k3 grip

quick question have a k7 with battery grip and looked at it and id say it 99% fits a k3, except for 1 steel pin thats larger,so it stops the k7 grip going on the k3,
any one modded one and if so does it work

I would file the pin (it will still fit the k7 after the mod) , widening an orifice on K3 is riskier...:-)

It has already been done by others. Here is an example i found with a quick search:

D-BG4 grip can work on the K-3. - .

It seems that the pins are a bit different thank on the bg5, so it might not be worth it considering the prices they sell for used (recently bought one for about 60 and it is totally worth it)
