It took effect on 1/1/2000. See here:

I owned large-capacity magazine(s) since before January 1, 2000, are they legal? (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#I_owned_large-capacity_magazine.28s.29_since_before_January_1.2C _2000.2C_are_they_legal.3F)

It actually started in 1994 with the Fed AWB. What that included was a prohibition on 10+ magazines that were manufactured after the ban went into effect. It didn't prohibit aquisition of hi-cap magazines that were already made prior to that date. 2000 was the year Californians could no longer aquire anymore hi-cap magazines, regardless of when they were manufactured.

While you are technically correct, the 1994 ban is expired and for all intents and purposes has no relevance to California's large capacity magazine restrictions.

Therefore, I hate you. (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#How_is_the_California_large-capacity_magazine_ban_affected_by_the_Federal_ban_ .28from_1994-2004.29.2C_and_vice_versa.3F)

Correct me if I am wrong here but, if what your saying is right, then anyone can buy a firearm in California from a private party that has per-ban hi capacity magazines {also in California} then you are with-in the law and you can own it/them. Right?

No, the seller can't sell any high capacity magazines to you. You had to have owned those magazines before the cutoff date.
Read the link that DedEye provided as it has the answer.

I want to say "I hate you" but since you caught the oversight, I can't bring myself to hate you right now. (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#Magazine_Questions)

You've been 'Dedeyed' hahah... I think if you wanted to be a meme you need a better name. Your name quickly repeated sounds to me like the theme song to "The Pink Panther"

Points to grizzly for posting the only answer needed!!!
