I bought a pre-ban Glock 23 with 13 round mags in the late 90's. I recently bought a new Glock 22. If I am correct, it is legal to order rebuild kits for the old 13 round mags. Its legal to rebuild them into 15's. Its also legal to use those same rebuilt 15's in my new G22 since its not required to have a non-detachable mag? Do I have that right?

Almost perfect.

The minor imperfection relates to the form of the question: if your concern is "Its also legal..." then the legal term 'large-capacity magazine' is what you want.

Remember, for a Colt 1911, 8 rounds is 'high capacity'.
