Has anybody actually owned and used one of these, and if so how well did it perform? Not really interested in general opinions of Weatherby guns or the Weatherby look. I've owned enough to make up my own mind about that. I just specifically want to know what luck people had with Regency's?

I'd wanted a Regency since I was a kid, and picked up one today. It's got 26" barrels (which I still like) so I'll have to keep it forever. But it's got a mechanical trigger that works, with good pulls, a selector that works, ejectors that work, a tight lockup, drop dead gorgeous wood and based only on feel really good dimensions.

However, I've owned plenty of guns that seemed just as good and just didn't pan out in actual shooting.

And real cut engraving signed by the engraver.

I'm guessing these were made by Zoli?

I've owned a 12 gauge Regency with 30 inch barrels for trap shooting for many years. After thousands of rounds being fired there have been ZERO issues. Mine is made by Zoli with hand cut and signed engraving. There are,however, portions of the engraving that appear to be stamped into the receiver. Overall, I am more than happy with mine.

Thanks! Looking at the retail prices in period Shooter's Bible's it's easy to see why they weren't more popular. Of all the over & unders cheaper than the Superposed, the Weatherby was the most expensive by $100 at least. That was a lot of money at the time.

At one time, the Bank of Bolder was the largest "dealer" of Weatherby guns. They were usually well made guns, with a little extra finish, nicer wood or just a slightly magnum cartridge. They were never a price point item. Do not know about the current generation but they ones from a decade or more were all solid guns if their looks appealed to your taste.

They were made by Angelo Zoli, not to be confused with Antonio, who is the other Zoli company. Angelo died, but his sons were unable to keep things going.


I prefer wood to plastic, leather to nylon, waxed cotton to Gore-Tex, and split bamboo to graphite.

Thanks Ted,

Yeah, I'm finally back to normal. And, I've also cleared my massive backlog of barrels. I'm reducing the number I accept now to reduce the amount of "hang time" when they are waiting for me to work on them.

Ken61, I’m still waiting for a refund for my two barrels you destroyed with your “refinishing”. Others have contacted me about similar problems. All I’m asking for is the $500 I paid you in advance. The other $3,000 I have in the Parker I’ll have to write off to my education account. I even had to send them to a gunsmith to hone the bores and put them back on face since the acid and rust was everywhere. What a nightmare! And it only took you nearly three years to do it.


It ain't whether you hit a bird that matters, it's the fun you have even if you don't.

I also had a set of barrels "refinished" by Ken61, that he took a year to return them in significantly worse condition than when sent to him. I too would gladly accept a refund.
