NY pre ban mag law?

Recommended Posts

My cousin lives in Long Island NY, and I'd like to get some pre ban mags to take there since as far as I know, pre ban high caps are allowed.

 

Does anyone know what are the specifics of the law?

 

Where can I get some pre ban 5.45 mags (and how do I know they're pre ban) sent to me as a rebuild kit (only way I can posses over 15rd mags in NJ)?

The specifics are : don't buy a post ban mag.

 

Identifying a pre-ban AK 5.45 or 7.62x39 mag is easy. Is it Communist surplus? Excellent, it's pre-ban.

If they're over 15 rounds, just have them sent straight to your cousin's house in LI (assuming they're pre-ban, of course).

 

As an NJ resident, you can't possess a mag (even a "rebuild kit") that holds more than 15 rounds (and the whole "pre-ban" thing means nothing NJ). Some vendors like 44Mag have a disclaimer saying any mag, regardless of capacity, can be sent to any state as a "rebuild kit". This isn't true in most cases. In fact, the only ban state that I know of that "rebuild kits" (a mag broken down into pieces; body, follower, floorplate, spring) are legal, is Cali.

 

44Mag would gladly send a 30 round PMag to a New York address as a "rebuild kit". For some odd reason, they think that we can own them that way, but we can't. Get caught in NY with a 30 round PMag body, and you're fucked. Regardless of if it's a complete mag or not. Same goes for you guys in NJ. Be smart, and stay safe. Don't get screwed over a mag.

 

 

 

 

Yes, any magazine that was manufactured before September 14, 1994 is considered "pre-ban" and is legal in NY in any capacity. Otherwise, we're restricted to 10 rounds or less.

 

Like BigBoss said, stick with steel Combloc mags and you're golden.

I guess 10rd it is. Don't want to get in some shit over magazines. I saw more than one site say rebuild kits to NJ so I assumed that's true. Guess you can't trust internet stores to know all laws.

Just have them shipped directly to your cousin. That's what I would do, anyway.

Save up, send your cousin a money order and have him order a bunch of pre-bans with a pre-paid credit card. They'll sit happily and legally in his house and you can use them whenever you go over there / if SHTF.

Shooter is correct, there is a big misconception for some reason that you can have magazine parts or "rebuild kits" in NJ when it is most certainly illegal to do so.

So how would one go about rebuilding a damaged magazine? Are any new parts allowed into the state or do you just have to buy another pre-ban magazine when one breaks down?

If the body is damaged to the point of being unusable, then it's garbage. Cut your losses and replace it with another pre-ban.

 

If we're just talking about damaged guts; follower, floorplate, spring.........those parts can be replaced at any time, with brand new counterparts (Magpul followers are great).

 

So to answer your question.......yes, you just have to buy another pre-ban mag if one goes tits up and you feel the need to replace it. Just buy more than you need (easier said than done, I know)....that way, when one takes a shit, it's not the end of the world. Most pre-ban mags, if you look in the right places, aren't really priced that high to where they need to be treated like gold. AR15.com's Equipment Exchange is a good place to look for pre-ban mags for pretty much any gun.
