I agree on the Colts......wouldn't own a Series 80 if ya gave it to me....and no FP block for me either / never. All my Series 70's are from '72 to '75 with a 1918 thrown in. Back then, it wasn't a 45 unless it had a Horse on it, today there are so many model's to choose from ya need to do your research. Most of my accessories, Bo-mar, Behlert, King Custom are now gone but were / are the state of the art workmanship even by today's standards. That's one reason I would look at pre-owned Series 70's in top notch condition and not new....other than that the Springers are affordable......good luck with her, inspect and keep her clean.
