In Clawson's big book you will find both the type of steel and an analysis for the Model 1911 on page 209.
On pages 344 and 345 is a list of the steels used in the 1911A1.

Steel today is better since it is fully heat treated. If you are looking for a base gun or a shooter... the old ones are not for you.
