    I love those grips for some unknown reason. Nice addition.

    Edit: that needs the STI short trigger, though. :o

    Neither. Series 70 and 80 is a Colt-specific way of differentiating model generations. It involves some minor internal changes, that escape me at the moment.

    The RIA is an Officer's Model.

    OR
    The RIA is pretty much a 70. The 80's had the extra safety stuff.

    Pretty much all 1911's out there are similar to the mechanism of the Colt 70 series.

    70 Series Colts don't have a firing Pin block. 80 series pistols do. Colt came up with such thing to avoid law suits and provide a ""safer"" product. To the average shooter, there is no difference between firing an 80 series and a 70 series. To guys who know their 1911, they complain that the 80 series has a sloppy trigger. Most advance shooters prefer the 70 series.

    As of right now, only 80 series Colt are allowed to be imported into CA for sell. Pretty much the only difference between the two is the mechanism.
