So in theory you could just buy a hi-point and JB-weld a front grip to it, or thread the barrel and get a $2000 tax credit?
Sounds like a good deal to me.
But wait isn't a pistol with a forward grip a NFA item? So you would have to pay the $200 tax stamp and get an extended background check to attach it?
Seems like the threaded barrel is the way to go. Is a hi-point barrel even thread-able?
