BODYGUARD 380 1.jpg
M&PBODYGUARD 380 2.jpg
I was wandering around a gun show last weekend.
Ran in to this guy selling two Bodyguard 380s.
One is an older model, slide has BODYGUARD 380.
Other one has M&P BODYGUARD 380 on the slide.
Both have factory laser.
One Insight Laser other Crimson Trace.
Bought them both for 500.
Did some web surfing found out the Insight Laser was junk.
Called Crimson Trace and they sent me a replacement Laser $25.
My question is did I pay to much?
And how old are these two Bodyguards?

Around here you can get a brand new one for $309.99, plus sales tax and background Check fee which would take it up to about $334 .
The original Bodyguard 380 came out in 2011. In 2014 it became the M&P Bodyguard with a Crimson Trace laser instead of the InSight laser

You did OK with what you paid for both of the 380's. It's great that Crimson trace sent you a replacement laser for the one that had Insight laser.

You did well at $500 for both. It's good to hear the CT will replace the Insight for just $25. That's a huge bargain in itself.
I prefer the slide serrations on the newer M&P over the original serrations. One thing is for sure, you won't have a problem finding a carry pistol or a BUG with those in your collection.

The red trigger on the top one is an aftermarket part from Galloway Precision. It looks like the Santiago short stroke trigger kit may have been installed. That trigger kit runs $100

Looks pretty good and sounds like a great deal for the price!

If you decide to sell one, it will make a nice offset for the one you keep.
