    As indicated above Auto Ordnance is the closest clone, I put mine next to my DCM (1963) Colt and From a couple of feet away it is hard to tell which is which.....and it does not say “Made in Philippines” any where on it.

    Had one of the GI Springers, unhappily traded it on a G43, of all things.
    Mine looked a lot like a '43 Remington Rand, except for the poly grips. Found GI grips online and solved that problem.

    Copied this from a post I made on a similar thread (modified a bit). I have about $600 in this Auto Ordnance parkerized model. Purchased used but in very good condition & not fired much. Added a USGI stamped trigger, replaced magazine with USGI magazine, USGI mainspring housing w/ lanyard loop. It does have a slight bevel in the magazine well and is Series 80 instead of 70, but you can’t always get what you want.

    Now I have a GI 1911A1 clone that I’m not afraid to shoot a bunch. Complete with tiny sights that old guys like me that actually used them can’t see very well any more.

    Owned a Cimarron high polish once. Liked it. Shot well. The thing I didn’t like most was that in order to remove the the slight magazine bevel, they just ground off the bottom of the grip frame, instead of making a casting that didn’t have the bevel in the first place. Sold it.
