    Default BATF RULES on small KeyMod HandStop on AR-15 pistol ?

    ❇️ Does a small hand stop on AR-15 Pistol violate BATF RULES ?

    Hiya,
    Can anyone comment on having a small KeyMod HandStop on an AR-15 pistol violating BATF RULES, in terms of not being allowed to have a ‘Vertical Grip’ on an AR-15 pistol ?


    Thanks for your feedback !

    That's easy a hand stop isn't a vertical grip since it cannot be gripped vertically.

    There are plenty of factory made AK/AR type pistols that come with a hand stop, some actually molded into the hand guard since it's more a safety feature rather then an accessory.

    Ok, now I understand why you were asking this in the Pennsylvania subforum.

    I’m not disparaging the OP, but these AR pistols are being snapped up by lots of folks with little understanding of the NFA. Eventually it may mean the end of the AR pistol fun.

    I fail to understand how or why they would go away solely due to NFA violations?

    One can violate the NFA in any number of ways with rifles, shotguns, handguns as well as 922R parts compliance on imported firearms so why would AR pistols which have been around better then 20 years suddenly become any different?

    It's always been on the user to know the laws and how to stay compliant and it appears the OP is trying to do just that.

    As said in the other thread: The ATF regulates that you cannot have a 2nd VERTICAL handgrip (the handguns grip is the 1st vertical handgrip) on a handgun UNLESS it is registered as a AOW (Any Other Weapon). The ANGLED foregrips or handstops are not regulated by the ATF (at this time).
