    Default Under 16" Barrell must be AOW for Vertical Foregrip what about a Horizontal grip

    I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this question but have never seen it specifically addressed

    I know for a short barrel firearm it must have an AOW tax stamp to utilize a vertical foregrip but would a Horizontal foregrip also require AOW status ?

    Negative. This is a common misconception.

    A 16" barrel is not required to get past AOW status.

    If your firearm is longer than 26" you can add a vertical foregrip and avoid AOW status.

    As for the horizontal bit -- it shouldn't matter. It is all based around being designed for one-handed or two-handed firing.

    Don't forget that the ATF has ruled/determined that the Magpul AFG (and probably several other angled grips out there) does not constitute a foregrip. So, you can have an AFG on a pistol and not be required to get an AOW stamp.
