I've read that threaded muzzles are allowed on postban lowers if one uses a thumbhole stock instead of a pistol grip.

Brownell's has some okay looking thumbholes.

Opinions on whether or not this is this a legal config?

It is the published opinion of the BATF that a thumbhole is in fact a pistol grip - no go.

Yes and No. Yes, if you get rid of the "protruding psitol grip" you can have the threaded muzzle. However, as paul pointed out... ATF's opinion is that a thumbhole stock has a protruding pistol grip.

Only if the grip is below the receiver. If you can figure out how to mount a grip inline or above the receiver, it is not considered an evil grip. A side question, anyone know what a "best grip" means in the credits of a movie?

I believe the terms are "Best Boy" and "Key Grip". Refers to the craft trades. One is the head electrician, the other is the chief carpenter. I think. And I don't remember which is which.

Actually Best Boy Grips and Key Grips have the same job responsibilites but the best boy is like the chief Grip. They do electrical and other set work.

What would be the purpose of having a threaded barrel on a postban? You would still be unable to attach a silencer or a flash hider. TRG

Well, if the ban sunsets then all one would need to do is trade out the thumbhole stock for a telescoping stock and pistol grip. No need to hack away at a permanently attached muzzle brake. Just a thought.
