why removed? This is a saftey issue. For a range toy probably not a big deal but for ccw it would not be safe

Good grief. Not all guns from any manufacture have firing pin blocks. Please find another hobby.
And you have no idea why it wasn't included.

It wasn't made to compete against anything. You're either ignorant or simply pugnacious. My 1911 is a great CCW piece now isnt it?

The 1911 saftey blocks the hammer directly so no chance of it going off. The ruger 57 can discharge even with the thumb saftey activated. You are obviously stupid sorry

I will say it again. The 1911 has a thumb safety that.cannot be bypassed and it blocks hammer even if dropped. The ruger 57 even with thumb saftey on the hammer can still drop.

Let's start by knocking off the nasty comments. This is supposed to be a friendly forum!

In case people aren't aware, back in March 14, 2004, the Small Arms and Ammunition Institute (SAAMI) approved "Drop Test" standards for all US gun manufacturers that spells out test procedures. The first test is for all guns and it involves dropping a cocked gun, loaded with a primer only cartridge and it's manual safety in the "SAFE" position.

The next test is for all guns and it involves dropping a cocked gun loaded with a primer only cartridge and it's manual safety (if so equipped) in the "FIRE" position.

The last test is for long guns only and involves a cocked rifle or shotgun falling over from leaning against an object.

Although SAAMI standards are "optional", virtually all US manufacturers comply with them to uphold safety standards. Ruger is one of the voting members on the SAAMI board so all guns made by them comply with these standards. Here's a link for the "drop test" standards.
https://saami.org/wp-content/uploads...-3-14-2016.pdf

Just a comment about 1911s …. There are several different designs that comply with SAAMI standards to include the Colt Series 80 designed firing pin block actuated by the trigger, the Kimber designed firing pin block actuated by the grip safety, and the Ruger design which is a combination of a heavy firing pin spring and a light titanium firing pin. There may be even more that I'm not aware of. All of these designs exceed SAAMI safety standards and similar standards implemented by California. Point being …. just because a gun doesn't have a firing pin block, it doesn't mean they aren't safe or don't pass SAAMI standards.

The bald toothless guy in the video isn't too swift and doesn't know the difference between a "transfer bar" and a "trigger bar". When a little Gremlin can get inside the gun with a tool to release the sear, I'll start worrying.
