    I think you have to look at the "Permitted Modifications", which is an inclusive list. Not on it..not allowed.

    I dont have my rule book handy, but basically it says "No Robar style grip reductions allowed." I beleive this will fall into that.

    I know your pain. I had a tricked out Glock 17 that I did a grip chop and grip reduction on hopeing to use it in IDPA only to find out it wont work. You could use it for USPSA, but you would have to shoot open.

    Man that sucks... I was gonna do a chop on my 45 service that I compete with now... and go back to competing with it with the magazines with sleave...so it would no different than just competing with a 45 compact...oh well.. it's just agrivating that it would be the exact same gun as if i bought the compact, the only difference is springfield making it short instead of me. guess i'll start saving for the compact then.

    Guns with a grip reduction are listed as not legal for SSP but, are fine for ESP and CDP depending upon caliber. The rule book does not mention grip reductions in the CDP or ESP sections.
