That is the key. For most there is nothing to be gained, but it opens you to an added element of risk. Any modification that takes a gun outside of the factory recommendations or the industry norms becomes problematic and you need to be prepared to justify the modification. Sometimes that is pretty easy, but many other times it is very questionable.
