I am selling a 40 round magazine. Somebody in NY is interested. I would like to know is it illegal to send it to NY? Thanks for you input.

Illegal for them, I doubt anything would happen to you though.

It depends. Is the mag a "preban" mag? New York's laws allow possession and sale of mags manufactured prior to 9/1/94. If so it's 100% legal to ship to NY and for the recipient in NY to own it.

If it's not a preban mag, you can still send it to NY but I personally would not recommend it as the recipient may not know the law and can potentially get in trouble for it.


ETA: And never take advice on NY law from a Texan!!!

Like I said...
I just left out whether or not it's preban.

probably not... but if the mag was made after the passage of the original AWB in '94, then it would be quite illegal by NYS law.

As a former resident of NY let me tell you that NOTHING would happen to you. The guy on the other end might take it in the ass but you won't.

That's if it is NOT a preban. Preban is A-OK.

is there any date of manufacture listed on the mag?

You mean "after" right? Because "before" the AWB would be pre ban, which is ok.



23. "Large capacity ammunition feeding device" means a magazine, belt,
drum, feed strip, or similar device, manufactured after September
thirteenth, nineteen hundred ninety-four
, that has a capacity of, or
that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten
rounds of ammunition; provided, however, that such term does not include
an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating
only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

It is the responsibility of the buyer to know the laws in their state before buying.

I agree. After all, he's a fucking steamroller.
