem and then a fix for the laser button. The only reason my wife does not have one is she did not like the laser button.

BG serial range for trouble

You should have seen the look on my wife's face when she opened up her bg380 yesterday mornng. It almost made her cry, and not like the time I got her the broom with matching dust pan.

I know it may sound weird to alot of people but that is one of the things I love about her. She has been carrying my 1911 style 45acp for the past year and has been wanting something less cumbersome and had seen and held this model. Money has been so tight for the past 8 months, she didn't expect anything. One of her friends from work even called and told me how good I did that she couldn't quit talking about it.
