I posted a 50 round 10/22 magazine for sale and got a response from someone who had a few questions about reliability and then said they'd buy it. I just got the M.O. today with the address of the buyer and he lives in California. As far as I know anything over a 10 is outlawed in CA. He seemed quite sincere and even had a couple of questions. He also never mentioned living in California before I received the M.O. Could this be the BATF, or am I just being paranoid?

IANAL, but I doubt it's the ATF.

The mag restriction is a callifornia law, not federal.

And I'm not sure there's any penalty for you sending a magazine to CA - just on them receiving it.

You're probably too paranoid. Or not paranoid enough. Hard to tell.

Return the money order and inform the sender of his state laws...

No crime, no reason to be paranoid.

I could be mistaken, but I think the over ten round ban on mags only refers to centerfire.

What's IANAL?

I would send the MO back, but to be honest, who wants a 50 round ramline magazine. They're not very reliable. He's buying it for the first price I posted it for.

In a way isn't me selling a 50 rounder to a shooter in CA quite similar to the deffiance of the British by the colonists. Maybe I'm just a patriot...

did he ask for it as replacement parts for another magazine? if so, disassemble it and send it off. You're not going to get in trouble. If he just wants a new magazine, tell him to go away as it's illegal for HIM to import it.

The BATFE has nothing to do with enforcing state laws, however.

California cannot nail you for violating california law if you're in another state. It's not federal, so dont worry about it. It's venue, and they aint got it.

IANAL = I am not a lawyer.

I'm not one either and if it were me I would send it to him.

He would be the one breaking his state's law, you arent breaking any of your own states laws.

Fuck California.

OFFascist, you pretty much summed up my thoughts after reading some of these replies. Screw CA!

You can never be to paranoid

I would mail it and not give it a second thought. Just don't mail it to me.

The Kalifornicators in State .Gooberment are threatening to prosecute out-of-state gun dealers if the sell a high-cap mag to a Kalifornication victim citizen.

Send the mag...
I wouldnt put a return address on the package, just to be on the safe side.
