Legacy Sports International has added Cerakote coatings to select models of the Citadel M-1911 line of centerfire pistols. Cerakote provides an attractive, high-end finish, but more importantly, it is the most durable protection available for corrosion resistance, impact resistance and scratch-proofing in the industry today.

Right out of the box, these look and feel like custom 1911's. Cerakote coating is not only a protectant, but also smooths out the face between the slide and frame, creating much smoother slide action in both charging and cycling of the pistol. Add the already existing trigger that is far above an entry level gun, and you have a pistol that's ready for action.

The entire line of Citadel M-1911's comes with many features found only on higher priced handguns. All models include slide stop with grooves, flared ejection port, skeletonized hammer and trigger, beveled mag well, grip safety with extended beavertail and extended thumb safety. Full size models have a 5 inch barrel with full guide rod, two, eight round magazines and an ambidextrous thumb safety; compact models feature a 3.5 inch bushingless barrel and two, seven round magazines.

Cerakote models are available in black/od green finish with Hogue black grips or optional Dymondwood grips, pewter and black with Hogue black grips or optional Dymondwood grips and brushed/black with Hogue od green grips. Calibers are .45 ACP or 9mm Parabellum. MSRP: $741.00 to $755.00 depending on grip choice.
