Why do you want to do that? You may destroy the WR feature of the grip. The D-BG5 is not a big investment compared to the K3 price.

In fact the depreciation of the grip is a lot less than the camera.

The DGB4 sells for about $150 used compared to $200 new. (25% depreciation )

While a K5 used to be over $1000 now you can find one in $400+ range (50% depreciation)

I always had a battery grip with my DSLRs D-BG2 for my K10D and K20D and the D-BG4 for my K7 and now my K5.

That is my opinion.
