May one pass along a normal (high) cap mag to a family member? Or is this legal ownership allowed for the sole individual whom made the purchase of the mag. Im asking if the mag were to be given through a Will and left along with additional non firearm items.

Im pretty sure that what you are trying to do is a no-go. The best we can do in this state is pass along re-build kits, so they can make 10 round mags with the parts of a standard capacity mag. I suppose there is always the fantasy work around of finding a standard cap mag somewhere. If you try this while alive and get caught, its bad, but if you do this as a last act, with those to receive them completely unknowing, it might pass the test

Before you die, break them up into rebuilt kits, THEN they can have them.

You can pass them on to anyone as long as they do not ever bring or store them in California.

Thanks. What a bummer the little ones won't be able to shoot more than 10x before cali says that's enough you can't shoot that paper bullseye target any more until you reload again

I don't see anywhere that says it's illegal to receive, if you're dead, who cares if you are guilty of CA PC 12020...

The executor of the will would be "giving" en behalf of the deceased.

Even if you were to posthumously give the mags to your son, none of the exemptions listed in PC12020(b)(19-32) would apply, since they only apply to magazines "lawfully possessed within California" prior to the ban.

Those magazines could NEVER leave California or it would trigger a fresh importation charge upon reentry.
They could not be broken down into rebuild kits for purpose of export/import because that would trigger a fresh manufacturing charge upon their rebuilding in California.
