I traded a Beretta 84F that I'd had for decades but my arthiritis and a very stiff slide meant it to find a new home. I went to a gun show and a dealer I knew said he'd like to have it so we struck a deal. He got the 84F, 2 mags and about 350 rounds of .380 ammo and I got a brand new Citadel .45 Compact - plus $70. I figured it was a good deal and couldn't waitto get it to the range.
After the first mag was emptied my only thought was WOW!! Undoubtably the best trigger I've come across yet. I also have a 1st Gen. CZ-75 I picked up in Europe in the mid-80's that had over $1K of custom work by Robar and the Citadel beat it by a mile. I won a Texas hog hung and I'll be carrying it in the field as a backup. A 30.30 for the porkers, the CZ for piglets and the Citadel for just in case - loaded with Universals fluted solid copper 165gr +P. If one hog comes close enough, I'll try and take it with the.45. The ranch has a rule - head and neck shots only but I think I'm give the Citadel a try. Be getting a lot of range time in before that hunt and if I can hit the head/neck 9 outta 10 times at 40-50 yards I think it's doable. P.s., I've been shooting since I was 13 - I just turned 74.
