    trigger pull weight question

    I did a quick search for this topic and didn't really turn up anything concrete. I'm looking for actual numbers for trigger pull weight of the 380 BT's. Here's the scenario, I have an Ruger LCP pistol and a 327 fed Mag revolver. My wife loves to shoot but she's only 5-3 and 123lbs. She does well with the LCP but the pistol is a little small for target shooting..the revolver isn't a consideration she just can't seem to pull the trigger with enough confidence. So I'm looking at picking up the BT-380 in a nice feminine look (probably the breast cancer awareness version) but I would like to know what the poundage is for the trigger pull so I can compare apples to apples. Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello, kc8jvh and welcome. The specs listed for the standard Thunder .380 are I believe, 5-7 lbs SA and 8-13 lbs DA. On the other forum (www.bersachat.com), one of the members recently posted the averages of 5 trigger pulls on two of his .380s. Both SA trigger pulls were over 4 lbs, but not over 4.5, and both DA pull averages were in the 8lb range, one was low 8, the other was around 8.5...

    I carry a BT380 every day. I've had it about 4.5 years and never had any problems with it.

    I measured 5 lb., 10-11 oz. consistantly with my BT22; same basic gun/mechanism on SA. I did not measure DA. This was with about 1,000 rounds on the weapon.

    A whole lot less than a PPK/S PPK or a SIG

    well that sounds like a plus.

    The ruger is somewhere close to 5.6 or 6 but only DA no SA the trigger pull is a little long for my tastes but for what I use it for it's just fine. Now...are the single stag mag pistols from Bersa thinner in the handle than the double stack mags? keeping in mind the .380 models.
