      Comments about Howa Citadel M1911 Handgun:

      Keeping this review to the point, I like the gun, it works. I've ran +250 rounds in the first few days of owning it, without cleaing it or having it jam or missfire. It feels good in the hand and is very pointable. The trigger is pure gold, I've never shot a 1911 that was around the same price as this one that has had this good of a trigger. If your looking for a good priced 1911 then this is one to keep in mind.

        Comments about Howa Citadel M1911 Handgun:

        I use this for a carry pistol when it's jacket weather out. It's not a warm weather CCW. This thing is awsome nice weight, and balance. The price was very resonable. Very accurate, and solid. I put a set of Houge grips for it, and wow. Shoots slick puts lead down range in a hurry. I would definatly recommend it to anyone. You can upgrade it even further if you want. At this price point you can afford to.

          Shooting the Citadel 1911 for the first time was a little bit nervous, didn't know how the gun will react as well as myself. after shooting 100 rounds with no problem, i fell in love with this pistol. very smooth shots with low recoil. the whole structure is completely balanced. The Citadel M1911 is well worth the price and more.
          i highly recommend this gun to anyone looking for a full size gun with a lot of back bone structure. you will not be disappointed
