Ummmmmmmmm I thought that with any type of fore grip this turns it into an SBR…I wasn’t allowed to do it with my arsenal AK pistol I could be wrong though.
It’s not an SBR because there is no provision for a stock to be attached; however, it does seem to meet the “Any Other Weapon” classification outline in 26 U.S.C. § 5845(E). However, it’s my understanding that MasterPiece Arms has an ATF Opinion Letter clearing it. So, it’s probably good to go. Thanks for commenting. Good observation.
