Questions about the Springfield Mil-spec

I have been wanting to get a Springfield Armory Mil-Spec but have been wondering about the titanium firing pin that they use to meet the California requirements. I believe they use a firing pin from a 38 super in the 45acp made from titanium to help meet the drop test for the state of California.
Can this firing pin be replaced with a "normal" firing pin?
Can you replace it with a firing pin from a 45acp?
I am imagining that the firing pin hole in the breech face is fit for the 38 super firing pin and one from a 45 probably wouldn't fit through the hole.
I just do not like this change from the norm just to satisfy the state of California.
Anyone know about this?
