Got a brand new Citadel Compact that I had on layway. It is an Officer size 1911 in .45. It is made by Armscor who also makes RIA. It appears very nicely finished and the slide to frame fit is excellent. Last Friday, I put 80 rounds through it. Extremely accurate and low felt recoil. Did have 2 minor issues early on in the 80 rounds that I attribute to break-in. One was where I loaded the magazine with only 2 rounds of Speer Lawman 230 and I had a failure to feed on the last round. Another was with Ranger T 230 where I only loaded the magazine with 5 rounds and the slide failed to lock back on the empty magazine. Despite these 2 minor hiccups, I was extremely pleased with this little 1911. Last Monday, I went out and put another 70 rounds through it, now for a total of 150 rounds. Only 1 hiccup within the first 15 or so rounds of this day. The slide failed to go fully into battery, by just about a 1/4 inch that was easily remedied by slightly pushing the rear of the slide. Again, I would attribute that to break-in. Same great accuracy as day 1. Still extremely pleased with this pistol. Today, I called Rock Island Armory in Nevada and spoke with gunsmith Arnell, and I was extremely pleased with his professionalism and customer service. The reason I called was to get an ambi safety (I am left handed). I told him of the above hiccups, and without hesitation, he volunteered to send me a new recoil spring, and added that should the gun not run 100% after a few more rounds for break-in, that he will send me a shipping label at RIA's expense and take care of it. He also confirmed that the warranty is lifetime on the Citadel as well as the RIA. This is what I consider top notch customer service. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
