If one were to sell hi cap mags as parts kits for repairs for those who already have existing damaged mags, what is the procedure?

Does one sell all the parts that make a magazine or some?

You can sell all the parts, nothing illegal about it. Some people may not want to sell all the parts out of a desire to limit their legal liability, but there's no legal requirement for that.

asl long as you owned them prior to the ban
you could even replace the floorplate if you wanted too

Obviously they must be completely disassembled. (and you must have legally obtained them in the first place.)

Also, I would recommend being over-cautious here and selling all but 1 part, that way there is no way to claim that you are engaging in a legal artifice.

You don't have to, you could just box up a full parts kit and send it off. But have $30k ready for defense if you do.

I am not clear on one thing. Owning a magazine BEFORE THE BAN? So I see a guy shooting His 92FS. He has several 15 rd Factory magazines on the bench. Now HOW DO YOU KNOW if they are legal or not? Say If I got a CZ- 75 or a Sig 226 made 25 years ago. And "somehow" have several 15 rd mags for it. Are the LEGAL?

I can't say on an open forum. But, please do your research, it's been covered here before.

Even if they are LE marked they are still legal as long as they were purchased before the ban.

"LE MARKED" mags are legal too.

You simply must have legally obtained them (generally this means a purchase before the 1999 ban.)

Read the penal code.

So if a 22 year old is running around with a 92F and a buch of 15 mags, He COULD NOT HAVE OWNED THEM BEFORE THE BAN. Right?

If he was born before the ban then he could have owned them before the ban.

A 22 year old sure. A seven year old, probably not.

He could have purchased the 15rd magazines, or had given to him, before the ban and then purchased the 92F to use them when he turned 21. As long as he had posession of them before the ban (someone could have given them to him as a gift when he was a newborn) it is legal.

So what about guns that were not yet made ? XD for example? ETC.

Logic would tell me that if the magazine was specific to the firearm and not a universal mag made after 2000 (I.E. AR15 mags are accepted in a wide variety of guns....Kel-tec series, vs as you said in example the XD) you would be limited to the standard 10 rounds, while in other states they can carry the full capacity. (XD .45's hold 14 rounds total out of California)

-but thats just my logic and understanding

There are rumors that gun lovers from free states are dropping hi-cap magazines for late model handguns via parachute into the desert and mountains to be "found" by the resistance fighters in PRK.

It doesn't matter.... people could have obtained any magazine after the ban. It's not illegal to buy or find mags.

Is it possible for a single thread to have "DUPE", "USE THE SEARCH", and "NECROPOST" comments against it? :p

Looks like hd0642 did the right thing in searching and bringing up an old thread rather than starting a new one w/o searching.

Hopefully your question has been answered.

I have 4 30rnd Ciener mags for my Cienner AR-15 conversion.

How can i rebuild them with Black dog mags?

Will using the old baseplate be sufficient?

Yes, they can be rebuilt as Black Dog mags. However, if I recall correctly the base plate is not interchangeable. The spring is, though you may need to cut it a bit to achieve proper functionality.

If you cut it too much and it stops working, you can replace the old spring with the new one next.
