It’s Back!

The Colt Mustang Pocketlite that is.

For 2012 Colt has brought back this classic, sub-compact .380 Auto. Testing here has not commenced yet but I did run two magazines of Winchester Silvertips through the little piece and it worked just fine. At 12.5 ounces the Mustang is a tad heavier than some of the newer, polymer .380s but it is a COLT!

As soon as I run this little gun through some testing and get a retail price, I’ll get back to you.
