    Just out of curiosity, is the following setup legally possible - and if so, how many tax stamps would I have to pay for?

    AR-15 Pistol w/ foregrip & lightning link.

    Lightning Link will have it's own tax stamp when you buy it. They are going for around $7000-$9000 last time I saw prices, but it's been a while since I saw one sell.

    AR15 pistol with foregrip would need the tax stamp but not if the RLL is installed.

    When the AR15 is the "host" it can take on the configuration of an NFA weapon. If you remove the RLL you'd have to remove the foregrip unless you had a different tax stamp for an AOW.

    So, one tax stamp as long as they were all assembled, 2 tax stamps if you wanted to remove the RLL and still keep the foregrip.

    There are letters to this effect from Tech Branch if you search around for them.

    Same info here on the old quarterbore site:


    Also be aware that RLL's don't work with lots of AR receivers and bolt carriers on the market, you have to pay attention when you buy the host.
