well I wish the 1911 didn't had those white letters


There are three types of a Colt 1911 replica. One is the Tanfoglio Witness 1911 distributed in the US and Canada by Cybergun (middleman) with white markings, the second one is the KMB-76AHN (KWC Colt 1911) distributed by KWC without any markings and the third one is the KWC Model M1911 A1 Tac, distributed by KWC which does not have any white idiot-markings either.
The Sig P226 X-Five and Taurus 92/GSG 92 (Beretta M9) are also either distributed by Cybergun with white markings or by KWC as the KMB-74AHN and KMB-15AHKS, respectively, without any markings.
The pistols distributed by KWC without any markings can be purchased in http://www.surplusig.com or http://www.replicaairguns.com (he has a bit inflated prices).
I read somewhere that the idiot-markings are specifically for the US market for legal liability purposes or something like that. You should also notice that every product distributed by Umarex USA has the markings. The same products sold in Europe have no markings whatsoever.

That would make a lot of sense.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun
