Looks like it might be a Regent and IAC is the importer. Bud's has Turkish 1911's (the Regent is Turkish) for $340-$500 depending on options new. I don't know which manufacturer in Turkey makes it, I have guns from Sarsilmaz and Girsan and they are all good quality. Heard good things about the Tisas but do not own one.

If you don't have 1911, you should get it. Best handgun ever designed vs. tupperware. :D


Sorry. It doesn't really seem like anyone is making bad 1911s these days, with one exception that isn't this company and that escapes my mind at the moment.

It appears to be a standard G I 1911 A-1?
if so you can pick up a Used RIA or ATI like that for less money ad have brand recognition/ warranty that people are familiar with and makes resale much more attractive.
Just my thoughts.
425 for a used 1911 isn't that big of a deal unless its a Colt, Dan Wesson, S & W etc.

1911's and Glocks are very different weapons. I have both and carry the Glock 22. I know there are plenty of people who carry 1911's, but I've just never really been able to get over the cocked-and-locked issue, but that's just a personal problem. :) I'm much more comfortable carrying DAO and the polymer sure is more comfortable than a full steel carry gun.

well can't help or debate the carrying cocked and locked but personally I am a lot more comfortable carrying with 2 mechanic safeties and 3 built in safeties than carrying with a trigger paddle safety.
and of course there are many different 1911's both in size and weight.
heres a Commander alloy frame and officers alloy frame that are likely lighter than the Glock and certainly more slim.
but everybody has likes and dislikes.

A glock and most other poly pistols are not DAO, basically you are carrying cocked and unlocked but for a little trigger flipper. Just because there is no hammer visible does not mean the kinetic energy to fire the weapon is not already stored in the spring and striker.
