Should I just destroy it and throw it away?

You actually took your old one apart? :p


Seriously.... smash and toss the parts.
Some people recommend keeping them to "prove" that you used your rebuild kit(s) in a legal manner, but since very few magazine parts are date stamped, there's really nothing that the old parts would "prove" anyways.

I might make an exception to that comment if I were to, say rebuild a USGI magazine into a PMag, since PMags are definitely post-ban.

That's actually what I'm doing (rebuilding old USGI mags to PMags).

I don't think I'll keep it anyway. <---living life on the edge haha jk.

As much as I'm pro living life on the edge, this day in age I feel like the state is more likely to screw you than believe you so I'd say play it safe and keep the parts. It's not like they're taking up much space anyway.

Use any salvageable parts to build some 10/30 mags.

Still wouldn't matter.
You have no way to prove that you had the original magazines prior to Jan 1, 2000 (unless you keep 11+ year old receipts), and in any event, the burden of proof is on the state to prove that you imported or assembled the magazine after September 5, 2007 (3 year statute of limitations).

somehow I don't think a pile of smashed mag parts can prove ANYTHING.

They can prove mag parts can be smashed.

I've been thinking about rebuilding my old USGI magazines into PMAGs.
And if I do, I though about just keeping the USGI magazine bodies as just-in-case proof I owned them before 01-01-2000 (almost all my old USGI magazines are date stamped).
