question about unique trigger on a single six

I have a "what's it worth" question on a unique single six I saw yesterday. I'm interested in picking it up, but would like to know a few things first. The trigger has had a trigger over-travel stop screw drilled and tapped in through the middle of the trigger surface. It is adjustable with an allen wrench and I don't know if Ruger ever did this sort of thing on any of their revolvers from the factory, or if this had to be done by someone after the fact. It looks professionally installed and it is set up pretty well. I don't really know why someone would do that to a single action .22 in particular, because I would think that the trigger wouldn't really have any inherent over-travel due to the relative crispness of a revolver trigger. But, that's why I'm here asking....is this unique or have any extra value? The gun is a stainless Single Six with both cylinders, 6 1/2" bbl and is in excellent (95%) condition. The guy wants to get $300 plus tax out of it. Any input and/or advise?

Doubt this is a factory mod.

OTOH, if it looks decent, probably doesn't hurt the value either. Not as if replacing the trigger would break the bank.

Nope,, not factory. Any good gunsmith can do this type of modification. It seems to be a fair price,, and it can be returned to factory configuration easily. As mentioned,, a replacement trigger.
