Our Assessment: Made for the 2014 Friends of NRA Gun of the Year, this is a matched set Mustang Pocketlite and Government Model Enhanced Stainless. This is quite the pair with a full-size 1911 chambered for the venerable .45 ACP which has a host of modern upgrades and the compact, lightweight .380 ACP. With matching serial numbers and their original box, these pistols look like they’ve barely seen handling and come with a Certificate of Authenticity which notes that there were only 1,135 of these sets produced. Whether you’re a fan of Colt, the NRA, or just think it’s nifty to have a matched set of a full-size .45 and a compact .380, this set will add nicely to any collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
