Pistol Brace FAQ
What's the legal pistol brace length for Kriss Vector With A Vertical Grip
Any length of pistol brace remains legal; however, specific dimensional requirements dictate the type of foregrip permissible for the Kriss Vector.
- If the overall length is less than 26 inches, a vertical grip is not allowed (as it is classified as an AOW).
- If the overall length exceeds 26 inches, a vertical grip is permitted (and it is not classified as an AOW).
- Handstops and angled foregrips can be installed on any configuration of the Vector.
In the latest ATF update on June 25, 2019, it was clarified that the presence of a pistol stabilizing brace does not determine the classification of a firearm as a pistol or otherwise.
In other words, attaching a brace to a firearm does not alter its classification.
