Default Pre Ban 50 rd double stack magazine question

For arguments sake, let's assume Joe owns a pre ban ruger 10-22 rifle with a double stack 50 rd mag. The rifle is stolen, never to be seen again. Is it legal for him to buy a post ban Ruger 10-22 and use the old mag with it?

"It wasn't a failure of laws," said Amanda Wilcox, who along with her husband, Nick, lobbies for the California chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. "I just don't see how our gun laws could have stopped something like that."

Absolutely. The magazine is legally possessed. It can be used in any weapon that it fits/functions with.

It came up in a "gun store discussion" The gun store owner wasn't sure it was legal.
I know.....gun store owners are not a good source for gun laws.

Asked and answered. See also the Magazine Q's link, below.
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
- Thomas Sowell
I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
