Love the size, but disappointed in the performance. Was looking for a carry weapon, and the CW380 was appealing because it is about the same size as a wallet and probably the lightest available. After 500 to 600 rounds, I continue to struggle with at least 1 failure to feed on just about every magazine. Requires my locking the slide back, pulling the magazine, shaking the round out, and restarting. Not something one would want to do in an emergency. The gunsmith and I have found that the magazine spring relaxes to the point where there isn’t enough upward pressure to get a clean feed up the ramp. My answer is to not keep magazines loaded and replace the spring as it begins to fatigue. The CW380 is also fussy about ammunition. For everyday plinking at the range, Remington has tended to work better. JHP doesn’t work well at all.
