Default How do you disassemble an SW380?

I have the predecessor of the Bodyguard. The SW380. It doesn't have any way to break down.Has 2 roll pins , but didn't want to just dive in without checking to see if anyone has done it. Could'nt even find any U-Tube videos on disassembly! Thanks for any help out there.

You should be able to order an owner's manual from S&W.

In any case:
You use the takedown and assembly tool to punch out the rear takedown rail pin - DO NOT remove any other pin. Afterwards move the slide back and up until you can move it forward - like most 380's that use the barrel as the recoil spring guide.

I just did a search and found a pdf copy of the owner's manual:

S&W owner's manual sigma 380

I did this search and found many youtube videos:

Do you know where I can find a takedown tool? I bought a used S&W 380 a few years ago and I know nothing about it. I bought it as my starter gun because it was inexpensive. I later found out that it doesn't always chamber the first round out of the mag...... possibly because it was ridden hard and put away wet (dirty)

If you know where I can find one please help me out because I really want to shoot it instead of having it be a $160 paperweight from now on
