    Is it legal to put a foregrip on a pistol?

    I have a Kel Tec PLR 16 and was told it wouldn't be a pistol if I put a foregrip on it that it would then be a SBR. Does anyone know if this is true?
    Walk softly and carry a large caliber.

    Is it legal to put a vertical foregrip on? Yes.

    Do you need to do anything before you put the foregrip on? Yes.

    What? Why?

    So, per the most recent decision by ATFEIEIO you need to register it as an AOW and pay the $5 for a tax stamp. The timing of paying the tax stamp is important, because if you manufacture an AOW without having paid the tax ATFEIEIO will become very upset and make life unpleasant for you.

    Remember, this response only addresses federal law. You need to check your state & local laws to see if you are allowed to posses an AOW and, if so, what permission slips you need to obtain in addition to the federal one.

    stay safe.

    To manufacture an AOW it is $200, and $5 to transfer.

    The short answer is NO, it is not legal to just put on a fore grip to a pistol.

    The long answer is yes, with the proper paperwork.
