I've recently built up the left-hand grip of my 1911 to assist me with recoil control.

* The gun does fit in the box as is *

Is this a permitted modification? I believe it is, but I would like some confirmation. I'm assuming that it is this type of modification for which the USPSA "box" was intended gauge.

You can modify the grips, It must fit in the box, and can't look like a recoil reducing device. If you somehow molded a thumb rest on there you would have an issue. As it is, you are just putting on custom grips which is allowed. I use a set of grips that make the gun feel like a 2011 and have had no issues at large USPSA or IPSC matches including the World Shoot.

Page 85-86 of the current rule book spell it out pretty well.
