So there's a disconnect. While it's logical that (c) would include (d), it doesn't. So a forward pistol grip is not bound by the web of the hand below the action definition.
(c) just states if you can get a pistol style grasp on a GRIP mounted in front of the trigger, then it's a forward pistol grip. It specifies "grip", so things like sling mounts, bipods, light mounts are not included.
The AFG is marketed and used as a grip.
I would not use one on a featureless build or a pistol.
Like it or not, this is a pistol style grasp using this grip:
Nailed it, Fate. Thanks for actually posting up the relevant PC.
