I HAVE A CITIDALE M1-22 CARBINE, IT HAS BEEN RECALLED ALREADY AND THE ONE THAT WAS SENT BACK TO IS IN WORSE SHAPE THAN THE ONW THAT WAS RECALLED. I SHOT N10 ROUND THROUGH IT THEN THE CASSING STARTED TO HANG UP .I LOOKED CLOSER TO THE CHAMBER AND COULD SEE WHERE THE FIRING PIN IS HITTING THE CASSING SO HARD THAT IR HAS CAUSED A BUIRR ON THE EDGE OF THE CHAMBER AND WON'T EVEN LOAD A ROUND NOW. IT HAS NEVER BEEN DRY FIRED THE PIN JUST HITS TOO HARD. I LETT CHIAPPA FIREARMS KNOW AND THEY ACTED LIKE THEY DON'T WANT TO FIX IT NOW. IF YOU HAVE ONE THAT SHOOTS GOOD THEN YOU ARE AN EXCEPTION IN MY EYES. GOOD LUCK IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY ONE.

Just purchased a Citadel M-1 .22 Carbine. Although I haven't shot this gun yet, I'm disappointed with the number of plastic parts it contains. The magazines are plastic and the front sight appears to be plastic as well. The barrel band retaining spring nipple, which should engage the barrel band was not engaged. In fact, it was no where near even touching the barrel band. When I tried to carefully bend it out so it would engage as it should, the spring snapped in half and I had to super glue it back together. It's obviously there for appearances only and has no real funcitonal use in this particular rifle. The look and feel, from a distance, are very similar to an actual M1 Carbine, but when the two are compared side by side, the workmanship on the little .22 is no where near that of a real M1 Carbine. I think the $350 suggested retail price is a bit high. Spend a little more to get the real thing, and then purchase a Ruger 10-22 for a plinker. The Ruger is a much better gun.

just put 300 rounds through a citadel m1 .22 and it shot great. it is a fun little plinker. feels and shoots just like the original M1. it does jam if you hold the clip while shooting. so just use good ammo and dont hold the clip and it shoots great.
