    They use the firing pin block like in the Colt Series 80 but they have left it off of the newest models and as I understand it they are going to be changing all future production to the series 70 style

    That's good news that they are ditching the stupid firing pin block.

    I wish others would follow suit. I believe colt is moving away form the series 80 firing mechanism
