Hello I am having a problem with my safeties on my Colt MK IV series 80 pistol.
The safety lock when in the on position will sometimes hold the hammer from falling, sometimes it will stop the hammer at the half cock, and sometimes it will not hold at all. I have also spotted that it will at times shove the safety lock out a bit from the frame. I have talked to a guy that did help me some but had not come across this problem before, we think that it may be just worn parts and I need to do some replacing of the parts. Has anyone come across this problem before? If you have was it just warn parts and which parts did you replace to fix the problem? The grip safety also will not keep the hammer from falling. Any assistance you can offer would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have more than a simple problem.

When you've got the hammer falling all the way, a safety getting shoved out of the frame, and a grip safety not functioning at all, there's something radically wrong.

I strongly suggest having a competent pistolsmith look at this one.

These are MAJOR safety issues.
