    i looked at a couple citadels at gander mountain. the 5 inch and the 3.5 inch 1911 models. didn't seem bad, the machining quality and finish were on par with the price. i've heard they're reliable from reviews on other forums.

    The Legacy Line is primarily an importer of foreign (european) made firearms. A lot of them are quality stuff, just not real known brands. I am sure they are not hand made and fitted customs, but probably very serviceable and usable firearms.

    I do not own one and have never fired one but I have heard they are good guns.

    Citadel is made by Armscor, The same folk's that make Rock Island Armory. They are good stuff.

    a local shop sells them; they go for about the same price as RIAs. the shop i frequent is known for their integrity, and they generally don't deal in junk, so if they're selling them, they must be decent guns.

    They were formally the CD line as mentioned made by Armscor. The quality is higher than the American Classic line.

    I believe that they have a lifetime warranty covered by Armscor, the manufacturer.

    This is correct. Check the 1911 forums. You'll find all the info you need. I own the 3.5" RIA which is an excellent piece IMO. Someone else mentioned their lifetime warranty and all indications are that they have excellent customer service as well.

    Good luck.

    I picked up a new Citadel 45CS on Wednesday. The owners manual states 1 year warranty. Shoots real nice, but I may have to send it in already. The slide won't close if you drop a round in the chamber first. It will of course run fine from the magazine tho. The extractor is hitting the case and not slipping past. My buddies RIA CS does not do this.

    I emailed Ivan at Armsor in NV and he said they'd send someone to pick it up. I unfortunately didn't get to check for any further communication today.

    But, overall quality is a notch above the RIA GI compact. Better trigger, grips, and sights, that's about it near as I can tell.
