    For all of you who were wondering about this here's the answer I got this morning from BATFE:

    This refers to your e-mail to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), regarding the Magpul AFG (Angled Fore-Grip), and ask about the lawfulness of attaching the Magpul AFG to certain pistols.

    In response to your specific question, installing a Magpul AFG on the pistol you describe wound not change its classification, thus would not be considered an AOW.

    Finally, we advise you to confirm that installing a Magpul AFG on a pistol does not violate any State laws or local ordinances where you reside.

    We thank you for your inquiry and trust the foregoing has been responsive.

    Well, I plan to keep a copy of this e-mai lwith me all the time when I take my pistol at the range.

    8 US Presidents have been NRA members. They are: Ulysses S. Grant,
    Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower,
    John F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush.

    80 MILLION law abiding gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!!


    The "Feedback Score" is low by 4, not everyone posts it I guess.

    That's why I posted it like this so people "WOUND" see who works for our Government ... You'd think they use a spell checker before they send anything out ... actually a spell checker would not have caught that.
