    Thats what I was wondering. Their GI is under 500 so this MAY be a fairly good buy. Don't care for the FCS but the gun looks nice.

    The Regent is made in Turkey, Turkey is a muslim country.
    No way in hell will I knowingly support a muslim country.

    I agree. The Regent is off my list.

    I have a couple Turkish guns, including the R100 and guns from all over the world, to be honest.

    I hear what you're saying, but I feel Regent makes a solid 1911. I will probably pick up the new one at some point to.

    I actually just read your review in the sticky about it. Seems like a great choice for the price.

    Maybe you shouldn't worry about what I do, quite frankly. :dunno:

    I'll pick up the next model at some point too. I like to have a diverse collection. :)

    On some sort of philosophical basis? Your avatar has a pic of a Sig. The Germans killed a hell of a lot more people than Muslims have. You buy what you want, but giving others grief about something like that is just dumb.

    No problem.

    I just don't think of Turkey when I think 9-11.

    Don't know if all of them want us dead or not. But did you ever notice how China and Russia allways support them. If you won't buy this gun then I suggest that you not ever buy any cheap article of clothing from Wal-mart, Kolhs, K-mart, or any other place in America. The whole world is against us just look at the U.N. vote on almost any issue. Buy what you want no matter where it was made as Americans are still the people importing things and selling it so it still provides jobs. I am not for the importation of our jobs overseas by any mean, just a redneck American trying to enjoy life and take care of my family. Believe me when I say if I voiced my true feelings this thread would be shut down.:whistling:

    If it weren't for the Moros (Phillipine Muslims) and their apparent ability to brush off multiple .38 caliber rounds, we may not even know of the 1911.

    History lesson aside, I'm not a proponent of Islam in any way. But part of what makes America great is that we have the right to choose whatever damn product we want, and we have the right to voice our opinion and argue about it all we want. God bless America.
