P89 mods

I'm thinking about picking up another P89. Can anyone list "All" the modifications I do to it.

Is there any way to delete the safety?

Thanks
Mike

No saftey...get a decock only model.

Other mods...Houge Grips, new sights, Wolfe Springs. If you want more than that, your going to need to get out the check book and take it to a gun smith.

Hard to tell from that side if it's "decock only"; the differences are most notable on the other side of the slide (BTW: the lever on the safety model also acts as a decocker). Here's a photo that shows the three different configurations: http://world.guns.ru/handguns/ruger_p_controls.jpg

FWIW: my similar P90DC (decock only) is setup as Johngoboom suggests (in my case Uncle Mike's grips, night sights and Wolffe springs)

I'm wanting to do some upgrades on my P89 also. Any suggestions on recoil spring, and hammer spring? Already have the Hogue grips, still undecided on the sights, possible CTC for it. Precision Sales International makes adjustable sights for the 89, but right now i want to play around with spring rates. As you know the first pull is a bear. What can I expect with a lighter recoil spring? Etc, etc,etc.
