I have a PonyPocketlite DAO that i bought in about 1999 #NR11XXX
I like it as a second gun to my Glock because it functions the same and all the controls are in the same places (slide lock, mag release) it has been perfectly reliable over the years but the finish is starting to show wear i will probably send it to APW Cogan for refinishing pretty soon.
I have to say there have been some really nice little guns produced in the last few years but still nothing that quite replaces the little pocketlite.

I don't shoot it a ton these days (maybe a box a year) but when i first got it i shot it a bunch, how many rounds exactly i couldn't say. 1000? enough to be satisfied that it will be reliable (but it must be well cleaned and properly lubed) and to know that it will shoot a box of blazers but once it warms up it has malfunctions with them, but no other ammo, ball or jhp. the local range sells blazer ammo. out to about 25ft it is about as accurate as my Glock 27 (my primary gun)
The pocketlite is the alloy frame version of the Pony
i am about ready to re spring it but am hesitant because of troubles i have had with wolff springs in my S&W revolvers and in Glock magazines and also because it has not had malfunction one yet.
i usually wear my gun strongside in a desantis thumbreak under a t shirt. that is to say up against my skin so the finish on the frame is starting to show some wear and the chrome is long gone from the horsey medallion on the grip. i am currently getting ready to do a refurb on it, i always wanted to send it to Scott, Macdougall and Assoc. but they are no longer doing business.
Mac Scott (one of the partners in SM&A) still has a supply of the guide rods but when they're gone that's it. google his name or SM&A if you want to find him or i'll get you his e-mail (can't right now)they're about $30.00+/-
i am ordering one this week. once i have the guide rod and springs i will send the gun off to Accurate Plating and Weaponry (APW Cogan) in Fla for a refinish
(maybe black chrome or the brushed chrome finish) and a go thru for reliability (they are gunsmiths too)
that should keep me about forever on this little gun since i don't carry it everyday as i had done for a couple of years when it was absolutely necessary that my gun not be seen.
Regards,
Rich
