    I am not very familiar with that gun, but permit me a few general comments. All pistols that are made for DAO have special features that prevent firing when the firing pin/hammer follows down. Without that, there is a considerable risk of the gun going full auto and emptying the magazine in an uncontrollable burst. Normally, the disconnector prevents this so the firing pin/hammer remains cocked, but on a DAO gun you don't want the gun to remain cocked.

    So what I am saying is that it might be possible, but I would not be inclined to try it without a lot of study. It might also turn out that it simply can't be done safely.
