My old gunsmith knew of a couple of instances (I don't recall the case names, but they were real cases) where certain modifications became an issue and the grounds for a civil lawsuit. For example, the removal of the Hi-Power's magazine safety disconnect does two things, it disables the safety so the gun can be fired without the magazine in place and as a bonus it produces a smoother, lighter trigger pull. Although some organizations that have used the HP have done this, it can be twisted to make the civilian gun owner look like he was hoping for a gunfight, especially when the shoot was a questionable one. Also, where there is a case of an accidental shooting, the disabling of a safety feature establishes negligence per se. That is why most of the higher end gunsmiths refuse to make the alteration or if they do, they specify it is for target / competition use.[b said:Quote[/b] (ShipWreck @ Nov. 11 2005,08:20)]no one has ever produced an instance where this DID become an issue. I think if U have a good shoot, U should be okay.
