1. Yes, if they are 10 round or less magazines. No, if they are large capacity magazines.

2. No.

What if I dissemble the large cap mag and give it to a friend as rebuild kit?

That's ok because they would not be "magazines" now; only parts.

You know you live in a state with so many (at times complicated) laws regarding firearms that a question like #2 would even be asked. OP I'm not knocking you, I'm glad you want to be informed.

You can give a parts kit to a friend but the friend can't legally assemble them back into magazines unless the friend is a LEO.

Parts kits can generally only be used to repair already owned 10+ capacity magazines.

Or be used to make permanent 10 round or less magazines.
