    While I was on vacation last week I stopped by Double D's gun shop down in Live Oak, FL. While I was there, he showed me this compact 1911 made by Citadel. I had never heard of that company but the pistol looked good and I thought it shot very good (Dan let me take it out back of his shop and fire it), so I bought it and had him ship it to my local gun shop. It came today, here is a picture of it.

    Citadel's are now imported by Legacy (same company - Rock Island Armory).They are the same/similar to the Charles Daly's when they were with Armscor (Charles Daly is now associated with Bul in Israel). I have seen them as low as $480.00 or so .... new - normally they run a little more. I understand they are pretty good.

    Not bad pistols for the money. My son bought one and after i did some accuracy-reliability work on it, shot some decent groups. Pick up a couple of Wilson Combat mags and remember to keep the recoil spring changed and it will serve you well.

    I hope you like it. I thought it shot well and has a good trigger. Good luck with it!
