Colt Introduces .380 Mustang Pocketlite Pistol

Colt Manufacturing Company has upgraded the Colt .380 Mustang Pocketlite semi-auto pocket pistol to enhance durability, reliability and accuracy, according to the company.

Colt's upgrades to the Mustang include precision machining, use of high-quality materials, and improvements in design. 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, in a release. "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."

The handgun weighs less than one pound with a loaded magazine. It measures 5.5 inches long and has a 2.75-inch barrel. The minimal weight and length of the gun are combined with a short single action trigger, improved grip and frame design, as well as firing pin safety block.

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 were our top priorities 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."
