    Hi and welcome.
    Trying to mod the MK1 is or should be illegal. If you want a custom, build out a MK3.
    The Mk1 is a super pistol as is. Honor your dad and shoot the crap out if. But don't destroy it
    If you don't want the MK1 I have slot in my safe right next to my MK1 :)

    Welcome aboard.
    I can't help but throw out my two cents on leaving the pistol as-is and enjoy shooting it. If a target or match style pistol is absolutely important to you then get a newer production pistol that was designed for all of the goodies to be added. As far as the the year your pistol was made here is a chart that might help. Good luck and have fun.

    Ok, now I see in your post that you already know what year it was made. My eyes and reading ability are going quickly.
