    Does anyone know if there is some kind of blocking insert to reversibly convert a 30rd standard AR15 or AK47 magazine to a 10rd capacity for legal reasons? I may be moving to California soon and don't want to have to get rid of all my cool stuff.

    If it's reversible it probably won't qualify as a legal 10-rnd magazine. Just my thought, anyway.

    Several vendors on calguns sell what you are looking for.

    However, after you put the insert in, you have to epoxy/rivet the magazine to make it permanent.

    The modification needs to be permanent, in order to comply with CA law and be legal. [PC 12020(c)(25)(A)]


    Penal Code 12020
    (a) Any person in this state who does any of the following is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year or in the state prison:
    (2) Commencing January 1, 2000, manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives, or lends, any large-capacity magazine.
    (c)(25) As used in this section, "large-capacity magazine" means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, but shall not be construed to include any of the following:
    (A) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
    (B) A .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device.
    (C) A tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action firearm.

    It's a moot issue, you can't bring the gun. Cool stuff isn't legal in CA.
