Would altering your weapon affect your liability in a shooting

Mas,
Back in the day when I was a police officer my department required you to purchase your own firearm,(this was in the 70's and80's). The only thing we were allowed to alter on the firearm were the grips and sights, any internal parts had to remain what they were from the factory, the department claimed this was for liability reason if you were involved in a shooting situation. I know times have changed and I know different department have different regulations. But, could what a person has done to his firearm internally affect the liability in a shooting situation today?

Yes, I'm afraid so. The real problems are with removing safety devices, and lightening trigger pull to below factory spec for "duty" use.

best,
Mas
