Having returned a two month old S&W BG38 "Bodyguard" twice for malfunctions, I suggest you avoid that model.
The BG38 is the polymer/aluminum/steel 5 shot revolver which looks like a J-frame, but is not. The second time back S&W called and informed me the gun was unrepairable.
They are sending me a "post-lock" 642 J-frame as a replacement. Hopefully this new gun works.
