Is there a way to disable that thing? I had the one on my 41 disabled, I wonder if it can be done to the 52....

On rear sight loosen small hex screw and drift sight to the right until the window is exposed.
You will see it.
Remove the little spring and plunger.
Drift sight back to position.
Tighten hex screw.
Done.

Awesome. Thank you!

Since I do not shoot anymore I am glad to help when I can.

One shot at a time.

Greetings,

So now you have removed a factory safety item, what happens if there is an equipment check at a match?

3.2 Any Center Fire Pistol or Revolver - Center-fire pistols
(single shot or semi-automatic)) or revolvers of .32 caliber or larger
(including 7.65 mm and .45 caliber pistols and revolvers); barrel
length, including cylinder, not more than 10 inches; trigger pull
not less than 2 1/2 pounds, except.45 caliber semiautomatic pistols
not less than 3 1/2 pounds. Any Sights, including telescopic, are
permitted with the exception of those sights that project an image
on the target. Open sights may be adjustable but not over 10 inches
apart measured from the apex of the rear sight to the apex of the
front sight. Any sighting device programmed to activate the firing
mechanism is prohibited. All standard safety features of the gun
must operate properly.
Programs may specify particular calibers
of types of center-fire guns that will be permitted or not permitted
in stated event.

Cheers,

Dave

Nra says operational safeties. Mag disconnect isn’t listed as a operation safety. I believe rule 3.7

That's my thought as well. My 41 without magazine disconnect has passed multiple times for EIC as did a MKIII with disconnect disabled.

Hmmm... Interesting!

I have been avoiding certain pistols because I hate magazine disconnects but don't want to violate rule 3.2.  Unfortunately, almost every American .22 pistol made today (Browning Buckmark, Ruger Mk IV, S&W Victory, S&W M41) comes with a magazine "safety".
