Legal to put a VFG on a Shockwave?

Trying to find out if it's legal to put a Vertical Foregrip (VFG) on a Shockwave? Internet search mostly indicates yes (it's NOT a pistol and those are the firearms prohibited from a VFG), but some say NO for a variety of reasons (mostly the uncertainty/confusion on how the Shockwave is classified). Anyone know for sure? Thanks!

Yes.


By definition, the Shockwave/et. al. is not a handgun. AFAIK, handguns are the only firearm on which a VFG is prohibited (i.e., it becomes an AOW) without a tax stamp.

If I'm not sure, I tend to err on the side of caution an just not do the thing I'm unsure of. Maybe buy some time with a firearms lawyer? Probably the guy you'd want defending you if need be?
