    Eric, It was their field and/or trap models before the Athenas and Orions. The early models were made in Italy and the later models were made in Japan. All models were nicely engraved, cased colored/hardened receivers with most having nicely figured wood. The one thing I don't know about them is if they kick like a mule.

    ec90t,
    The Regency made in Italy are much more desirable than the ones made in Japan.
    The Blue book says the Regency manufactured in Italy commands 15% to 20% more in price.The Field model is worth more than the Regency trap model according to the Blue Book.They are a beautiful gun.To answer Kolordudes' question.My opinion, I don't find it to be a hard kicking gun at all....Philly D

    Steve,
    I had a 12ga. Regency a few years ago in a field gun. recoil was no problem but the gun was too heavy for me to stomp the fields for pheasants with. I have a 6lb. 20ga. Orion in an english stock and a 12ga. Orion. They are made by SKB. I carry one or the other 90% of the time when hunting quail or pheasants. No issues. Great wood and fit and finish. Just thought I would let you know another option. You can shoot either If interested.
    RIP -----Hope to see you soon.

    Thanks Gerry for the offer. It is a funny thing about the Regency, I can't explain why I want one, but I do. I've had several offered at various prices and conditions and I'm leaning toward the nicest for the most money. It is a field grade that looks to be in impeccable condition. Hope to shoot with you someday soon.

    Steve

    Thanks,

    Spcl Trap, I didn't call because of the price. The person was asking a little much for it. But I thank you for your effort.
