All magazines with a capacity of greater than ten rounds must be made prior to September of 1994 to be shipped to New York if they are for civilian use. Some magazines are stamped with a date code and some are not. Some magazines are stamped for LE or Military use and some are not.

Just to clarify regarding Hawaii....we are NOT entirely prohibited from purchasing/receiving standard (high) capacity magazines. Us LEOs can purchase/receive standard capacity mags provided we furnish proof of occupation/creds. The majority of companies I have dealt with have shipped to me/dept. based on the above requirements.

Just to give you non-Hawaii people an idea of what us LEOs are paying for for standard capacity mags:

AR15 20/30 rds mags = $25+
Glock mags = $25+

With these prices it makes total sense to order mags.

City of DENVER (not state) has banned any magazine over 21 rounds. Not quite the Kalifornia I left 5 years ago, but pretty damn close!
Good news is it's not actively enforced.

State wide, no such laws, in fact passed a "Shall Issue" CCW law in 2005...as a resident of Denver, it really pissed the Denver Police off when I demanded my CCW.

In Maryland you can't purchase, sell or transfer magazines above 20 round capacity. High capactity mags over 20 rounds are legal to posess. For example, I could buy some 30 round mags in DE and bring them into MD.

Clarification about those of us here in MD-istan. We can buy all we want, just can't take delivery in state.

Meaning, I can order a truck load of 30 round magazines, send them to my parents' place out of state, go get them and bring them home. This is perfectly legal.

Anyone know if this same thing is true for NY (state, not city)?

The Ohio information is not correct. As of this year, Ohio passed a state wide preemption law and high caps are legal in the entire state.

It works this way in California for LEO's as well.

As a non LEO/Mil, you can buy and sell pre 1994 hi-cap magazines within and outside of NYS. Those are the ones that are not marked for LEO/mil use only or not dated past 9/1994 or not marked at all. Most dealers don't want the liability but non dealers are more likely to ship into NYS. Aside from NYC, I think Albany has some kind of ban as well.

Well. Kinda.

Ohio state law reads, that any MACHINE GUN is defined as a weapon that can fire more than 31 rounds without reloading.

Now, that doesn't ban the sale or possession of 31+ round magazines, BUT it DOES make the weapon the 31+ round magazine goes into a "machine gun."

Stick the 33 round glock mag in a glock 17 = "machine gun"

Stick a Beta mag into an AR15 = "machine gun"
