KJW PT92 vs M9

This is probably going to be a stupid question (thus the noob tank), but is there a difference between a KJW PT92 and KJW's M9(2F) equivalents, and is a KJW "PT92" actually a PT92?

I know on a real Taurus PT92 (at least, from the light reading I've done) is basically just the M9 with the safety moved down to just above the grip, but the KJW PT92s don't have that. The only difference I see between a PT92 and KJW's other M9s is that it says "TAURUS" on the slide.

I've seen a picture from another manufacturer (KSC, I think) that has a PT92 with the safety in the correct position.

So I'm just wondering why KJW markets the PT92, with the safety in the same place as an M9. Is there a PT92 variant where the safety is back where Beretta had them, or something?

This is just something I've been curious about for a while.

I think they only doing this to avoid using the Beretta Trade Mark.

On the KJW's it's just markings/trademarks, and maybe the grip panels are different. Otherwise it's the exact same gun.

There is no difference what so ever the only thing besides what you mentioned is different is iirc the pt92 has a blue bbu while the kjw m9 has a red one. Same thing just different colour. Also the original and I mean original pt92 Taurus made was an exact copy of the 92f safety location and all they only moved it down near the grips on a later production model and it just stuck.

Cool, thanks for the info guys.

Also, sushicake, the BBU on all the KJW M9's that I've had havebeen blue, and I've never seen a red one, so maybe you've got them mixed up. =)
