Default AR15 10/30 round mags - still okay

A few years ago I bought a 30 round mag that had been permanently changed to only hold 10 rounds. It has a rivet ran through it that cannot be removed without machining it out.

One of my knowledgeable buddies told me these are no longer legal as California states you cannot have a mag that even looks like a 30 round mag regardless of whether it is limited or not.

Is this true?

Not true. Blocked 10/20 and 10/30 magazines are legal.

You can no longer buy "repair packages" that contain the mag body, floorplate, spring and follwer all in one. That's what passed. Of course it's still legal to obtain those parts separately, plus a mag block, and assemble your own fully legal 10/20 or 10/30 magazines.

What's everyone's thoughts on just a rivet to block the follower from holding more than 10 with the baseplate riveted also. I won't take it as legal advice of course.

Not true. There is no law regulating how long a magazine must be, only the capacity. It is legally possible to have a 5 foot long magazine, as long as it only holds 10 rounds.

I've got two mags that I believe are for 20 rounds. Only 10 will fit and there were no issues with the range officers walking by.
