I need a little clarification, if you run a featureless build you can use mags> then 10 rounds, or does that only apply to those mags that were owned before a certain year, and if so what if i were to get mine from my home state and bring them back? Clarification: i go back to Colorado and get mags greater tehn 10 rounds could i legally use them in my featureless AR?

Yes you can legally use 10+ rounds with a featureless semi auto that is over 30" OAL. To legally own 10+ round mags you had to possess them in CA before 2000.

I am no lawyer but the best I understand it is NO! By going home to bring the 30rd mag back(or having them shipped back), would be illegal importation of a "high capacity" magazine!
So as I read the law it would only apply to magazines that were owned in California prior to the ban.


I know....this state sucks!

If you possessed those magazines in CA Before 2000 you can have them in CA and run them in featureless rifle. You can not buy/import/build new Hi-caps though.

If you owned hi caps in the State before Jan 1st 2000 and left the state and came back later you may still legally hold your high cap magazines. I found a DOJ letter confirming this fact. Oh, this < is greater than, this > is less than :)

Possessed. If you POSSESSED "large-capacity" magazines in CA before Y2K you may possess them legally today. If our OP had visited CA with his mags prior to the arbitrary date then he would be able to re-import those same mags legally.

...and the statement "20>10" is read as "twenty is greater than ten," so Cobra I'm not sure what you're trying to say?

No.

4 < 6

The open end always faces the greater number. It's like in 4th grade math when the teach told you that the greater than/less than symbol is like pac man who wan't the bigger "meal"

The laws that govern featureless rifles, and those that govern ownership of large capacity magazines are not one and the same. Make sure you understand the individual areas of the laws.

Possession is NOT illegal no matter when you came into possession of them.

But...You MUST use them in a featureless rifle....I love my Kel-tec SU16CA.

Legal 30 round mags in a "evil" rifle is illegal even if you have a bullet button. Check flow chart...

For 30 roungs mags to be illegal THEY MUST PROVE that you imported, sold, purchased, and/or manufactured the magazine in the last 3 years. Once again possession is NOT illegal.
