15 rd mags

    I was wondering which states had laws restricting magazine capacity to 15 rounds. That's a pretty quirky number if you ask me, since most magazines come in 5, 10, 30 and such capacities. HK-91 mags in particular come in 5, 20, and 30 round capacities.

    Here's my goofball idea: Since some hi-caps are a dime a dozen (AK-47/74, HK-G3 aftermarket), what about cutting a few down to serve those in less fortunate states? Any buyers? I'm thinking of doing some gun accessory fabrication/modification on the side this summer.

    Also, anyone know of HK ten rounders? Special Weapons once said that they have one but I've never seen one elsewhere.

    Here's something that won't be as labor intensive make a block something like the plug used in shotguns that way the mag is still usable for states where high cap is legal. either way when you get them done I'll link you with my website and you can market them to some of my customers -- the only thing I will ask is that you keep your info updated

    Really?

    I'd be inclined to think they'd find a removable plug to make it "readily adaptable" to accept more ammo. Do you know what the criteria is? I've always thought plugs to be non-permanent fixtures to comply with hunting regs, not to comply with weapon bans. If you know the criteria, I'd be happy to know.

    Mags in banned states.

    I live in CA, I know that here, and probably in other states where high cap mags are banned, they cannot have a temporary plugged. The mags have to be permanetly altered so as not to be able to accept more than 10 rounds. Although, you can still own the high cap mags you purchased before the ban, you can't trade, buy, sell, give away, or import into CA any more high caps.
     
  5. So in PRK do you have to register your hi cap mags too?

    And I thought NY was bad.

    You do not have to register Hi cap mags in California.

    If I remember correctly, HI and CA have 10 round limits, as well as NYC. NJ has a 15 round limit. MD has a weird rule. You can own mags of any size, BUT you can only buy in state mags of 20 rounds or less. Yes, you can drive to PA, VA or any other state and buy them and drive them back no problem HOWEVER your local dealer or gun show is limited to 20 rounds or less.

    Ah yes, from simple mag capacity alterations to caliber conversions to crossbreeding designs. Now a moderator, probably the youngest. Thanks for bringing it back, Papa G!
