Being that someone has already swapped sights I say go for it.

I put over 3,000 RDS through mine in the short time I had it, and the owner prior had over 1,000 just in Leo qualifying so I see no problem with shooting it. I'd probably say an aftermarket barrel and no +p ammo to try and preserve what's there. But that's strictly my opinion.

Extractor swapping isn't a big deal. In my opinion its just the serial numbered parts and the mag that are the important features. I'm jus like you and FAR from being a collector (I gave away a 000 serial number g36 in a drawing). I personally get lot more enjoyment out of shooting my guns. And if this isn't your primary I see nothing wrong with shooting it.

Love it and use it for what its meant for! Maybe be a little more thorough with cleanings and inspections being that I personally had some issues with mine.

We definitely need pictures. If only someone (Sig fiend) would post a video of shooting one people would realize these are still functional firearms.

Oh I'll definitely get some video too. Video was one of the reasons I wanted to get a decent DSLR.

Always makes me shake my head... DSLR for video.

So aside from rarity, is there any other reason this pistol is special - seems pretty boring to me.

I know not many people have one of these, so the least I can do is to at least do something with it to put some more content out there on the web about them.

I don't know if it will effect performance but Apex extractors
are for 15 degree extractor slides as compared to 90 degree of early Glocks.

Nope! It's just an old gun that was born out of a man's need for a smaller gun...

And I was there with Butch! We had lunch after checking out the Glock Collectors Association booth. Butch is every bit as heckuva nice guy in person, as here on GT!!
