After building a postban AR15, I'm wondering what magazines are legal in Ohio? Can anyone elaborate on the Mag issue of what is legal and illegal, how to tell if a magazine is preban or not and if it is preban can you use it in a post ban rifle? Also, is the consequences the same if charged with using an illegal mag as it would be an illegal rifle? Thanks! Allen

Look for dates or "For LEO/Military use Only" on the mag. You can use pre-ban mags in a post ban gun. As for specific Ohio laws, I don't know.

If your AR (assault rifle) can *ACCEPT* magazines with greater than 10 rounds capacity, it's illegal in the city of Columbus. My guess is that Cleveburgh [;)] would have similar laws, too. I ran into this gem when I was researching gun laws while considering a move to Columbus. I have an AK that can take big mags (I have two) so I'll have to store it with a friend who lives down in Athens. - CD

I actually live in a suburb, Hilliard. I'm just wondering what capacity mag I need to bring to the range in Deleware without getting funny looks or something said to me. Thanks Allen

Ohio law is max of 30 in mag, and 1 in the "pipe"...more in the mag is considered an "automatic firearm"..only legal in a registered NFA firearm. There was a fella here that stated he was OHIO LE, and said most won't bother you, as it is uneforcable, so he states. I would not worry about it, just stick to the 20's and 30's.
