A magpul Angled Foregrip is good to go. A foreward vertical foregrip is a no go unless you get an AOW stamp for it.

A pistol (no stock, configured as such) with an OAL of >26" can have a vertical foregrip. After it meets this, it is no longer considered a pistol but a title 1 firearm like the Franklin Armory xo-26. They seem to have a letter stating its okay for them to make and sell it, it is their letter however.

Per Federal laws...
If the firearm has a rifled barrel length of less than 16" and has an overall length of greater than 26" and does not have a shoulder stock, then it is a Title 1 Other firearm. Due to it's greater than 26" overall length, it does not meet the definition of a Title 1 Handgun.

A Title 1 Other firearm can legally have a vertical forward grip.
A Title 1 Handgun can not legally have a vertical forward grip.

Per CA laws...
If the firearm has a rifled barrel length of less than 16" and does not have a shoulder stock, then it is a handgun.

A handgun that is a semi-auto pistol that accepts detachable magazines can not legally have a second handgrip (horizontal, angled or vertical).
A handgun that is a semi-auto pistol with a fixed 10 or less round magazine can legally have a second handgrip.
