    Someone here knows more about this than i do (in fact a whole bunch of people probably do). But, as i recal placing a foreward handguard or grip on a semi-auto pistol places it firmly into the AOW category.

    I believe you're right. Forward handgrips are a big no-no for pistols. I've looked at this auction before. My FFL would be very upset with me if I transferred in something like this.

    This would not be classified as an AOW (Any Other Weapon) nor would it be unlawful under the AWB since there aren't enough "assult weapon features".

    The problem with forward grips has to do with pistols that have a detachable magazine NOT located in the grip. Which is why it is a no-no to put a foregrip on a pistol based on an AR-15 action.

    Now, if you ain't already confused enough, you didn't read it well enough. So the definitive answer is... MAYBE. Of course, this obviously outlaws the 'Homeboy' pistol I was saving up to get... can anybody tell why?
