Default Military looking 1911s?

what currently made 1911 looks most like the ones made for the military during world war 2?

Springfield's GI.45 1911A1, Auto Ordnance makes one, and I'm sure there are others that make one as well.

Most fullsize entry level or G.I. Models will mimic the looks of the original 1911-A1. Downside is that you may give up some of the desired "upgrades" like a better trigger, hammer and beveled ejection port.

my gunshop told me that Springfield don't make the GI models anymore which really bummed me out because that is the one i wanted most. they told me the closest thing to the GI model was made by Iver Johnson and Rock Island.
