Also worth a note is besides Colt, Remington, Para, Taurus, SIG, and probably others have used the Series 80 mechanical firing pin safety based off the trigger.

As close as I can come to apples to apples is with two of my Gold Cups, both made in 2015. One is a GCNM MkIV Series 70 with no mechanical firing pin safety and the other a GCT with the Series 80 mechanical firing pin safety. Now if I take out my Lyman digital trigger pull gauge the Series 80 breaks a little heavier but when I shoot them on the same day next to each other with the same ammo and the same way then I get the same size groups with both of them.
