Florida-based firearm importer, European American Armory Corporation (EAA Corp.) has announced a fourth model of its Regard series of semi-automatics pistols. The new Girsan Regard Gen 4 is double-action/single-action pistol chambered for 9 mm Luger brought to U.S. shores from in Turkey and based on Beretta’s storied Model 92.
The Girsan Regard Gen 4 includes an open-top slide, which is the the key update to this latest iteration from EAA Corp. In addition to the wide, rear cocking serrations, wide-cuts have been added to the front portion of slide for press checks and other manipulations. The slide is topped with dovetail sights—a low-profile, two-dot rear follows a post front with a single white dot.
Upgrades to the controls of EAA’s latest Regard add to the function and handling shooters will experience when on the range—the magazine release has been enlarged as well as the gun’s slide stop. Attached to the slide just below the rear sight is a rebounding decocking system that is bilateral for strong or weak handed operation. Knurling on the gun’s skeletonized hammer was also added.
Putting rounds on target is aided by the addition of serrations on the trigger’s guard, recessed finger grooves within the frontstrap and vertical serrations along the backstrap. Additionally, EAA Corp. provides stock panels that have been machined from blue or gray G10 and are designed to promote a shooter’s grip. The panels also feature clear windows in each side to view magazine round count.
Finished in matte-black, the Regard Gen 4 weighs in at 34.4 ozs., includes a 4.9” barrel and uses an 18-round detachable box magazine. An accessory rail is also included. Suggested retail pricing for the EAA Corp. Girsan Regard Gen 4 is $510.
