Technically, the $600 commercial one could be "the real thing"

(a surplus U.S. military sidearm) as long as one buys it from an able-bodied male at least 17 years of age and under 45 years of age who is or has made a declaration of intention to become a citizen of the United States or a female citizen of the United States who is a member of the National Guard (10 U.S.C. 246). But good luck convincing a subsequent buyer of that.
