Michigan DOES allow AOW's, so you can actually cut the barrel down to whatever length you want, assuming you do not keep a butt stock attached. I've seen a few pistol grip 14" barrel shotties around.
Is that federal or some state law? As far as the feds are concerned, there's no such thing as a smooth-bore pistol. Pistol grip or not. If it's smooth-bore , it's a shotgun. Well.....not exactly. Also depends on if it ever had a stock.pistol griped shotguns need to be reg as a pistol
