Legacy Sports International, Inc., have added a new member to their popular line of M-1911s: The Citadel Cerakote M-1911 in Flat Dark Earth (FDE). Aside from making one good-looking firearm, the Cerakote high-end finish is the most durable protection against corrosion, impact and scratching. The coating also aids in smooth slide action in charging and cycling the pistol.

The entire line features a slide stop with grooves, flared ejection port, extended thumb safety and grip safety with beavertail.

Full-size models of the Citadel M-1911 have a five-inch barrel with full guide rod, an ambidextrous safety and two magazines.
