Yes as long as he owned them before the ban he is totally fine. He just cannot sell them or transfer them to anyone else.

They are perfectly legal for him to posses and use, if they are for an AR pattern rifle, or other Bullet button gun he cannot use them in anything other than a RAW. If they are for a Pistl he can purchase the gun now and still use them. I think

Yes, they're legal to own and use, no, magazines were never registered.

Perfectly legal to own and use in a RAW (Registered Assault Weapon) or a Featureless OLL (Off List Lower Rifle with No Assault Weapon Features).
