Changing To Smooth Glock Trigger - USPSA and IDPA Classificaiton

I want to change the trigger on my Glock 19 from the factory ridged to the smooth factory trigger used on the fullsized guns (model 17, 34, etc). However, it looks like this modification will force me into ESP in IDPA since this is an exterior modification and the Glock 19 was never offered in America with this trigger.

However I'm confused where this will put me in USPSA. This trigger is OFM on the Glock 17, which is Production legal and it appears the rules allow for OFM parts from other Production legal guns. Does anyone have clarification or experience how this is has been interpreted in their club?

It isn't like motorsports where every car undergoes an in depth inspection before hitting the track.
If you don't point out the change, who will know?
More importantly, who will care, exactly?
Especially at a local match.
If I'm wrong, you can always change it back.
After many hundreds of matches, no one ever inspected my pistol, other than maybe seeing if it fit the "box" or chronographed major or minor.
My guess is you're worrying over nuttin'.

You should be good to go in USPSA.

They allow extended OFM slide stops and magazine releases which
are standard on G34/35 and 20/21 on G17's that were never offered
with either. Your question is similar.

IDPA? No idea.
