A Vietnam vintage M1911A1 would have been Parkerized, not blued or painted. Springfield Armory has discontinued their GI, and their so-called Mil-Spec model is anything BUT Mil-Spec -- the sights are wrong and it has slanted cocking serrations.

Other than one of the very rare Colt WW2 replicas (only 2700 made), the one that's going to look the most like the real deal without breaking the bank is the Kahr/Auto-Ordnance GI 1911. The Rock Island isn't "right" -- it has a lowered ejection port, and that ugly RIA billboard on the side of the slide.
