I purchased this pistol to replace my deep conceal Bodyguard due to never fully appreciating the hand feel or the trigger pull on the Bodyguard. First off, Bud's did well for shipping, which arrived one day early. I sized both the Bodyguard and the RM380 up, and the RM380 is just a hair wider than the Bodyguard, but both easily use the same holsters. The hand feel (for those with larger hands) of the RM380 seems to allow a more positive grip of the firearm than the Bodyguard, and the trigger is quite a bit different in a much better way. The Bodyguard seems to start heavy, have a long pull and finish lighter (though still uncomfortably heavy) and a bit unpredictable. This caused me to have issues keeping the sites on mark while shooting. The RM380, however, had a bit shorter pull (in comparison to the Bodyguard but still a bit long) that was entirely smooth and even weighted until you get to the end where there is an obvious stop that is overcome with just a bit more pressure. This pull definitely assists with target acquisition during the pull and a positive break that I was not expecting, but in a good way. Rapid pulls of the trigger overcome the break easily and this trigger action greatly improved my shot placement over the Bodyguard. I cycled many rounds of both standard Federal brand ammunition and Hornaday Critical Defense with zero failures. Unlike the Taurus TCP I also owned, the RM380 also has a larger ejection port (as does the Bodyguard) which allows for full extraction of the longer unfired Hornaday Defense loads that the TCP required the magazine to be removed for the unfired round to fall out of when clearing the gun. All in all I hope all this helps you if you've run through a few pocket carries looking for the perfect one. I believe the RM380 is for me.

Quality little 380. Nice looking, feels good in the hand and is pretty pleasant to shoot for such a small gun. I have put a little over 100 rounds of mixed FMJ's (both brass and steel cased) through it and have not had one single problem. The trigger pull is LONG but it feels very smooth and fairly light. You would have a hard time pulling this trigger on accident which is good for safety yet It really didn't take me long to get a good feel for the trigger and I was able to shoot pretty accurately with it. It carries great and feels lighter then I expected considering its not a plastic frame like a lot of pocket sized 380's.

Awful little pistol. I recently gave my Taurus TCP to a friend who needed it, decided to replace it with this Remington. The trigger is so bad that I actually thought it was broken! Nope, my gunsmith said this is how it was designed. The travel is so extremely long, and the trigger itself is shaped in such a peculiar way that accuracy is way down. I\'ve already ordered an aftermarket trigger fix for it, but my hopes aren\'t that high. Will probably give it away and count this gun as an expensive little mistake.

Very nice little pocket pistol. Comes with 2 mags and a lock. Does not include a case, unless you consider a cardboard box to be a case. Shoots well. For the price, it's a good deal. And thanks Buds, good job.

This is my second RM380. I picked one up when they first came out. It has been 100% reliable and very accurate for it's size. My nephew now carries that one. I'll be taking the new one to the range this weekend. I predict that I'll be carrying it next week. The transaction with Bud's was seamless as usual.

The RM380 appears to be a solid firearm. However, there are some design problems with the barrel. The ledge that the guide rod rests on is too shallow and should be curved to accommodate the round end of the rod. This flaw allows the guide rod to easily drop further into the barrel. My RM380 has a problem feeding JHP ammo (SIG V-Crown Elite 115gr and Hornady Critical Defense 115gr). The round fails to reach the feed ramp, landing just below the ramp. To recover, the slide must be locked back and the mag ejected (with the round stuck in the mag). This happens with both mags. Another issue I\'m having is with ball ammo. They feed just fine until the last round - the slide will lock back and the round will simply fall out. My last issue is with the sticky, hard to remove gunk coating on the gun and mags, both were cleaned and oiled. After watching a video where the gun went through 500 rounds in real time, I\'m convinced that other than the design flaw, the other issues are with this particular RM380. I\'ll be sending it in for service. Once the gun is returned I\'ll update my review.
