Much like the .380 Mustang PocketLite design that preceded it, Colt's Mustang XSP is a small, lightweight and reliable handgun-except, this time, it's sporting a polymer frame.

Such a frame, of course, is the most noticeable difference between the two models-but it's not the only one. Colt spent a significant amount of time adding a series of ergonomic touches to the firearm's frame, improving its performance in the operator's hand. The features that have made PocketLite successful are still noticeable-the High Profile Sights, Commander style hammer and .380 ACP chambering are all there.
