The original hi power as designed by browning had an internal extractor. Later was changed to external.

Means nothing to me. Mine has an internal, but that wasn't the deciding factor anyway.
I have a lowered and flared ejection port. THAT'S not in the original design.

Quite honestly the last gun I sold I regretted doing so.Lesson learned so I strongly doubt I will sell any others down the road.

Of those two? Colt for sure. Used, u may be able to score a deal on something better than the colt for around the same price. Just something to consider.

any 1911 with a Series 80 safety mechanism would not be considered a 1911.
Colt most certainly included!

I just mean that you can't pick one particular design change and say that is the reason it's not a 1911. Internal or external, the gun still operates the same way.

Not the case with the Series 80. I can think of at least 3, maybe 4 new parts that were added because of that change. That's a pretty significant design change compared to an external extractor, not to mention it changed the operation of the gun slightly.

I just see to many people get hung up on the external extractors while Colt and others tend to get a pass on the Series 80 safety. And throwing around incorrect comments about what is supposedly not a "real" 1911 is something that needs to be corrected. We don't want to be spreading misinformation on here if we can help it.

I'm a huge sig fan. But when it comes to a 1911. You just can't call anything that isn't made in America a 1911.
