If you have a Ruger SR1911 would you consider replacing the titanium firing pin with a steel pin?
I saw one post by a gunsmith on a different forum said he did this but I never heard the reason why.

Depending on the gun's set up w/ the MS spring weight, it could be lending to a light strike on the primer.

If you're not getting light strikes on the primer I personally would leave it alone. On a series 70 it supposedly lessens the chance of an AD/ND if you drop your weapon. If a gunsmith reworks the ignition system for a beautiful, wonderful, crisp, light, knock the lights out trigger pull and says he wants it, then by all means do it.
