You could very easily modify one yourself. There is a tutorial on this site about it:

I know that Parallax sells modified servos though...
Current project: Pirrh - Portable Intelligent Round Rolling Hexapod

Thanks, but actually i am an E&TC engineer. I dont have much mechanical background.
Removing mechanical stop provided in gear will be quite difficult for me.
& anyway college is spnsoring my robo so no matter of money.
