    Citidel 1911, sweetest trigger I`ve ever seen on a 1911,crisp break with adjustable creep (there ain`t none) It fired ball and HP without a hickup and quite accurate for plain sights..Gonna just put some sight paint on them is all.AND it has an ambi safety which is a nice feature for us Lefties.Its made by AMSCOR the same folks that make rock Island Arsenol from original colt Machinery..Its a solid gun, $489 OTD hard to beat

    A good 1911 for under five hundred bucks! I'm gonna look into that. Thanks

    Did some research, that's a well built firearm! I wonder how the compact model would hold up.

    I see no need for anymore guns. I cannot shoot all the ones I have now, but, I NEED a 223/5.56 and a 1911. Just because...Nice Citadel. I am squinting oneyed at a RIA Officers Model. Just like my first girlfriend, I held her I squeezed her and wanted her for my own. Then she started shootin off...never mind.

    Changed my mind...I want the adjustable sight Match model.

    That is a beauty. Oldbrass, you done well.
    Always liked the 1911 platform. It's a time tested classic design.

    The Citidel and Rock Island TAC 1911s are the same gun with a few cosmetic differences and a few bucks more. Both Model 70 inards. Different roll mark, Citidel has slide serrations, comes with a little upgraded wood grips, and a different Importer. Otherwise same gun. And you are right about the triggers, Best out of the box of any brand. Both are the BEST VALUE of any 1911.
