According to Tisas USA, no one has produced a true replica of the issue M1911A1, but that is going to change with the introduction of their museum-grade 1911A1 replica. The model is made to be an accurate reproduction of the WWII-issued 1911 Remington Rand 1943-1945, in the caliber 45 ACP and a barrel length of 5 inches. Two 7-round magazines and 2 sets of grips including accurate reproduction brown plastic grips, and walnut double diamond checkered grips are included. The MSRP is $479.99.

Tisas USA Introduces Museum-Grade 1911A1 Replica
Knoxville, TN (January, 2024) – Tisas USA, a division of SDS Imports, the internationally recognized firearms manufacturer that provides high quality firearms at unrivaled value is pleased to introduce a museum-grade replica of the M1911A1 as it was issued during the Second World War. Based on a 1943 Remington Rand, the Tisas Armed Services (AS) duplicates the original Type E hammer, correct arched mainspring housing, small window ejection port, and other features specific to the sub-contracted pistols of the day.
“Until now, no one has produced a true replica of the issue M1911A1,” stated SDS/Tisas USA CEO Tim Mulverhill. “Many companies have created ‘GI’ or similarly named models, but none of them were true representations of the original. We set out to create a version that would be hard to tell apart when holding an original in one hand and the Tisas in the other. Until you see the discreet manufacturer information under the dust cover, you can’t tell them apart other than wear and the cruder wartime machining marks of the originals. We even considered adding the flaming Ordnance Bomb proof mark, but there is a fine line between replica and counterfeit, and we felt that would be crossing it.”
The Armed Services features the correct United States Property roll marks, and ships with the correct brown plastic grips. A set of walnut, double diamond checkered grips are also included.
