This is for the S&W 1911 owners are they Series 70 or Series 80?
Series 70 and 80 refer to Colt 1911's.
The series also refers to the type of safety that the 1911 has. A series 70 doesnt have a firing pin block, a series 80 does
If your 1911 has that little round plunger thing, its a series 80
That's my question does the S&W have the plunger thingy (Series 80 like) or like the Series 70 without the plunger thingy
Lock your slide back and look at the underside of the slide, if you dont see the plunger its a series 70..thats the easiest way that you can check
i don't have one... i was hoping an owner would chime in
If you don't hear from an owner here, check out a Smith and Wesson forum, or just send them an email.
*Note: this was written before the release of the E series 1911s.
As I understand it, the E series are "70 series-like" w/ a titanium firing pin.
Hope this helps.
So...Go E series.
All but the "E":
But they all still have that external extractor.
Did someone say Schwartz?
Thank you O'Guru of 1911 that's the answer I was looking for... yep you're right about the EE To bad
