Yes, pistol grips are generally allowed on shotguns in California. There are a few exceptions, however. For example, certain pump-action shotguns with overall lengths of 26 inches or less may not be fitted with a pistol grip. Additionally, any shotgun that has been declared an assault weapon may not have a pistol grip (this includes certain semi-automatic shotguns).
Finally, it is important to note that possessing or using a firearm fitted with a pistol grip in the commission of a crime can result in enhanced penalties.
