I also purchased a Citadel full size 1911 in .45acp about 3wks ago after reading lots of good things about them online. It seems to be a well made pistol and barrel bushing fits snug around the barrel to help with accuracy. Trigger pull isn't bad either --- measures at 5 1/2 pounds with my Lyman electronic trigger pull scale. That being said, I have also run into issues of ammo not feeding correctly with the factory mags. Found a good price on the Chip McCormick power mags and my ammo feeding issues went away. I like these mags so well that I've ordered a couple more. Figured I got a good enough deal on my pistol I'm not going to worry about the factory mags.
