Just got my first 1911 today. I went and picked up a used Citadel 1911 compact tactical 45 acp. It was $389 and is in really good shape. Took it to the range and it shoots like a dream. The trigger is crisp and it has very little recoil for a 45. Went through 200 rounds and not a single issue. It was accurate and the sites are pretty nice for a lower end 1911. The grips were already upgraded when I bought it. I went ahead and purchased a kimber flush mag for it and it fits beautifully. I think the finish could be a little better, but ive seen much worse. The internals are smooth look to be machined well. I do believe that this will be my EDC for a while. From 25 feet I think this is pretty damn good for a 300 dollar 1911. No complaints here.
