Hi-Cap magazine shipping?

Ok legal eagles, I have a situation on my hands and I need advice.

I recently concluded an internet auction where a fella has successfully bid on some normal capacity magazines which I was selling. These mags are known as high-cap magazines in non-free states. I clearly stated in the auction that I would not ship to states where these mags are illegal. I know that some of the mags were manufactured after 1994. Here's the rub, the winning bidder lives in Massachusetts and wants me to ship the mags to a family member in Maine.

This sounds fishy to me and while I sympathize with his plight I am not willing to risk legal trouble over a few bucks.

Is it legal to ship these mags to his family member?

I don't see why not. They're not restricted/regulated like a firearm would be, so it stands to reason that you can ship 'em to anyone you want, as long as they're legally allowed to own them. If they're legal in Maine, I say ship 'em out. If the family member deicdes to ship them or otherwise deliver them to the fella in Massachussetts after the fact, that's not your problem.

I live in Mass and as far as I know I can drive to Cabelas in Maine and buy a high-cap mags they have out on the floor for sale like anything else (of course they were sold out of the ones I wanted when I was there last month).

I can't see how you could be liable for what happened to them after they were shipped to Maine.

Straw purchase only applies to firearms. Go for it!

They are not illegal in Maine. For all you know, he may just keep the "post-ban" mags there. What do you care what he does with them? You're shipping them to Maine. If he brings them in to Massachusetts or New York, that's his problem, not yours.
