    Chris,

    Just a little FYI, Series 80 parts will work in a Series 70, but not the other way around (for the most part, a couple will).

    It can come in handy Chris if you own both the Series 80s and Series 70s type pistols. If I have 80s parts on hand, such as firing pins, extractors etc., I can repair either type 1911, but if I only have Series 70 parts, I can't repair the 80s.

    Chris,

    Your Sistema would be a Series 70 type, so you could use either series parts in it.

    (technically it's a pre-war, pre-70 type, but that's mostly collector jargon to confuse us )

    Thx OD - again!! I am thinking that to all intents the Sistema is just a basic Govt A1, per the pre-war stuff.

    Time I gave that some excercize again methinks!

    You're welcome sir.
    Gov't A1, is exactly it Chris.
    They do need frequent exercise too!
