Yes, but 1911s and 2011s are .... the same gun. They just use different mags/frames/etc. It's like comparing an AK74 to an AK47. Same gun, but it's only got something like 80% parts compatibility with the other.
You mentioned single action for the 1911? Well, the 2011 is also single action. The only DA 1911 is the Para LDA series (to my knowledge). And they patented the design, so it's pretty much exclusive.
EDIT: VZ58's are the shit.
