What netgear router allows wifi region change?

Hi, i'm looking for a netgear router that allows the wifi region change (i live in Italy but i want to set USA). I have a netgear nighthawk R7500 bought in 2015 and it has this option in WiFi menu. Can someone help me to find another newer model? Is there someone between following that have this option? Thanks.

XR500, XR1000, Nighthawk RAX43 (AX4200), Nighthawk RAX50 (AX5400), Nighthawk AX8 RAX70 (AX6600), Nighthawk AX12 RAX200 (AX11000)

(i know about laws limit, but my new house is in countryside without anybody near my house and i need to cover more wifi range outside)

So only a couple regions require the region to be locked. If its bought in the north america region, its locked to that region. EU doesn't lock their regions (as far as I'm aware). So unless that's changed, if you buy it for your Italy region, you should be able to change the region code. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Correct.
