No, but there is regulation on that. There is no regulation on buying 10 round magazines. The regulation that goes into effect when you make a pre-ban large capacity magazine, limited to 10 is...
"...A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds"....

This holds true for use in fixed magazine firearms.

Store bought 10 round magazines do NOT need to comply with that regulation. The determining factor is, ""Capacity to accept more than 10 rounds" shall mean capable of accommodating more than 10 rounds..."

The condition of accommodating less than 11 rounds doesn't need to be PERMANENT.

so when you alter a 30rd magazine to limit its capacity, the phrase "permanently altered" comes into play. There is now debate and negotiation as to what they means. There is NO debate or negotiation when its simply a ten round capacity magazine.... even one with a longer body.
