I don't think it works for a shotgun. Take for example the Remington 870 #24823, it comes with an 18" barrel and front an rear pistol grips. Is it an AOW? No. But if you cut it down to less than 18", it is an "unconventional pistol" due to being a smooth bore pistol. The front grip has nothing to do wiith the AOW ruling on a shotgon. Maybe if it was a .410 with a rifled bore, then it might need a VFG to be an AOW.

I'm still curious about the AOW status though not making the firearm a pistol.
Not sure about the question here.

Do you want an AOW or C&R SBS/SBR in CA?
