They aren't "new" guns...per se!!!

They are ARSENAL/DEPOT built weapons utilizing receivers manufactured during WWI/WWII!!!

The remainder of the components are usually M1911A1 components manufactured during (and post) WWII (although a few parts from WWI show up now & then)!!!

Replacement parts (slides, barrels, springs, etc) were manufactured up into the eighties.
