The gun looks good - it's lightweight - but, there is a problem with the magazine, and it will not stay locked in , I have not shot this gun yet but I believe it will be a problem because the magazine will fall out without pushing the button. Sorry I'm disappointed.

Bought this rifle for the nostalgia. Have always like the style and I have no problem with 9mm. I'm sure my father carried one in WWII and Korean Conflict. I like the size and weight. Perfect for my wife to use. Disassembles/Reassembles easy enough. The problem with the rifle is the 9mm Baretta "style" magazines included with the rifle. Very low quality. They just don't fit properly. They don't lock in snug (They jiggle around) against the Beach which doesn't allow the bolt to pick the rounds properly.This causes FTFs and Jams. If I support it with the Mag resting on my palm (Which hold the mag tight against the breach) the gun fires fine. I had to replace the mags with Factory 9mm Baretta Mags and it now fires without any FTFs or Jams. I am happy with the rifle but not so much the magazines.

I purchased this rifle in Nov. 2014 and have shot about 400 rounds through it with a few fail to eject issues. All in all, it is a very accurate rifle that fires 9mm.
Nice, light weight and easy to tear down for cleaning. The appearance of the 9mm magazine is awkward looking and not very believable for this replica rifle. The 22 cal version is better for appearance but that wasn't my goal in purchasing the 9mm. I oil rubbed the bare stock to help seal it.

Although there have been many complaints on Citadels 22LR M1 carbine, hopefully they got it worked out in this model!
