biggest one is your not going to find a smith willing to disable a safety feature on a carry gun.
two it needs a special piece made to remedy the issue. im pretty good at work arounds and mods
reason being is the mag safety spring is also the transfer bar spring. its a really elegant design. on the thunder the safety is a totally seperate piece you can just remove and toss. i suppose they did it that way to remedy a design issue with the thunder safety. on the thunder the safety stresses the transfer bar spring a lot which can lead to the spring breaking on earlier models. they changed the spring metal on current models so it doesnt occur.
removing the safety bar on the thunder removes the excess stress.
on the plus if you remove the spring the gun wont work.
