1911 - 70's vs 80"s trigger system
« on: November 09, 2014, 07:56:25 AM »
Does anyone own a 1911 with the 70's series trigger system?  I have owned two 1911's and currently have a Remington R1 with the 80's series trigger system which has the firing pin safety block.  I think most 1911's produced today have this firing pin block arrangement.  However, many 1911 enthusiasts claim that the 70's series trigger (without the firing pin safety block) is a lighter and smoother trigger.  Can anyone here verify this claim?  Any opinions on the two different trigger systems?
