European Armory Corp (EAA Corp) imports the Girsan Regard Gen 4, a Turkish-built semi-automatic pistol chambered for 9 mm. The Florida-based EAA Corp. is importer to many well-regarded firearm designs the world has to offer, including the famed CZ-75 from the Czech Republic.
The U.S. importer’s line of Girsan pistols extends beyond those built from the blueprints of Beretta’s Model 92 clone, like the company’s Regard Gen 4 pistol discussed above. It also brings to the U.S. striker-fired designs along with Browning-inspired M1911 iterations. EAA Corp. doesn’t limit sales to pistols; the company supplies shotguns to Americans designed for myriad tasks, from clay target shooting to hunting and personal defense, all while keeping its consumer’s budget in mind.
Though manufactured in Turkey, Girsan’s Regard Gen 4 has its roots in Italian design. The double-action, single-action pistol is a copy of Beretta’s Model 92, with a few changes. Most noticeable are the gun’s G10 stocks.
A machined vertical cutout in the stocks provides the user with a view of the ammunition stored within the magazine. The G10 material is sculpted to provide solid adhesion to the shooter’s hands. A contoured forged-aluminum front strap helps with additional control of the 9 mm Luger ammunition fired from the 4.9” barrel.
Our testers found the 34-oz. Girsan Regard Gen 4 to provide an enjoyable experience on the range, which was due, in part, to the gun’s 18-round magazine. The aggressive stock panels may be a hindrance to some, so gloves will aid extended range sessions. EAA Corp. does offer MC Regard threaded barrels through its parts store, so those looking to suppress the Gen 4 Regard will have to upgrade.
