    Default Shotgun pistol grips...

    Does anyone know if there is a law thru the batfe covering shotguns with pistol grips converted from the original wooded stock.... I have a new stock on the shotgun, but I am working on a wooden grip... Any idea on legal issues??

    No federal laws at all (none in Texas, either).

    Switch'em back and forth as you like.

    Just be mindful of the federal shortness limit of 26" overall length. While most autos and pumps with the min. 18" bbl pass, some single shots and double bbls have a short enough receiver that a pistol grip replacing the stock will drop it below the limit and require NFA registration to be legal.

    I think the only rule pertaining to shotguns with pistol grips concerns the minimum age one must be to buy the shotgun from a FFL. A shotgun can be legally purchased from an FFL by an 18-year-old, provided that this shotgun has a normal buttstock and has NO pistol grip(s). One must be the age of 21 years in order to purchase a shotgun with a pistol grip from an FFL. Silly - I know.

    And of course the minimum overall length, as posted above.

    Once you're 18 Fed age limitations only apply to sales from an FFL, not ownership. Ya gotta be 21 to buy a handgun for example, but once you're 18 you can have as many as you like. You just can't walk into a gunstore and buy one until 21.
