I just picked up a Citadel Compact (Officer size) 45 as a project gun. I'm going to paint it and polish the flats and god knows what else... I picked it up cheap when it was returned to LSB Auctions because it "shoots low". It's also interesting because it has a bull barrel. A bull barrel in a 1911 is a funny thing, because it "requires" that the barrel be fitted directly to the slide opening, without a bushing. The one point firmly in favor of the bull barrel is that it puts some weight out front. The barrel in the Citadel was clearly not fitted. It just sort of wallows in the slide opening, and can be jiggled up and down at full (factory) lockup. This means that as it is, it probably strings vertically pretty badly. It also means that any fitting to improve it is going to have to be done at the upper and lower lugs. I think my first pass is going to consist of a longer link and a slide-stop with a bigger pin. That can be done pretty cheaply and with a small investment in time. Pictures and range report to follow.
