Go to Colt's custom shop and let them know what you want. My Series 70 is pretty much exactly like a GI 1911 apart from the parkerized finish, whereas mine is blued. The sights are the standard crappy GI sights, the hammer bites your hand, and it has a steel mainspring housing with a lanyard loop.
The gun is pretty smooth and the parts are tightly fitted.
