So, whether the design was modified by the manufacturer or the end user to reduce capacity, it is still considered a "modification".

The proposed law states that permanent modifications performed to reduce capacity will be illegal. There is no distinction between user-modified and factory-modified magazines.

It is clearly idiotic and without logic in terms of reality, but there it is. Would you expect anything else from a legislature that attempts to regulate things of which it has no knowledge?

I'm pretty sure that it can be argued that there is a difference between and end-user taking a factory 15-round magazine and modifying it to be a 10-round magazine and a factory redesigning that 15-round magazine's design to be able to manufactured as a 10-round magazine. they aren't making 15-round magazines and then modifying them to be 10-round mags. They may have taking the tooling that makes a 15-round mag body from a piece of sheet metal and redesigned it to make a 10-round mag body instead. that isn't modifying a 15-round mag into a 10-round mag.
