Or i should say "standard capacity" mags for the gun in question.
Anyway...

In Maryland, a person cannot BUY a mag with capacity over 20-rds. Ok.

But you can OWN them, and USE them- if you have them. OK.

Now, what about buying a useless magazine: say a 47-round flat pie magazine for a Czech DP LMG in 7.62x54R from World War I?
That gun is nowhere to be found, not even in rebuilt semiauto mode. So the magazine, which is WAAAYYY pre-ban at over 50 years old, cannot be inserted into anything that will make it function.

So can a MD resident buy one? over the internet, say?

thx,

Not if the laws say it can't hold anything more than 20.

Bureauninnies won't care that it doesn't fit into anything that you can find. All that matters to them is that they can make an easy bust where the chances of you (being a reasonably law abiding person) won't shoot back compared to Joe Dealer on the corner looking at serious hard time.

Sorry, I vote thumbs down.

(Unless your parents live in PA and you ship it to them ;) )
