In my opinion any of the SA 1911 models look like the old GI models. Aside from the TRP and compact models! Just bought a SA range officer and it looks just like old GI models just a lil nicer. Stainless steel barrel is only really noticeable difference from a distance.

Yup, I guess just about any 1911 maker has a "GI" model

just something about the classic looks of the wwII era looking 1911! just screams nostalgia. my very first one i bought over twenty years ago, a Springfield Armory Defender 1911 was very similar to the GI or the Mil-Spec models. sure wish i had it back!

I think back on the ones I had & let go & I get a sore leg trying to kick my own butt
I have a old (built in the 70's) Essex build that I left original except I HAD to add better sites - It goes nowhere less I'm with it

When I served in the USN, we carried Colt 1911A1 back in the 80's and 90's. From the shape they were in they were probably WWII left overs. I have a SA Range Officer to remind me of the good ole days.

My grandfathers Colt was made in 1912, and looks like it left the factory yesterday, or at least it used to. My dad has it now, so there's no telling what kind of shape it's in. My sister said he put me in his will for it though, so one day it will be mine.
