G17 Mod question USPSA production

I recently added a 3.5lb trigger with an externally visible trigger stop to my G17. (along with FO sights)

My question is can I shoot this gun in production class or do I have to move to limited because of the mods? I can't find anything in USPSA rule book that prohibits the mods, but I can't find anything that allows them either...

APPENDIX D5 —

Production Division

Holster Restrictions:

— Suitable for everyday use. “Race gun”
type holster prohibited.
— May not be manufactured or cut lower
than, and must cover the slide up to,
½” below the ejection port (belt slide
“Yaqui” type holster exempt).
— Revolver holsters open no lower than
halfway down the cylinder.

Authorized Modifications:

— Internal throating and polishing to
improve accuracy, reliability and
function
— Sights – trimmed, adjusted, replaced,
colored, or fiber-optic.
— Slide – refinishing. Milling of slide –
only as required to insert sights.
— After-market slides and barrels – provided
they are the same length, contour,
and caliber as original factory
standard.
— Grips – Internal beveling. Checkering,
stippling, and addition of grip tape or
grip sleeves. (see Appendix E4)
— Exchange of minor components
(springs, safeties, slide stops, guide
rods).
— Magazines: OEM and aftermarket
base-pads may be used. However, any
and all magazines used in competition
must fit into the USPSA box while
empty and inserted in the handgun as
described in item 7. Grip tape and/or
skate board tape are specifically allowed on magazines and base-pads.

Prohibited Modifications:

— Prototype and Single-Action-Only handguns.
— Disabling of any external safety or externally operated safety.
— External modifications or features such as weights or devices to control or reduce recoil (such as, but not limited to,
thumb rests or components which could be used as such).
— Grips - Any addition or removal of material which changes the factory profile or adds function such as beavertail or
thumb rest.
— External plugs (such as Seattle Slug).
— No magwell attachments or external flaring of the magwell. The lateral width of the well may not be more than 1/4”
wider than the lateral width of the magazine.

Special conditions:

— Handguns with external hammers must be fully decocked at the start signal.
— Unless specifically authorized above, modifications are prohibited. Except for Item 7, revolvers are subject to all restrictions
above.
— A handgun may be approved and added to the USPSA Approved Production Handgun List after the NROI
Manufacturer’s Declaration form stating that a minimum of 2000 complete handguns have been manufactured and available
to the general public has been submitted and NROI has inspected the handgun for compliance.
— Anyone signing up for Production is declaring minor regardless if the ammunition makes major at the chronograph.
Should they be moved to another division, they will shoot minor for the entire match or sub-minor should their ammo
fail to meet the minimum. NOTE: See also June 25, 2009 NROI Interpretations of these rules, at www.USPSA.org

The external trigger stop is a no go because it is a visible modification. The FO sights and lightening the trigger is ok for Production.
