    After today, it's all historical.

    Yeah... um... that pictured part is NOT the Series 80 firing pin blocker.
    It's the little plate that retains the firing pin and it's spring in the slide (on ANY 1911 pistol).
    Remove it and the firing pin and spring go "sproing" and fly across the room, never to be seen again.
