    Regent 1911

    A close friend bought the Regent 1911 auto recently and I fired it last weekend at the range. I was impressed by the pistols overall quality, it's accuracy and cost.
    Do any of the board members have any experience good or bad with this weapon and if so I would be very appreciative of the feedback?

    This is the first I've heard of them. They look like a decent budget-priced 1911. Less than $500

    Hate to revive an old thread, but I didn't want to start another. Anyone have any further experience with the Regent. My Dad pointed out an advert in a hunting rag, hoping I would pick one up so HE can see if they're any good. Most of the reviews I've found seem to be positive. The "Made in Turkey" isn't as appealling as "Made in U.S.A."; but it's infinitely more appealling than "Made in China".
