View Full Version : 30 round Magazine repair/replacement letter

10-04-2007, 1:01 PM
I know someone here has a copy of a letter from AM (DOJ) about the legality of importing 20/30 rd magazines for replacement & repairs. Can I get a copy please?

I am working with a dealer about getting 10 & 30 rds shipped here for Mini 14. It would be nice for them to have a copy. Thanks.

Disclaimer: This is only for repair or replacement of your existing 30 rounders you possess prior to the ban. It is Illegal to import magazines that hold more than 10 rounds in California.

Gene has it on his website.


OOPS: I forgot to add that one can purchase Magazine kits but not complete magazines.

A magazine kit = a magazine that is disassembled.

Whole *magazines* can't really be imported by you for repair of your mags.

Magazine parts - i.e., disassembled magazines - can be imported for repair of your mags.

(An FFL w/hicap mag permit could indeed import mags, however, and sell the disassembled parts.)

Have no idea nut even if he did you could not purchase complete magazines from him unless you have a permit or are a LEO.

Thanks gents. Does Wes have the permit?
