I can't realy feel any difference betwen these 2 (TW and BW) they give the same feeling in the hand's and are accurate enough to have fun :roll: :) :lol: :rolleyes: :twisted: ... :tonqe:

I do notice a slight difference between my Witness and Blackwater notwithstanding the different grips I also notice a different feel to the recoil. TW clanks and the BW thunks. Love them both though.

I was browsing www.camouflage.ca and came across this. Looks similar but there are some differences, anyone know if this is made by a different company? It is only $65.

Most definitely this is not the same gun. If I'm not mistaken the Tanfoglio Wintness is a ™ held by Cybergun, whose manufacturer is KWC. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a knock-off (and a poor one) made in China.

Spend the extra $30 and buy the real thing for an incredible price. Were I in the collecting business, I'd buy 10 of them at that price and put them away. I'm not in that business and I have four of them, only one of which is in original condition. With those and most of the other variations, I have nine 1911s, and I still shudder at the thought of passing on this deal.

Newbies: a 1911 BB shooter on your list? Buy this one now. It's the one and only original, it's as close to the real thing as you are ever going to see, and the price is, indeed, ridiculous compared to what most of us paid for it. It will never go out of style.
