    I just bought this gun at a gun show because it was a low price that i could not pass up. It is an 8 shot and it has a 6 inch barrel. I have tried to do a little bit of research on the gun but I have not been able to find anything helpful. Any information would be great.

    they are usually cheaply made. If yours locks up tight and functions well you should be ok as long as you don't shoot it a lot.

    Retailed by Karl Burgsmuller, a sporting goods distributor located in Kreiensen, Germany, 1955-1970. It is believe the Regent was made by Hermann Weihrauch { Arminius brand guns }. These were decent quality inexpensive firearms imported prior to 1968. Nothing to Bragg about but good for the price. At the time the German mark was undervalued and as a result , for a while they were able to under sell the US guns. It is probably a Arminius HW 3 or 4.
