Regent R100 1911
Umarex USA introduced their R100 1911 pistol at Shot Show this year but what separates the Regent 1911 from others is the price. The Regent 1911-A1 has a suggest retail of $499 but I’ve seen them going already for much lower. Shooters should be able to find the Regent 1911 from 400-500 dollars making this centennial classic easier to obtain. If you’re thinking it’s made of cheap material, well you would be wrong.
While the Regent 1911 is basically a vanilla pistol, it still comes with standard Hogue grips, a stainless steel hammer forged barrel and a low cut ejection port. Later on this year, Umarex will be releasing a stainless steel version that will retail for $599.
If the Regent 1911 is reliable, and uses all MIL-Spec parts, then I could see it being a great starter 1911. The 1911 has one of the biggest selection of aftermarket parts so one could easily start upgrading their budget 1911 and quickly have a superb pistol. Hopefully Gunblog.com can obtain one soon to give you guys a full review.
