The Series 80 have this additional saftey system, Text below borrowed from another site.

The single biggest change to the 1911 design came about in 1983, when Colt introduced the "MK IV Series 80" pistols. These guns incorporated a new firing pin block safety system, where a series of internal levers and a plunger positively blocked the firing pin from moving until the trigger was pressed, thus eliminating the possibility of the gun discharging if dropped onto a hard surface or struck hard.

many manufacturers have incorporated firing pin safties over the years. some, like the colt and some newer auto ordnance pistols use the "series 80" style, wich is engaged by the trigger. others like the kimber use the swartz system, wich is engaged by the grip safety, first used by colt after the war. some time after kahr purchased auto ordnance, they incorpoated the series 80 style safety into the thompson pistols.

thanks andy h. for a prompt reply. if i can put the scratch together i will be in contact.
