Default 870 Detachable Magazine Laws

Is it legal to have a pistol grip stock with this since it has a detachable magazine? How about a vertical fore grip? How about both? How about only a pistol grip and no stock? I cant seem to find anything regarding this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It is not semi-automatic so you can go wild with magazines if there is such a thing.

OP, you must be thinking about something like this:

As stated above, a pump version like this (non-semi-auto) will be fine. The magazine on this one is only 6 rds so no issues there either.

Under CA laws/regulations, the only restrictions for pump-action shotguns are:
1. Minimum barrel length of 18".
2. Minimum overall length of 26" with the overall length is measured with the firearm in the shortest possible firing configuration (e.g. stock folded/collapsed).
3. Ammunition feeding device must comply with CA large capacity magazine laws.

Thank you Quiet!!! Are there any federal laws we need to be aware of?

Not really.
If you comply with the CA minimum restrictions, then you will also be in compliance with the Federal laws.
