Anybody have any citadel 1911s and how are they I heard there better then rock island armory.. There made by the same company I know the citadel has better mods on it anybody have a citadel that likes it?
Had a Citadel Compact when they first came out. Hated the gun. It would not feed any brand of HP ammo. After reading the manual it says that the gun was not made to shoot HP ammo and that modification by a gunsmith would be required. Big turn off for me as I bought the gun as a carry option. Second issue was the barrel appeared to be polished stainless steel, but it turned out to be just raw carbon steel that was polished. The barrel hood rusted almost immediately. Then the front sight would come lose and slide around after the first few rounds. It was one of the only 1911s I've ever sold. Some people like them, but I won't recommend them.
