This may belong in legal, but this post could cover most of us here so I posted it in General discussion. Say a gunowner had a post Sept. 94 firearm. He finds a legal to own preban Hi-cap. Does putting them together violate the Fineswine AW law? An FFL holder that I know, says yes. I thought that this language was in the oringinal bill, but the NRA got it tossed out. Hell you can even buy post 94 firearms with hi-caps, or could at one time.

The pistol that immediately comes to mind is the Para Ordnance line. I am seriously considering a P16-40, which holds 16 rounds of 40 caliber. Great for match shooting. These NIB pistols come with a coupon, which allows you to purchase 2 highcaps directly from the manufacturer. Anyone familiar with this program? Sounds like a plan to me, but I want to stay legal. edited because I just woke up and can't proofread with one eye open.

Any preban mag is legal to own and use in a postban firearm.

As far as I know it just can't be sold with a hi-cap mag but if you buy one after the fact it really shouldn't matter.

The law ONLY states that no more 10+ capacity clips can be MANUFACTURED after the ban (or imported if they were manufactured after the ban). It says NOTHING about putting preban mags in postban guns.

I just bought a NIB Beretta 92FS Inox that came with a factory 10-round and a factory [b]15-round[/b] mag. Apparently if the mag was manufactured before 9-94 it is still legal to sell with a new gun.

As long the the magazine was made before 9/94 and your putting it in a US made weapon , it's ok. That's why the AK's you see that will take hi-cap mags advertise that thet have enough US made parts to be legal. Until manufactures figured that out, companies like Romarm(Romania) came out with single stack AK's for a short while.

anothergene here it is plain and simple for you.you can use any(unless you have a state ,county or city law)20,30 and up mag as long as it was made before 9/13/94 in your post ban ar15.now as for your ak's:again(unless you have a state ,county or city law)is the same as stated above but in the case of a rifle that only accepted 10 rnd mags ,you can with the Required # of us parts make it take 30 rnder's.mmk
