Adam Blalock, President and CEO of Umarex USA said, "The strong success of the Regent R100 illustrates that the consumer is looking for a high-quality, value driven 1911. The quality of the Regent is unparalleled in the market for its retail price point, and in 2012, we are adding two additional Regent handguns that offer outstanding features normally found in much higher priced models. Combining quality with affordable retail prices, consumers will clearly recognize the value of both the Regent R200S and R350CR."

The new R200S is a stainless version of Umarex USA's Regent R100S 1911 A1 style handgun. The R200S is already shipping with Hogue grips installed and factory standard customized features such as a beavertail grip safety, ambidextrous thumb safety, commander-style hammer, and skeleton trigger. This Regent stainless retails for under $600.

The R350CR is expected to ship this spring. This compact variant of the 1911 has a four-inch barrel and is equipped with a rail, beavertail grip safety, ambidextrous thumb safety, commander-style hammer, skeleton trigger, and a checkered front strap. Also shipped with Hogue grips, the Regent R350CR is expected to retail for under $550.
