I am new to 1911's and want to know if my Rock Island 1911 tactical is a series 70 or 80. I have looked for parts for this gun and have seen that question come up. Thanks for the help!

There is no firing pin safety

thats a series 70 correct?

I'm kind of new as well but my understanding is no firing pin safety means it's series 70.

IIRC: "series 70" or "80" only references 1911s made by Colt manf company

so when I order parts for my RIA, like say an extractor, does it matter if its a series 70 or 80?

The 80 series will have the notch for the firing pin safety and the 70 will not.
