KWA m1911 barrel?

So I'm new to airsoft and really want an authentic looking m1911, more as a show piece than for gaming at the moment. So in my findings I came across the KWA 1911 MK II PTP. Now this gun is almost exactly what i want in a show piece, no tinted lower receiver and full metal body (although ive read the outer barrel is made from a strong polymer plastic). My only gripe is the orange tip being non removable. Now there is a way around it but it would involve me having to import a metal outer barrel made from KWA for the gun. Having read the importing post I was still left with some confusion on the matter of hangun barrel lengths. Keep in mind that I have no intention of running down the street and waving my gun in the air like a moron. It's gonna be sitting nicely on top of my desk. So my question is, what is an illegal barrel for airsoft handguns? The new barrel has no orange tip and is a bit shorter than the stock one.

P.s: unless i find a canadian retailer who carries the barrel for the gun i might have to import or give up with this gun :/

It's painted on. Use paint thinner or paint it black. Done.

True, and ill consider it, i would still like the metal barrel as it adds to the realism. Any knowledge as to the barrel length issue?

Airsoft is not defined by barrel lengths but the FPS of the gun.
