Goofy Kimber ski jump rear sight, long trigger, full length recoil spring guide, and front cooling fins (only a fool would put his fingers that close to the muzzle to move the slide).
But these are styling gimmicks. Performs just fine as a M1911. I have one 'cuz the price was right.

I believe KWA has/had/will have a "real" M1911 replica but the Mark-series is good place to start. No one I know carries a USGI-type M1911, but many of us carry the modernized version with the beaver tail grip safety, larger and ambdextrous safety lock, and decent sights. The mark series has all these. Two versions have a rail. Take your choice.
Springfield Armory is a commercial manufaturer in Springfield, Illinois, not the former USG arsenal by the same name in MA. They make an excellent full series of M1911 pistols running from their USGI M1911A1 reproduction to full custom shop versions bumping the $3000 price range.
