    In case I have to sell my pistol which is more than 10 r,
    1) First concern US gun. Not too old gun because still can get parts support.
    2) Don’t want DOA gun. My favorite is SA/DA .
    3) Price is not more than around $450.00.
    4) Metal or alloy gun first , but still concern plastic one.

    I have searched but found only a few such as S & W 39 ( too old, developed in 1954).

    Thanks!

    S&W 3906., All stainless, 9 round mags +1 in the tube, bet your life reliable and tack driving accurate.

    Only made for a few years. Superb single stack 9mm. :)

    If you want to buy a 10 round limited handgun, just look at the list of guns you can buy in MA. We are limited to 10 round magazines. I tried to find the list, but keep getting 404 error on all links I try.

    It won't make the top of your list, but if your top picks don't work out consider a Glock 26. Price, parts, and US made. Not sure if the 26 specifically is US-made yet, but Glock is now shipping some models that are made here.

    A 3rd gen S&W is always a good option. Easily under your $450 price tag even now. A used CZ Rami is a very nice carry option also, tough to find though. For polymer frame Glock 26 is a good choice also.

    Thanks! I will put it on my list, but I like black instead of silver , but it still can be concerned.

    Im guessing every manufacturer makes a 10rd version for the states that have mag cap laws.. Now it would be up to you to decide if you wanted to live with the thickness of a gun designed as a double stack and not be able to use it.

    One of my personal favorites in your requirements besides the 3rd gen Smiths would be the Beretta 92 Type M (8 +1).

    Just buy 10-round magazines for the guns you already own.

    S&W 5906, they made 10-round mags for it during the ban.

    A Ruger SR9C or just an SR9 with a 10 round magazine. I tell you this because I've got one. But the cheapest way would be just buying 10 round magazines for the pistol you already got. Hope this helps.

    What will be the purpose of the gun? In my post above I realized that I automatically assumed carry and therefore recommended a subcompact. If it were a night stand gun, plinker, or target pistol, that would change the answer.

    teachu2, alfon99,

    I am very interested your answer. But we need to make sure what is the new law exactly want to ban? Just ban magazine or ban the gun with this kind of magazine?
    I got one S & W 915 15 rounds, I don’t know where I can buy a 10 r magazine for it. The question is if we can use retrofit magazine in order to keep this gun? If answer is yes, gun company should spend a lot of time to retrofit many different kind of gun's magazines.

    S & W 5906 also have 15 r magazine. maybe it still be banned .

    I pickup a section from New York new gun laws,
    "Magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds and manufactured before 1994, which are currently legal, would have to be turned over to authorities or sold out of state within one year. If a magazine has a capacity between eight and 10, it would have to be retrofitted to only hold seven rounds."
    Does that mean the laws bans the magazine only or ban the gun with this kind of magazine?

    I think it bans the magazine. It doesn't even mention the words "gun" or "firearm" and It would be stupid to ban the guns. And in fact theres no gun with "that" kind of magazine. You can always find bigger, or smaller capacity magazines for the same gun. About the law, what happens with the magazines manufactured After 1994?

    You'll need to dispose of the mags over 7 rounds, and buy new ones that hold 7 or less. Someone will make them to fit your guns - it may take a little time.

    If you have family out of state, ship the old ones to them. If the law gets overturned or you move, get them back!

    No FFL needed - magazines are not guns!

    Smith and Wesson makes 10 round magazines for the M&P line of pistols.

    These are not blocked larger capacity magazines but a different design. About the bottom third of the magazine is a plastic block that is the floor plate, albeit a couple inches long.
