Phoinixbird, I apologize if I offended you. It just seems like a tragic thing to do to a classic pistol. Perhaps you can consider a different pistol that already has a rail in place. There certainly is a bunch of them out there.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
