The RIA GI model is the most bare bones 1911 available. This is for those who want the traditional GI look.

The Citadel comes with some nicer upgrades such as extended beavertail, different hammer, ambidextrous safety, front slide serrations, replaceable sights and skeletonized trigger.

Both should function the same (made by the same manufacturer). Just a matter of looks/features that you want.

Citadel is a good buy for what you get. I had the RIA FS tactical and foolishly sold it then it fell off roster. Essentially the same handgun.
