Don't know why anyone would want a DA 1911 but someone must??

Here's a FS 5" DA from Colt, the model O1991DA;

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I don't know why, but looking at that just made me cringe

Try a S&W 645, it's sort of like a Beretta 92 in 45 ACP caliber.

SA/DA, decocker.

Saying you love a Single Action 1911 is kind of like saying you love your little miniature poodles

If you have to have a D/A in a .45acp The HK USP Compact is a really good choice. It also comes in .40S&W I have both they have both never failed in any way.
