Many and wonderful changes were made to ex-GI pistols when they went on the surplus market after the war. So you might find about anything on a pistol marked U.S. Army Model 1911 or Model 1911A1. That does not mean those features were there to begin with or while the pistol was in service.

There were also similar modifications like that done to M1911's that were used by the Army Marksmanship Unit for target competition.
