A comment Brian made about his new Rem 1911 got me to thinkin. He said he preferred the series 70, but the series 80 wasn't a deal breaker for him. That Kimber Covert was the only 1911 I ever owned that had the firing pin block, and I had no trouble with it, but I have decided that from here on out only series 70 for me. Call me petty if you want Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
