I had a Guy give me a Rossi circuit judge and told me what he wanted. I said OK give me a couple weeks.

What you did is a very big NO NO without a $200 tax stamp. You now have a pistol with a forward grip,and that's against the law without a tax stamp for the forward grip.
If you leave the buttstock attached to it,then it's legal,but it's illegal with a pistol grip on the rear.

I don't think barrel length has anything to do with it. I was looking into the laws on this subject a while back.I was wanting to put a forward grip on my PLR-16 pistol,and after figuring out it took a tax stamp,I didn't figure it was worth $200 for adding on that accessory.

Since all he did was a cosmetic change,he shouldn't need a FFL,but if he's actually working on the firearm,he probably needs to have one.

not 100% sure, but what i understood was that anything done to a firearm withing your possession for profit was considered gunsmithing and required an FFL to conduct such business.

that's reason anytime i ever worked on anyone's firearms, i never charged for the work. mostly refinishing stocks or mounting scopes and sighting them in for friends and family.

Franklin armory sells an AR-15 with an 11.5" barrel and vertical foregrip. They claim it is not a pistol, rifle, or AOW. If they can do it, you can do it.
