I found a Legacy Sport - Citadel 1911 for $549.00 and was wondering if anyone here has one or know of anyone that does.

They have a 5" full size (holds 8) and a 3.5" CC (holds 6), both list for the same price. They have checkered grips, adjustable sights and come with 2 mags. They feel nice and tight and the blueing is real nice.

I'm considering getting one but I don't know anything about this brand. Does anyone have any info.

It's another product of the Philipines, as in Rock Island Armory.

there is one at my local gunshop... serial 00000 (not sure how many zeros) handling it, it feels very good... tighter slide fit than even most kimbers... I am impressed with it.. just dont have the necessary funds...

Looks like it could be a race between the two boys from Ohio!

I picked one up last weekend and just put 200 rounds through it last night.
Very nice trigger, No Issues with fmj. It does say in the manual that hp's require adjustment of the feed ramp, I'll have to try some this weekend.
Overall it shot very nice, I would buy another one.

both of mine are in the 500 ser#. Like I said they have fed , FMJ, SWC, JHP with no problem. They shoot lead real well. I sure am glad I bought them.
