Where is a mod when you need one. LOL This thread is so far off topic.
In my experience the Colts 80 series firing pin safety is a solid design and is reliable. Does that mean it cannot fail? NO but is is likely to? NO!
I have guns which have the 80 series parts and some that do not. I trust all of them to go bang when I need them to. YMMV.
