I asked this is the scoring\rules section without answer so maybe Ill have better luck here?

After reading the rules, I have a question that does not seem to be specifically addressed. For a handguns in either of the tactical (optic or limited) divisions, what (if any) external modifications are allowed?

Specifically, are grip mods allowed? As an example, here is my G19, would it be legal?



If not, what specific aspect of it makes it non-compliant keeping in mind there are 3 seperate mods done to this pistol.

1. Finger groove humps removed
2. Backstrap flattened
3. Entire grip stippled

Now personally I think it should all be legal because everything done to it is similar in nature to what can be done with a 1911 and I've never seen things like MSH, checkering or grips specified for the 1911 but be that as it may, I know this gun wouldn't be legal in some other comps such as GSSF. So what's the 3G take on it?

What about extended mag wells?

You can modify your guns just about anyway you want in 3 gun as long as they are safe. Here is my Accurate Iron built G34...

A general rule of thumb is to go by the USPSA limited pistol rules.

This is your tac ops gun? Still trying to feel out what's allowed in tac ops/irons for pistols. If I remember correctly (assisted by a google search) then outside of compensators, barrel porting, adding weights, and optics everything else is good for limited. Are there any additional rules that you can think of, off the top of your head that throw a pistol into open for most 3 gun matches? I'm moving away from XD and Beretta and would like to build a competition focused gun. Thanks, and thanks for being active on the boards. Without a doubt its the best thing about shooting sports especially one where you must bring more than a couple guns to a match.

Are flared magwells legal? I read that they arent in tactical.

Generally for the outlaw matches when shooting tac optics or tac irons a "limited" pistol is good to go. That includes an extended flared magwell. I shoot tac op and have a magwell as do most who run 2011s glocks mps, etc etc.
