Checking if Horizontal Forearm Grip/Flash Light Adaptor are OK?

Are horizontal forestocks OK for pistols?

Is this legal because it's technically a flashlight holder, or is it legal because it's not vertical?

That is a very good question. The ATF has said the Magpul AFG is okay for pistols. I would probably request a ruling from the ATF before I did that.

I'm going to say......probably ok. Reasons: It's not a vertical grip; it has a purpose other than being a grip; it doesn't permit you to hold the gun any differently than if you mounted a large laser or other light under the rail.

Just because it can be used to hold the gun won't make it illegal - the Carbon 15 pistols were designed basically to use the mag-well and magazine as a forward grip.

It might be right on the line, but I don't think it's crossed over into illegal territory.
