Thread: High capacity pistol mags

    High capacity pistol mags

    A gentleman is wanting to take a safety course from me because twice he has let his FID and then his upgraded Call B pistol permits expire.

    His question is, he has an older target pistol with an 18 round mag.. If he's denied his class A, can he still own the 18 round mag, and if he does get his class A, can he carry that mag?

    The way I intemperate the law is that it's not against the law to OWN a mag over 10 rounds in MA, just against the law to SELL them. I understand the pre ban rules for rifles and such, but carrying concealed? Still a gray area to me. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Its all based on when the mag was manufactuered. If they were made before the ban, than your ok to sell posess and carry. No high cap mags in Mass after the ban. I think the ban was 1994

    That is correct.....as long as it is a pre-ban mag, he should be just fine providing he has a Class B

    class A is high capacity, class B is not. He can not have a high capacity mag with a class B, must have a class A

    not to my understanding (although I could be wrong), if it is pre-ban then you can have it with anything Class B or higher...I have pre-bans for all my ARs...no issues that i am aware of

    Let me correct myself, what I said earlier was based on a handgun

    Class A: large capacity hand guns and large capacity long guns
    Class B: non-large capacity hand guns and large capacity long guns.

    Thanks all. He was a former prison guard. Passed with ease. Happy to keep his mag.

  10. In New York Pre Ban Hi-cap magazines are allowed,not sure if you can use the Pre Ban mags in post ban guns.

    I believe you can use the mags in any firearm as long as it is pre-ban. I have pre-bans and bought them with my rifle. I'm not a lawyer, but I believe this to be the case.
