The unique characteristic of the Colt Series 70 was the collet (spring) barrel bushing. The main characteristic of the Series 80 was the firing pin safety. In current 1911 clones, the collet bushing has been dropped but the firing pin safety generally lives on.
If we're talking about the RIA gun made in the Philippines by Armscor, it is neither a Series 70 nor a Series 80, but follows the original design. All GI parts should be a drop-in fit, with possibly minor adjustments. (I used two RIA frames to build close copies of WWII guns.) On the other hand, the "GI" gun made by Kahr Arms / Auto Ordnance (also a close lookalike) is a Series 80 with the firing pin safety. The firing pin safety parts in a Kahr can be removed and replaced by standard GI parts, but you have to use a special filler piece in the frame cutout.
