Colt ships their Series 70s with the series 80 extractors. That way, they only need one type, not two. A money savings move.

I have two, they are great, no problems, I did change out the dual springs, and put in lighter hammers springs too. You will love it. No recoil, accurate and cheap to shoot in 9mm.
