in MA, it is a FELONY to possess a newly manufactured Hi-cap magazine (anything greater than 10 rounds capactiy). It is becoming increasingly difficult to find pre-ban magazines, or tell the difference between used pre-bans and recently manufactured ones.
So the question is this... If I have a legitimate pre-ban magazine that gets damaged beyond repair (i.e. dropped and badly dented) is it legal for me to buy a repair part, such as a new magazine body (with no internal parts) so I can fix the bad mag?

Don't ask a question you don't know the answer to
Replacing springs and follower are legal, however I would guess that replacement magazine bodies are not. You might want to address the question to the MA AG's office for a legal answer, since they are the ones who will make the final determination on it. JMO, remember IANAL.
