Default Age 21 to by a pistol grip pump shotgun?

Just recently heard this. Sounds like FUD to me, but I'm not sure. Always though a shotgun was considered a "longgun". Anybody got the scoop on this? Thanks, c good

Here is what you do:

Buy a normal shotgun.

Buy a pistol grip separately.

Swap the furniture.

I guess I should clarify "Pistol Grip" They style I'm thinking of is a stardard style stock with a pistol style grip. Not a Pistol Grip only, I.E. Mossberg 500 conversion pistol grip only.

Default Gun Control Act of 1968

Federal laws...

A FFL dealer can not transfer a firearm to a person that is under the age of 21. Exemption to this are Title 1 rifles and Title 1 shotguns. [18 USC 922(b)(1)]

A Title 1 rifle is defined as a firearm with a shoulder stock and a rifled barrel length of 16" or greater and an overall length of 26" or greater.

A Title 1 shotgun is defined as a firearm with a shoulder stock and a smoothbore barrel length of 18" or greater and an overall length of 26" or greater.

A factory pistol grip only "shotgun" does not have a shoulder stock.
Therefore, it does not meet the legal definition of a Title 1 shotgun.
Therefore, it is classified a Title 1 other firearm.

Since it is a Title 1 other firearm, it can not be transferred by a FFL to a person under the age of 21.

You should be okay buying it if it has a pistol grip and a stock.

If it has a stock, you should be good.
