It depends. Take note of the federal definition of a pistol:

https://www.atf.gov/firearms/firearm...inition-pistol

So if you install a pistol grip then it’s a pistol. If, instead, you designed it to be pintle-mounted on a tripod, it wouldn’t meet the federal definition of a pistol and therefore would be a “firearm”. If you put a pistol grip on it and also put a vertical foregrip on it, then it would either be an NFA AOW or a non-NFA “firearm” depending on whether it was over or under 26” overall length, and that’s because it no longer meets the federal definition of a pistol since it’s not designed to be fired with one hand.

Yes.
