Anyone heard of the IAC Norinco Regent 1911?




Found this looking for a Norc.

Internet scuttlebutt is that Norinco outsourced to Tisaş in Turkey as en "end run" around the gun ban. Here's the gun on Tisaş's website:

I'm waiting on more feedback from members of this forum and others, but so far what few I've seen are positive. I see the company has other handguns so perhaps the quaility will be even better than Norinco? I hope so for the sake of others looking for a good 1911 at a good price. If the quaility is as equal to my Norinco then it will be worth the money they are listed for on GunBroker. I hope they begin to offer the Regent with better sights and safties.

I SOG took my dough, so I suppose I should have on in a couple of days B'H.

I'm a fan of Turkiche Fabrik. They make great pots and pans, tremendous ceramics why not 1911's

( The made in Turkey quality list includes: M-2000 shotguns _ benelli copies_ Stoeger Cougars _ beretta Copies, Hastan Arms, etc. )

I like $419. Is it made out of 5100 Steel like a Norc? Why the reference to Norcs?

Regent 1911

REGENT 1911 is manufactured by TISAS for an American Company, not for Norinco.

Update picked up the pistol yesterday... gun shop actually received it monday, I called to find out what was up...got around to telling the Mrs. today.

It a nice looking piece, definitely a cast frame...some very very slight casting imperfections only on one place.

Steel seems well heat treated.

Barrel appears to be STAINLESS...it makes easy wear marks just like stainless, and looks like stainless /Inox . I cannot detect a chrome lining.

Rifling is a shallow 6 grove affair.

Bushing seems tight. Not too much slop with the rails, but it's not tight either...some rattle when you shake it gripped as if you were to shoot.

Comes with ONE mec-gar mag in bright blue, the gun itself is Blackened.

Can't wait to actually SHOOT it. Hopefully this sunday.

Range report:

100 230 grain WWB. Zero malfunctions. Used the mec-gar mag supplied and 2 7 round metalforms.

at 25 yards gun shot high and to the left, could use some rear sight adjustment, all shots hit the target even in rapid fire, using a 50 yard rifle target supplied by the range. Trigger was a bit mushy...grouped OK.



Not bad for a budget .45. keep in mind FN casts all their 900 dollar high powers...

I can recommend it to those who don't care if it's not 100% G.I. Spec. ( stainless vs. chromed barrel etc.)

UNCLE IZZY,

Thank you very much for your report. I'm kinda' disappointed since I was hoping for a 5100 series forged steel 1911 (like the original Norinco's). Not saying anything negative at all about your Regent.

Nothing wrong with a cast frame, I'm just partial to forged in a 1911, that's all.

When the scammers came out with that " Norinco" line I think it let all of us down....it's a poor introduction to a decent pistol.

I searched for a week and got contradictory information...so I plunged into it expecting 80% chance it will be cast and 100% sure it's not a norc.

Hopefully others using dogpile, yahoo, google etc. will find this thread and make an informed purchase.

Yes, I too had hoped for a Norinco like the ones that use to come into the country. I guess the next time I see a real Norinco I'll have to think twice about not buying one.

one other thing to add.

the front rails seem to have some metal that was not cut off just right ( you can feel it with your finger nail) and so it left skid marks on the top of the frame rails. a needle file set might come in handy...or a stone sized for this... ( but I don't feel like dumping money into this so a cheapie needle file will do..)


that and the STAINLESS barrel is all I have against this gun. SOG , RRArms, IAC should correct the ad which everyone copies saying its a chrome barrel ( unless they "really meant" the chromium in the stainless steel)

"These new Regent 1911-A1 pistols have a hammer forged 5" Barrel, chrome, mil-spec with black finish, and 7rd capacity. "

https://www.southernohiogun.com/inde...cp-pistol.html

( they sell them for 400 to a dealer BTW)

If I had to do it over again I might go with a IMBEL ( outsourced-field) " G.I." and also be ready to do some work on it...

Uncle Izzy,

I just wanted to say I am very impressed and very grateful for your honest, unbiased, appraisal. I don't think many folks would have been as up front as you were.

Hey, if it's a good shooter, that makes it OK. You answered "the" question many of us had, and I really appreciate it

Lucky you got it for so cheap. Handguns in Turkey are very pricey thanks to their scumbag pro-islamic corrupt govt. I think they're trying to ban them altogether at the moment.

would not surprise me if either the islamists or the secularists wanted to control the population in turkey.

I've been to turkey twice now...one time for 3 weeks...drooled at the gunshops because at the time I was in Israel where private guns are even more tightly restricted.

If you live in the USA and have a gunshop that let's you order, just go on SOG's site and put it in your shopping cart...I used a credit card and shipping together was 422 + my ffl for 25 = a grand total of 447 USD.

New Toy

I am new to this site. I just bought a new IAC Regent 1911. Cost was $465 out the door. From what you all have said about it it seems to be a pretty nice .45. Have not been able to shoot it yet but will in the next couple days. Anyone have any good mod's to there's?

Turkish Pistols

I recently purchased a Tisas made pistol 9 mm from American Tactical Imports, and it is the finest 9 mm I have shot. Better, than glock, s & w, and the ruger that I own. It comes with a ported barrel and is" glock like" over a steel frame. They make great guns.
