    Love that old S&W 645/659 '1911-style' look... especially with the traditional triggers... Anyone still making a pistol like that anymore?...

    The S&W 645 's and 659's aren't 1911's.

    You're correct!... I wasn't really accurate... Meant that '1911' style look... with the old-fashioned triggers!

    Are you asking for M1911s built to the 1911A1s Govt. Service Pistol specifications?

    How about the SA GI-45?

    The S&W 645 's and 659's don't have "old-fashioned" triggers like a 1911.
    In fact, they only started using them in the 1950's when they introduced the first Model 39 DA/SA 9mm made in the U.S..

    You can find pretty much the same trigger design on any number of new DA/SA pistols from various companies today.

    Any 1911 that has a long solid trigger has the look of the original trigger, but a DA semi-auto? Nothing alike...plus the safety is in a terrible place. I refuse to consider any semi-auto with a slide mounted safety.

    I think the OP is looking for a 1911 style pistol with a pivoting trigger and a narrow finger spur (like on the S&Ws that were mentioned or then again, I might not have clue). The Para Ordnance LDA series would have that look.

    Somebody used to make a trigger assembly for 1911s that had a pivoting trigger.

    Before the LDA was the cat's arse, the Seecamp DA 1911 conversion was probably the most well-known double action 1911. Saw one on a Devel Custom one time. Probably the oddest-looking 1911 I've ever seene, with exception to some of Kase Reeder's creations.

    but any DA trigger is CRAP compared to the 1911 SA trigger


    but a DA/DAO/"Safe action" trigger is sloppy and loose compared to any SA trigger

    ETA: Maybe he means thin, single stack autos, like the S&W 4506 (which is just as discontinued as the rest.) In that respect, I can't think of anything that's similar that's not a 1911. Sig 220 isn't overtly thin, and neither is a Ruger.
