Civil attorneys will attack anything. This is easily countered by an expert pointing out that the safety had nothing to do with you pulling the trigger intentionally. For every attorney that would argue this, there's an expert that could rebut it.
I certainly don't know what the BATFE is declaring, but to me it sounds like an issue for S&W, not the average user. Unless the modification makes it prone to being considered a Saturday Night Special? Might be worth you contact the ATF over.
