I'm looking to buy a 1911. I was looking at the rock island 1911 then saw the citadel 1911 and somewhat changed my mind. What do you think?
Yeah I'm gunna get the citadel. The rock island just has the standard hammer and trigger and does not feature a beaver tail as well as an ambidextrous safety. The guy at my local gun shop quoted me 545 plus tax and dros. Have you ever had to modify the feeding ramp? I was watching a YouTube vid and the guy had to take a dremel tool to it and re angle the feeding ramp because when he would rack a round into the chamber, the feeding ramp would push the projectile into the casing as it was chambering the round. Because the angle of the ramp was more vertical than horizontal. Make sense?Rick1967 said:I have a Citadel. Awesome gun. I use it to compete in IDPA once a month. I can hold my own against guys with top dollar guns. It is hard to get more gun for the money. Mine came with a beaver tail, skeletonized hammer and trigger and an enlarged ejection port. It is a lot of gun for the money. It has eaten everything I have fed it from 255 grain lead to 185 jacketed hollow points. You wont be sorry if you buy one.
