That was a very nice post to see the series 80 parts. Is there a plan to post the Series 70? so those of us who don't know the differences can compare.

The only differences is the added safety features that are put on a series 80 pistol.
The pistol can drop as a series 70 and go off. It moving parts are only 4 parts the upper and lowers levers and the firing pin plunger and spring.

You are right they did come with the 3 point collet bushings to save cost. OD thanks for the senor moment I had and forgotten that part.

Not to save cost but to improve lock up of the Barrel like locking it into a Vise

Yes but the correct way would have been the Spherical ring that is used today. Any 3 prong collect from a engineering point of view is weaker then any solid ring

Note the new throat configuration on the barrel on the right. Believe it or not, this new setup actually improves reliability and reduces the chances of case blowout by better supporting the case head. All current-production Colts use this new configuration, including the new Series 70 pistols. An original GI barrel is at the far left, while a normal "throated" barrel is shown in the middle for comparison.
