I just bought a Citadel fullsize 1911. They are made in the Phillipines and are imported by Legacy, pretty much the same as Rock Island.
This thing shoots like a dream, period. The only thing I don't like is the Parkarized finish. I had read up on the the Duracoat process and am positive it's something I can do. My only question is, how does it hold up? I'd like to carry this gun someday and will the Duracoat hold up to to being in the holster? So, if you have used Duracoat on something how has it help up so far? If I'm happy with the pistol I may do my AR. Oh, I'm looking into the Matte Black finish for the 1911. Pics would help! Thanks folks!!!
