    Hey all,

    I have seen many people use the Magpul AFG for their AR pistols and was wondering if there were any laws in WA stat that prevent me from having one.

    I know that the actual forward vertical grips are illegal but are AFGs okay?:huh:

    i cant cite a memo, but as i recall, VFGs are defined as forward grips by which you can wrap your thumb and fingers around in opposing direction, and therefor the magpul AFG is not considered, BY THE ATF, to be a VFG. contact your state AG for any local rulings.

    That one could be interpreted differently by various "enforcement" people. I'd feel better checking with them first and asking for written authority to cite if some bureaucrat or regulator says otherwise.
