    I bought a Regent 1911 A1 on impulse recently and it cost $450. It was a great shooter straight out of the box and compares favorably with my Colt and Kimber pistols as regards accuracy.

    Had too look up what RIA stood for. But this guy kinda tells what he thinks of them. Gives a pretty good report.
    Seems to be doing good in the poll.
    Claims he tested lots of ammo with no problems. Price sounds fair enough.

    There was a write up in sgn for the 10mm witness match not too long ago. The only 2 bad things they had to say were the weight (33 oz in 10mm IIRC) which its a match gun and not a ccw gun so who cares. The second was the 10mm federal was loaded longer than other rounds and wouldn't allow 1-2 rounds into the mags.

    my 10mm was that way with the mags-- damn bear-trap springs in the mags but after a few hundred rounds they will wear enough to let those last rounds in the mag.

    my witness match 10mm was under sprung for the full 10mm load as well. ironically the factory spring is perfect for the 40sw barrel!--

    most 10mm ammo you buy these days is watered down to something to 40s&w P+ anyway. but my hand-loads are close to the magnum level so i needed a wolf extra power spring for mine. damn 10mm properly loaded is 15 rounds of "HAND-CANNON"!lol!

    the 45ACP match guns need nothing in the way of tuning and will run perfecto out of the box i am told.

    the match is one hell of a pistol in any cal for around $5bills IMHO course a "hunter" would be even better but it is high--$$$!

    on their site they only show the 8round 1911s.

    CFS has the 14rd versions for $450 and buds has them for $470 shipped.

    i might wait till next year to buy a 1911 pistol because--the 1911 will be 100 years old in 2011!
