View Full Version : High Capacity Magazine Discussion

Forgive me if this topic's been brought up before, but I didn't find anything via search and I went through the wiki articles. I just wanted to get these things straight-

Completely legal to possess and use magazines holding more than 10 rounds if possessed prior to January 1, 2000 in the state of California.

Completely legal to possess ONLY (no usage allowed) if possessed prior to January 1, 2000 any magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

You need to read it again then. There is a lot wrong with your assessment. It's legal to own high cap magazines no matter what year they are from. It's legal to use them in rifles but not in semi-auto rifles that have a permanently attached magazine AKA bullet buttond rifles greater than .22.

If you read the wiki articles, where are you reading "possessed prior to 1/1/2000"? Read again, and go read the actual penal code.

Both are legal to possess and use, although there are some use restrictions regarding certain types of rifles firearms (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#Use_of_large-capacity_magazines_in_.22Bullet_Buttoned.22_firear ms).

I use +10 round mags in rifles all the time. There is only one small group of rifles where use of a +10 round mag would be violating AW laws. Of course, the same is true when it comes to handguns. In other words, +10 round mags are legal to use in all firearms except semi auto handguns with fixed mags and semi auti centerfire rifles with fixed mags.
