It is illegal. While the ref's don't check every Open Revolver they do have spot inspections. Any S&W revolver, for any match, missing the hammer block will be DQ'ed. I believe you have the opportunity to replace it and have the gun OK'ed, but only if you have not fired a round on that match. I have never felt the need to remove the hammer block. A properly fitted one will not affect the action.
