When I search "google.com" for "replica" from the USA , the SERP seems to offers a link to search for replica watches instead of replica guns.

When I search "google.co.uk" it provides the link to search for replica guns.
google.co.uk/search?q=replica

When I perform a USA style search (i.e. "gl=us") at "google.co.uk" it shows the link to search for replica watches instead.
google.co.uk/search?gl=us& ...

When I perform a UK style search at "google.com" it shows the link for the replica guns.
google.com/search?gl=uk&q= ...

Its interesting how google's suggestion vary depending upon location.

Obviously it think guns are appropriate for UK and watches for US!
