Default Bit The Bullet On A 1911-22

Been thinking on one for a long time & looked at a Chiappa Citadel Tactical at my locals this mourning - First time i've seen this particular model & decided to give it a try
VERY impressed
Came with THREE mags & a very cool soft range bag with hearing protection, safety glasses, cleaning stuff & a BEER HOLDER built in HAD TO HAVE IT!!
Was VERY VERY impressed when i got home & shot it! Love the set of fiber optics- Put a quick hundred rds thru it useing all 3 mags & NO hic-cups -
The thing is a tack driver, was NOT exspecting that
Anyways for those like me that have been thinking on one to go along with our "real" 1911's I suggest you take a look at one
Oh yeah, HATE the stupid key safety thing but its on all of them i think-
Also the plastic mags but they work---





Real grown up 1911 grips fit too

OMG! A beer holder!?!? Geez, I thought I had it good with a bottle opener in my hat, but now they put beer holders in range bags? Awesome!

Hey, nice gun too!

Went with the Chiappa as well, different model though... Astonished at the accuracy, no FT-anything, this thing is waaay too much fun! I didn't get anything but an extra mag but for the price, I don't seem to care! Congrats Hoss!

...Pretty sweet those wood grips fit it too huh!! Looks great!!

You know when I saw it I tryed to remember who said what about which make of 1911-22 good or bad but of course couldn't so went with my gut & a hope - Glad now I did
The grip fit was a pleasant surprise
I'm kinda a 1911 grip fanatic - I now got 3 1911 type handguns & could dress them all different several times a week
