simple. i will explain i such a way even the feeble minded may be able to understand. Colt is the original maker of the M1911. simple fact there. everyone else's 1911 is just a copy. another simple fact. Colt was the leading maker of the 1911 for many years and even when there where very few makers who made copies.
who else would they use? hmmm... Glock? or a Luger? or who would they use? simple, Colt. no i haven't spoken to every maker of a 1911 copy, but if you browse their websites, it seems pretty apparent who they are trying to copy, Colt.
personally, i think is more about you trying to start an argument rather than trying to add anything informative to the thread. pretty well apparent is you have nothing constructive to add to this thread by your posting content. have a good night.
