A person told me today , that Apparently you can now buy offhand light sabers and take of the mods and use them mods on a mainhand lightsaber --- is this true? you were never able to do this before

Not the best forum directory for this thread, but you could ALWAYS take color crystals, mods, and enhancements from offhands and put them in your mainhand. The only item modification that is slot restricted is the hilt.

The only way to get around that is to buy an offhand weapon from the comms vendor, place it in a bound-to-legacy lightsaber, have whichever character in your legacy that has artifice as a crafting skill extract the hilt, and reverse engineer it at a 60% chance to learn the schematic. Then, of course, you'd have to have the materials especially the Exotic Isotope Stabilizers and more importantly the operations-drop-only Dark Matter Catalyst to actually craft the hilt to then use in your mainhand.
