Will Series 70 grip safety work in series 80?




Just tryin another angle to my earlier post regarding a pachmayr grip safety. I just want to put one on my S&W 1911 and supposedly it is for a "series 70"

unfortunately the answer is no....but series 80 would work in a series 70 colt.
S&W1911 employs a Swartz FP safety. Series70 grip safety would work.

In fact, while I do not own a S&W 1911, I do believe it requires a Series 70 style as the firing pin safety lever rides on top of the arm and is activated that way. The arm of a Series 80 grip safety is thinned so as to allow the Series 80 trigger bar lever room to slip past.

Gentlemen, thanks a million. I didn't realize the S&W was not a Series 80 FPS! Hence, why I ask the experts.
