Umarex USA Regent R100 .45 ACP 1911

    Umarex USA will soon be importing their first centerfire pistol, the Regent .45 ACP 1911. This pistol, manufactured by the Turkish firm Trabzon Gun Industry, was previously imported by IAC. Umarex have told me that they have been working closely with Trabzon to ensure more strict quality standards. Unlike the previous Regent 1911s imported by IAC, the Umarex Regent all feature Hogue grips.

    From the press release …

    The steel investment cast frame gives the Regent the weight of the original M1911, while the 7-­-round steel detachable magazine allows for quick reloading. The wide spur hammer, arched mainspring housing, and low cut ejection port are all designed to give maximum performance and accuracy. From the standard feature Hogue® grips to the stainless steel hammer forged barrel, the Regent is truly an outstanding value for the quality.

    The MSRP for the blued version of $499. A stainless version will be introduced later this year with a retail price of $599.
