    I just checked the weight of a Thunder 380cc and my trigger pull guage went off the scale at 8 pounds. That would put mine at somewhere between 9 and 10 pounds for double action. The single action pull is between 4 and 5.

    Why? The trigger on the 380 is fine as it is, it has the right pull weight and is pretty smooth right out of the box. Any lighter and you might get glock leg. :eek:

    Best safety on any firearm is the one between your ears... !!

    The problem isn't the Glock trigger system...it's with the user

    who is unfamiliar with it's operation and who doesn't follow the

    most important rule...keep your booger picker off the trigger until

    you are ready to fire !!

    Hey, that's my line. :p

    Glock leg is from people not keeping their finger off the trigger when holstering or un holstering their weapon and from to light a trigger, especally on guns without a saftey.

    A range master put it this way - "Keep your finger off the trigger until the weapon is aimed at something you've already decided to destroy." If you have a Glock, and you've already decided to destroy your leg, well, so be it. :cool:

    BT380 on backorder, can't wait.

    New member. I just purchased and received a Thunder 380, without much in-store handling time. In short, now that I have the pistol, I find that the impaired strength in my right hand has difficulty with the standard trigger pull of the Thunder 380. I have visited a number of 3rd-party firearm spring vendors, but have found " 0 " who offer any Bersa springs, let alone a selection of trigger springs that I can try for a lighter pull. So, I guess my question is this. Can you recommend anywhere I can go to purchase a supply of various tension trigger springs for the Thunder 380? I am sad to say, if I can't reduce the trigger pull, I will likely have to sell the pistol..........which I haven't even fired one round through.

    A little Froglube will help, dry fireing with the other hand to help break it in. One other thing also, PATIENCE!

    Then they have the nerve to say; "the thing just went off while I was holding it by the grip . . . it's a faulty gun."

    My BT380 is the only pistol that I've never had any problems with and I've never needed to improve anything. It's perfect the way it is. "If it ain't broke,...;)
