Shoulder Stock

If it was designed for use with a shoulder stock, to be fired from the shoulder, then it cannot be a "handgun." It has to be a rifle or shotgun, although of the "Short Barrel" variety if the barrel isn't at least 16 for rifles, 18" for scatterguns. That's why AR-15 style handguns have to be built on special frames whose serial numbers were designated by the manufacturer as "pistol" frames only.

Forward Grip on Pistols?

Adam, who says that if you put a forward handgrip on a pistol, to facilitate a two-hand hold, you're making it a SBR? Do you have a citation to a law or a court case or some expert saying so? Lots of people have Cobray /SWD "Mac-11" pistols, and a common accessory for them is to install a vertical foregrip, usually in a set along with a barrel extension.

The federal definition of a handgun or pistol is NOT a gun that was meant to be fired with a one-handed grip, if that's what you're getting at.
