Yes, these modifications only eliminate a few millimeters of trigger travel, that's true. So what?
My mod cost a total of 5 bucks, and that includes the cost of the tap and the drill bit. For five dollars, you aren't going to get electro-frame performance.
Like I said up top, for me it was also about the mushy finish on the trigger. That, and the fun of messing around with my toys (including my drill press).
No point? That's a matter of personal preference.
If you want a half-millimeter of trigger throw, by all means, go get one of the many wonderful electro-conversions on the market. For those of us with less coin (or an affection for purely mechanical solutions), there are trigger mods.
