Colt series 80, or mk. iv series 80, are a line of firearms introduced in 1983 by Colt’s Manufacturing Company. The main difference between this guns and the previous Colt series 70 is that the former incorporate a new firing pin block safety system, consisting of a series of internal levers and a plunger positively blocking the firing pin from moving until the trigger is pressed, hence eliminating the possibility of the gun going of if dropped onto a hard surface or struck hard. The Colt 1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, and recoil-operated handgun chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. The Colt series 80 was designed by John M. Browning and is still carried by some U.S. forces. It had widespread use during World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Currently, several law enforcing agencies and military organizations still use the colt 1911, such as the Marine Corps Special Operations Command, Los Angeles Police Department S.W.A.T. and L.A.P.D. S.I.S., the FBI Hostage Rescue Team, F.B.I. regional S.W.A.T. teams, and 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment—Delta and The Tacoma, Washington Police Department, in the United States alone. Other countries which have also used it at one point or another include Argentina, Bangladesh, Bolivia, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Fiji, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Indonesia, Liberia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Spain, and others.
