Valid point.

The 1911 platform has been around long enough where it seems natural that variants and tweeks have been introduced.

Personally, I don't mind the upgrades in pursuit of perfection as long as I am respectful to the original platform which has been battle-proven for many, many years.

I have a bigger problem seeing this platform in any other caliber other than .45acp.

Everyone should at least experience a full-size 1911 in .45acp.

It sounds like you think the internal firing pin safety is an advantage. Explain. I want a springer and not a series 80 for this reason. Im under the impression that springers don't have a firing pin safety unlike the series 80. Correct me if im wrong.

I don't think that the internal firing pin safety is an advantage at all. The gun already has two other safeties: thumb and grip. However, I don't think that it's a disadvantage either. It's a non-issue for me.

Springfields don't have firing pin safety.

I thought the main purpose of the series 80 safety was that it became drop safe with it?
