It is consider a "sawed off" if it has a barrel less than 18" and/or a total length less than 26". Be sure to check the actual law though, because That is from memory and could be wrong.

I guess check the law like advised but I don't see anything written here that looks illegal.

Should be fine if OAL is 27". Mossberg makes a 14.5" barreled pistol grip 500 that can be had with a birdhead grip. It's 26.5" OAL and doesn't require a stamp. Considered a "firearm" not a shotgun since it never had a butt stock on it.

Your combination is fine. To be a legal shotgun the barrel must be 18" or longer AND the overall length has to be 26" or longer. Less on either dimension is a NFA SBS.
The mention of the 14.5" version as "firearm" above is legal at federal level only if the gun came from factory with a pistol grip and never had a buttstock installed.
