    Hi, purchased a .380 about a month ago. About 200 rounds through it. Good shooter. Easy to handle. Hair trigger after the initial pull to get use to. Hard to disassemble and assemble but getting easier. Not an easy gun to clean for a senior citizen. A lot of questions about it and those will follow.

    how adjustable are the rear sights on the Thunder .380 and what are some choices in replacing such?

    Hey Wiz, The rear sights on the BT380 are adjustable for windage only, side to side or horizontal only. Like most handguns, the BT380 was sighted at the factory. However like anything else, shipping and movement may have change the sight alignment.

    All that is needed is a small flathead screwdriver. However, once the adjustment is done I would dab a little lock tight on the screw to keep it in place.

    As far as replacement sights on these, I'm not sure what's out there other than the factory sights. My suggestion would be to search the net and see what's available.

    Good luck!

    Hi Wiz! I hear what you're saying about cleaning, but it will be easier with time. Also, by comparison to a small, locked breach piece like the Bodyguard or LCP, it's a breath of fresh air. No tiny little lock pin to lose or try and jimmy back into place. You made a great choice!
