I bought the Citadel RIA .45 . I love this gun, I also have a 70 Series Colt Combat Commander. And I prefer the RIA over it. It feels better, and you get more bang for the buck. I have never had an issue with it yet. It comes with an oversized Ambi safety, skelotonized hammer and trigger, nice front and rear serrations. My only complaint would be the bushing, nothing wrong with it , but a little sharp. Makes it uncomfortable to press and rotate. I'm going to replace it, other than than great pistol.
