One of the most successful options in EAA Corp.'s Girsan lineup of handguns has been its Girsan MC collection of clones based on the popular Beretta 92 series of handguns. In today's marketplace of optic-ready and optic-equipped handguns, the Beretta 92 and its related clones have lagged in compatibility, due to the nature of the gun's slide, but Girsan is joining only a scant few others in offering an optic-ready option in the form of its Regard MC lineup.
Built as an affordable, versatile option, the EAA Corp. Girsan Regard MC is available with the company's Far-Dot red-dot sight, which features a 4-m.o.a. aiming dot and a built-in fiber-optic rear sight on the aluminum housing, which provides an easily visible back-up sighting option that works in concert with the front sight. Like other Beretta models, this pistol is equipped with a bilateral safety selector mounted on the slide, and the mounting location features slide serrations that blend in with traditional cuts located just forward of the selector.
Each Girsan Regard MC is also equipped with a Picatinny accessory rail mounted on the dust cover, and the gun's alloy frame also features finger grooves on the front strap, as well as generously textured polymer grip panels that give the gun a uniform, matte-black look. The Regard MC is chambered in 9 mm Luger, feature double-action/single-action operation and ships with an 18-round magazine. Suggested retail pricing on the new pistol, including the optic, is $638.
