Well, then we would have to remove ALL changes for an original, i.e. arched mainspring housings, collet barrel bushings, etc. We couldn't have 1911A1's either.

I do not think the series 80 needed the contraption they put in it, but it's a non issue with me now.
If I had to choose between my 70 and 80 series, I'd sure miss that nice old 70 Colt.

Sorry, no argument here.
Kinda my point. I do agree it wasn't needed, and I would bet it gets phased out.
The main reason people don't like the Series 80 pistol is because of apparent bad triggers, or people can't "tune" these pistols. Not's internet BS.
