FWIW, I tend to remove all the "Series Stupid" (as one gunsmith I know calls them) bits out of my later Colts.

I suppose it makes them more liable to discharge should I ever drop them from seven feet in the air in such a manner that they land muzzle first on concrete. Just in case I ever take up that habit, I've saved the parts so's I can reinstall them...

Could you elaborate? Do you mean the Series 80 firing pin block? And if so, what liability does the 80 firing pin block pose?

None; it's just an extra bunch of fiddly bits I don't want to deal with when detail-stripping the pistol, so I relocate the parts to a small ziploc bag which makes teardown and reassembly a hojillion times more convenient.
