Under the old rules, it was generally accepted that the magazine disconnect was a safety device and couldn't be disabled.
Some information about the new rules is out at the IDPA forum, although the Tiger Teams are not finished with the new rule book.
One of the "issues" already addressed and published is that magazine disconnects (or their removal) falls under "internal/trigger enhancements" for reliability; and therefore will be allowable.
This will make UASC easier for both the shooter and the SO.
If I were going to a sanctioned match and using this gun, I'd go to the IDPA forum website and print out the thread regarding this issue - just in case the MD is not familiar with the current ruling.
