Sorry I didn't see this sooner. It would also help to know what you are trading with.
But... I am a former citadel 1911 owner, and I can say it is the only 1911 I've owned that i wanted to get rid of. Keep in mind the beauty of 1911's is the feel that no two guns are identical. Well mine I would like to hope not. First 200 rounds= several misfeeds, several double feeds, multiple "full auto" events. It was accurate and liked the sights, but I am not okay with a gun randomly going full rambo mode. I had it exchanged for a new one. This had issues with failure to lock slides and double feeds. I got rid of it shortly after.
Keep in mind, the one you could get could be pistol nirvana (like most 1911's) but the citadel is not for me.
