Regarding 1911s without a firing pin block -- many manufacturers have managed to pass California's drop test without using a firing pin block. This is usually done by using a titanium firing pin and a heavier firing pin spring. I have never based my decision on whether to buy a 1911 on whether it had the firing pin block or not. However, none of my favorite 1911s have FP blocks. They also happen to have excellent triggers.
