I had the understanding that a grip angled from 90 degrees was considered an angled-foregrip. That was the information passed along to me by persons that recommended that particular grip. That's the problem with interpretive law, it's a coinflip as to what's legal or not...how "angled" is angled?

All the NFA rules and regulations are ridiculous and should be abolished but unfortunately we're stuck with them.

I have an unused Magpul AFG I can mount...guess this one will go to the rifle.
It happens. I suggest to never take anyone's interpretation of the law as fact when it comes to battling gray areas- even mine! The ATF only states that a VFG is both in front of the magazine well and orientated perpendicular to the bore axis. You could make the assumption that means 90 degrees. Magpuls "angled foregrip" and other similar manufactured grips are classified as "handguard grips", not VFG, can not be gripped in a manner like a VFG and follow the same degree angle so its gets a pass. This grip however is sold as a VFG, is handled like a VFG and designed only for relief for curved magazines. At the end of the day, that is not something you want to try and "interpret" to the ATF when they bust your door down at 5am. You are making the right choice in removal and always lean to the side of caution when dealing with this. Good looking scorpion!

Just another Scorpion, but it’s mine!  Yeah, I used some filters to make my gat look a bit more dramatic and exciting. 



On another note, every once in a while the charging handle will not let me pull the bolt back.  It’s weird as if something is blocking the bolt.  I need to pull the trigger or really smack the charging handle to get it to cycle.  Anyone ever have this problem before?

I don't know if it's the same thing. Mine was really hard to charge, had loosened up with use. Never really felt like something was blocking it though.

Do you have a metal charging handle?

No it's a HB Industries Polymer charging handle.  Here's the funny thing, when I leave the safety on and let it sit the charging handle has this problem.  I can't pull the bolt back (as if it's being blocked) until I take the safety off.  Once the safety is off I can open up the bolt.  I don't know if it's unique to my Scorpion.  I'm going to start a thread asking about what could be my issue.

You can’t cycle the action with the safety on.

Huh! Like the 1911’s they would issue on Submarines?  Lol, I was on the USS L. Mendel Rivers and USS Olympia.

Wait a minute though, after taking the action is right again. I’m able to cycle the action even if the safety is on!

Well... apparently what I thought was a design feature is the problem you .... and I both have. Oh well....

I was on USS Florida and MTS Daniel Webster.

It has to do with whether the hammer is down or not.

If the hammer is down, you cannot rack the charging handle/bring bolt back with the safety on.

If the hammer is back, you can rack the charging handle/bring the bolt back with the safety on or off.

Took the BUIS off so that I could do a 3x magnifier when I feel like shooting at longer distances. Just got this https://www.americandefensemanufacturing.com/view/product/892/ after reading that some people's receivers were getting damaged by the Parker Mountain Machine QD mount. True or not, whatever excuse to get something new I suppose. :D

Love your build, it's super clean.

Thanks for the link on the mount.
