Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but some updates on this would be great! Anyone doing this long term notice any long term effects?

Pentax k3 using old grip of k5/k7 BG-4

Thanks for the advice !! I thought of it too. I just removed the metal plate and worked like a charm. And its a 3rd party grip also soo not Only i saved money with it but I was able to re-use it with my new camera

So this mod will work on the K3II I imagine. Wonder if one can order a spare BG5 top plate & the just switch it out with the BG4
