WEST HARTFORD, Conn. –-( Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC, celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, is proud to introduce a new and improved version of the classic Colt Mustang.

The new Colt .380 Mustang Pocketlite is small, lightweight and boasts enhanced durability, reliability and accuracy, making it an ideal handgun for personal protection.

The precise machining process, use of high quality materials and improvements in design make Colt’s new .380 Mustang Pocketlite one of the most consistent and reliable firearms on the market. The aluminum alloy receiver, stainless steel slide and barrel are CNC machined from solid bar stock for precise tolerances.

“Machining solid stock is certainly a more involved manufacturing process,” said Joyce Rubino, Vice President of Marketing, Colt’s Manufacturing Company, “But it is that process, combined with our engineering specifications, expertise and demand for perfection that allows Colt to deliver one of the highest quality products available to today’s marketplace.”

With a loaded magazine, this handgun weighs less than one pound. It measures 5.5 inches long and has a 2.75-inch barrel. The minimal weight and length of the gun, combined with the short single action trigger, grip design, frame design and firing pin safety block, make this firearm ideal for personal protection.

The magazine holds six rounds. Improvements in powder and bullet design have increased the velocity and terminal performance of .380 caliber ammunition, adding to the viability of the Colt .380 Mustang Pocketlite for personal defense.

“Accuracy and reliability was a top priority as we looked at what improvements could be made to make this classic backup even better,” said Rubino, “Though the changes may seem subtle to the untrained eye, every Colt employee takes great pride in knowing that their dedication has helped bring a vastly improved and enhanced firearm to market.”

Have had a mustang on order since Jan. 2012,they say it will be another 8 to 12 weeks. Come on Colt this is 2012 not 1912, you want people to buy so produce the gun


You cant find the Colt Mustang pocketlite or a Kimber Solo 9mm Stainless pistol(s) I think these these companies should be ashamed of adv all these guns when they are not making them. False advertising?


Can anyone get this colt pistol? I've looked all over the country and I can not fine one for sale. With all do respect where, or maybe the question is why, is Colt not selling this hand gun. Thank you in advance for your attention in this matter. Colt mustang pocketlite 380.
