pistol grip + high-cap mag is a no no

you can either have it 10 round fixed mag with bb and pistol grip

or featureless with an size mag....

If you add a pistol grip, then yes, you will need to add a bullet button to make it legal. As far as using the 30 rounders, yes, you will need to remove or change 4 foreign parts with US made parts, but only parts on the official list. So, adding a bullet guide (for the 30 rounders) wouldn't help your parts count, because you are not removing a foreign part you are just adding a US part.

The key is 10 or less foreign parts. The bullet guide is not a 922 part.

If you add a pistol grip, it is a 922 part and will bring the total part count to 15 so you will need 5 or more US parts. You also require a bullet button and cannot use 30 round mags in this config.

Without a pistol grip, it would require 4 or more US parts.
