Hey guys I have a new question for you... Is it illegal to be in possesion of an unloaded 30 rnd mag along with a Post-ban rifle??? Or does the mag need to actually be in the weapon in order to violate the law??? thanks jeff

It does not matter. You can use 30rd mags in any AR-15 as long as the MAGS are preban.

You can put any preban hi-cap mag in any AR-15 unless there is a state, or local ban in your area.

Ok guys, Thanks...It does clear things up... I thought that you could not but any hi cap mag into a postban rifle... Now I understand that as long as Im using preban mags... that it is legal... Again thank you for your help... I'm sure you guys deal with this once a week with the new guys... And its good to see that you still dont mind awnsering the questions...

You guys would not believe how many people are confused by this law. I know a person who took a hammer to 3 preban Glock 17 mags because they thought they were violating the law. Damn. In a local gunshop once, they had a used Sig P226 for sale and it said "no mags". I asked to see the pistol and the guy said "well, I could sell you the mags, because you are a cop", and proceeded to show me the high cap preban mags for the Sig. I tried to explain to him that he could sell the mags with the pistol to anyone and he would NOT believe me! I'm telling you, I meet someone at least once a month who has it wrong.
