Question Converting High Capacity Magazines For Sale With Pistol

I have a pistol I purchased back in the early 1990ís and it came with 14 round magazines. I want to sell the pistol now and a buyer wants the 14 round magazines too. Would it be legal for me to convert the 14 round magazines to 10 rounds with Magblocks and epoxy and provide them to the buyer? Are there any risks that are not obvious? The buyer tells me I can give him the 14 rounds unassembled, but I donít believe that is legal.

Yes, legal for you to convert.

And buyer is most probably wrong - disassembled large-capacity mags are highly likely to be 'large capacity magazine conversion kits', and such transfer would be illegal.

But nobody knows for sure exactly what a 'large capacity magazine conversion kit' really is - no clarification in statute, regulation, or court opinions.

You may not transfer a magazine with a capacity of more the ten rounds even if itís dis-assembled. You may consider a different buyer.

Id sell em after putting a block in. I wouldn't even worry about "permanent" since there is no definition of "permanent".
