Does anyone know if there are any legalities to putting handguards onto a P.O. AR-15 pistol? The barrel is 7.5" and I was wanting to put on some handguards from a shorty carbine. Help Please!!!

Or as I was reading can I put a front foregrip from Knight and that would be all right. I guess it is all a matter of weight.

You can't put handguards on because with handguards, I'm pretty sure you'll exceed the 50 oz. weight limit for a post ban assault pistol. You could attach a forward grip only if you first register the gun as an "Any Other Weapon" (AOW) on a form 1 or have a manufacturer do it for you on a form 1 and then transfer it to you on a form 4.

the handguard its self is a banned feature.
