My initial reaction upon receiving the Citadel CIT9MMFSP was %uFFFD%uFFFDnice!%uFFFD%uFFFD. The gun comes with a Plano-styled hard case, complete with two layers of high-density foam bearing the Citadel name on the cover. Thank you Citadel, that saves me $8 as that would have been the first optional purchase for the gun. The owner%uFFFD%uFFFDs manual, 2 spent test cartridges and a firearms safety booklet are under the top foam layer of the case.

The gun comes packaged in a plastic bag with a generous amount of lubricant/protectant applied to it. After a good cleaning you come to realize that the gun itself is very nice. The grips are heavily textured as well as the back-strap. I don%uFFFD%uFFFDt care for the feel of it in your hand as the texture is too aggressive for my taste, but others may like it. The slide to frame fitting is very tight, no rattles of any kind. The gun has a parkerized finish, a flat matte; not one of my favorites. The fore and aft serrations on the top slide are aggressive also, deep and bold. I think Citadel%uFFFD%uFFFDs intention was for consumers to not have any grip problems of any sort with this gun. The gun comes with 2 magazines, a nice feature not found in many purchases. The magazines are of the military style with no bumper pad at the base. The feed ramp is smooth and polished. The rear sight is of a Novak-style with dots cut into the sight, but no color fill to the dots.? The Citadel logo and name are on the left side of the frame emblazoned in a white billboard style. Could of done without that. But hey, they are proud of their firearm so I give them a pass. Overall workmanship of the weapon is very impressive for the price.

Took the gun to the range and shot 100 rounds through it. It was a partly sunny day with temps in the mid twenties. The very first 2 shots fired, were in a quarter-sized bulls-eye from 30 feet. Awesome! 2 problems that I did encounter during 100 rounds, was one FTE and the magazines alternately wouldn%uFFFD%uFFFDt drop freely from the gun and would not lock the slide back after the last round. Which is ok, since I had planned on getting some Wilson Combat magazines with the base pad. I like the look of a magazine with a base pad and it gives you slightly more to grip if you have large hands. Trigger pull was light with minimal creep.

In summation, this was the power-buy of the year and the best money spent at $329. The only upgrade I would consider is different grips and magazines. (A personalization of the handgun, therefore making it mine.) Other than that, this is one fine firearm and a positive addition to anyone%uFFFD%uFFFDs collection.

When I picked up the gun from my FFL guy we were both impressed with the overall quality. The gun was heavily oiled and sealed in a heavy plastic bag. These are good things for guns coming from overseas. Upon taking the gun home I broke it down and gave it a good cleaning. The trigger was very smooth with minimal creep, almost as good as my Kimber Pro Carry II, and about the same as my Taurus PT 1911. At the range I found the gun to be very accurate. The sights were right on, and easy to use. With the first clip I had one stovepipe. With the second clip the slide did not stay open on the last round. I list these as minor break-in problems, because the next 250 rounds were flawless, with no other problems. I found the gun to be well made. It was accurate and after a very short brake-in very reliable. They state in the manual that ball ammunition is recommended. I decided to try some Winchester Silver Tip Hollow Point Bullets just to see what would happen. I shot 25 rounds of these and there was no problem. I feel that this is a fine gun at any price, a great buy at BUD,s price.

As my first 1911 , this pistol did not disappoint me. Slide to frame fit is tight, no rattles whatsoever. Not a great finish but no marks and bluing or parkerizing is done really well. It went on sale for less than 400 at that time of purchase and I couldn't be more happier for an entry level 1911. The reviews are all true, BUD's is hassle free and quick in shipping.

bought this one back during the big summer sale-- for a little over three bills for a 1911 with all the "trimmings' i. just now got it paid off lay-away and got time to clean it up and fire a few rounds.
great trigger, one of the best i've seen out of the box, excellent fit and finish , no slack in the slide to frame, nice clean machining inside the frame. mine has the subdued slide--

seems accurate , no problems with the mags, the feed and lock the slide back on the last shot. fired 100 rounds of WWB today , lots of fun. sights could use some white dots or glow paint-- my grips look like walnut double diamond-- no hurry to change those, i did mirror polish the feed ramp took like 5 minutes--

this is the best deal i have ever got on a 1911! very happy camper! thanks buds!!
