      Although this is specific to semi auto distinguished, I think it also bears true for revolvers.

      ISSUE: Trigger Stops are prohibited on pistols used in Police Pistol Combat
      Distinguished Semi-Automatic Matches. On a pistol equipped with
      a Trigger Stop from the factory that is otherwise eligible, can the
      Trigger Stop simply be removed to make the pistol eligible ? An
      example is the Tanfoglio Gold Match pistol made by Fratelli
      Tanfoglio of Italy and maketed worldwide.
      FINDING: Since the Trigger Stop is part of the standard factory catalog item
      features for the pistol, removing it from the trigger would be making
      an External Modification. External Modifications are prohibited by
      Rule Section 3.1 that states that “Any external modifications, except
      those allowed within each rule.” is prohibited. Section 3.7, covering
      Distinguished Semi-Automatic Pistols, makes no such exception.
      However, Section 3.7 does allow “Any accessories, parts, and
      components which are manufactured to duplicate, in materials
      and dimensions, the original as offered by the manufacturer.” If
      Tanfoglio, or another company, makes the same trigger without
      the Trigger Stop and mounting hole and it is “manufactured to
      duplicate, in materials and dimensions, the original as offered by
      the manufacturer” the original trigger with the Trigger Stop could
      be replaced with the non-Trigger Stop version trigger.
      APPLICABLE RULE: Rule 3.1 governing ALL firearms, and Rule 3.7 governing
      Distinguished Semi-Automatic Pistols, of the 2011 Edition of the
      NRA Police Pistol Combat Rule Book.
      3.1 All Firearms: With respect to Sections 3.2 through 3.9 and in addition to the firearm specific
      regulations below, the following features are either allowed or prohibited on all of the firearms
      1. Sight blackening.
      2. Fixed or adjustable sights.
      3. Action work to make a crisper and/or smoother trigger pull.
      4. Stocks may be modified or changed because of the size of a competitor’s hand or to facilitate
      Number 11-4
      Rule 3.7 & 3.1
