European American Armory Corporation (EAA Corp.), has introduced the next generation of Girsan Regard pistols, the Regard Gen 4. Based on the highly popular and reliable original Regard MC pistol, the newest generation of the Regard MC semi-automatic pistol line in 9 mm is built for sport, but is still ideal for everyday defensive carry. The Regard Gen 4 pistol adds even more features that are designed to elevate your performance when it matters the most. Featuring a matte black finish, the pistol is perfectly balanced and ergonomically designed to compliment your skill, be it in target practice, a competition event or everyday carry.

The Regard Gen 4 pistol has a competition-style slide and barrel with deep slide serrations fore and aft and an accessory rail on the frame in front of the trigger guard. The pistol is a traditional single-action/double-action (SA/DA) gun and has a slim competition trigger with a light trigger pull that also has a clean break and fast reset. Sporty and attractive G-10 grips are available in either blue or black and feature a window to view the rounds left in the windowed magazine, as well as grooved finger slots to enhance your control. The pistol has a front-dot dovetail sight and an adjustable low profile two-dot rear sight. The Regard Gen 4 also includes a rebounding decocker system, large slide release, oversized magazine release, thumb rest takedown lever and competition hammer.
