Been in the market for a pistol? If so, Colt is giving shooters a pretty good reason to give them a nod.
On Oct. 15, the Connecticut-based manufacturer kicked off a rebate offer on three of its popular semiautomatic pistols that runs until Dec. 31. The company is giving a $100 rebate with the purchase of a Colt 1991 Government Model and a $75 rebate with the purchase of a Mustang XSP or Pocketlite.
The 1991 Government Model is a 1911 pistol that Colt bills as a direct decedent of the original M1911. The .45 ACP has a 5-inch barrel, full metal frame and slide, and a 7+1 capacity.
The Colt Mustangs are both chambered in .380 ACPs and are single-action only semiautomatics patterned after the 1911. The XSP and Pocketlite share many of the same features – 2.75-inch barrel, 6+1 capacity, 5.5-inch overall length, to name a few.
The big difference between the Mustang models are their frame material. The Pocketlite has an aluminum frame (weighing in at 12.5 ounces), while the XSP is a polymer pistol (11.8 ounces).

The Ventcore™ platform is built with a special fusion of synthetic non moisture-absorbing materials, and the .093 Kydex® shell is attached using stainless steel hardware. This is the toughest, lightest, and most comfortable IWB holster you’ll find on the market.
