Buying a 1911 used to require the buyer use their first born child as collateral due to the extreme costs. While some 1911's may still cost you upwards of $2,000.00 there are now other options. Thanks in part to our relationship with the Philippines that cost has dropped a considerable amount. Citadel, imported by Legacy Sports, is an excellent example of what Philippine Manufacturing and Philippine Steel have become. In WWII the Philippines was authorized to reproduce the 1911 for our US Soldiers fighting in the Asian front. They continue to reproduce feature rich 1911's at a fraction of the cost while still using excellent steel and quality components. Next time you are looking for a quality firearm for sport, home defense, hunting, or concealed carry while on a budget take a look at Citadel's offerings and you will find excellent quality and incredible value.
Straight from the pages of history comes the new Citadel M-1 carbine. Built to the exact specifications of the G.I. model used by U.S. infantrymen in both WWII theaters of battle and in Korea, this reproduction comes to you chambered in the fun and economical .22 LR cartridge. Used by officers as well as tankers, drivers, artillery crews, mortar crews and other personnel in lieu of the larger, heavier M1 Garand rifle, the M-1 carbine weighed only 4.5 to 4.75 pounds.
