    Legalities of 33 Round Glock Mags in Ohio.

    I purchased a 33 Round 9mm Glock Mag. I mainly bought it because it was a good price and it seems they're becoming scarce.

    So far in reading around it seems that the magazine would be illegal to insert into my Glock 19.

    Ohio law states any gun capable of firing more than 31 rounds (30+1) is considered an automatic weapon and therefore is classified as destructive ordinance.

    I can take off the plus two extension but that only gets me down to 31 rounds.

    Does anyone know of a way to permanently and legally make the magazine only hold 30.

    It's not a huge deal I'm not going to be carrying this magazine but I do want to be able to take it to the range.

    could always insert some kind of plastic block in the bottem of the mag well above the mag floorplate and below the spring that would compress the spring and make it have a smaller magazine capacity

    What would?

    The mag itself is not illegal.

    If the mag itself isn't illegal then why are you worried about it, why are you wanting to change it or permanently and legally make it only hold 30 rds?

    Seems your either asking for a solution to a problem that doesn't exist or you're concerned over the legality of your recent purchase.

    I am surprised you got somebody to ship it to you. From whom did you buy it?

    The Magazine isn't illegal. There's is no law stating one cannot own a high capacity magazine.

    The issue comes into play when I want to USE the mag. For the range, not planning on carrying the monster.

    I don't know of any websites that wont ship one to Ohio.

    Because once again. The Magazine is not illegal.




    They sell these mags at almost every gun store here. I've seen many people using them and I doubt they modified them to only hold 30. Majority of people I've talked to aren't even aware of the law.

    Consensus seem to be that it's one of those laws that they're not gonna peg u with unless you did something else. I don't wanna take that chance.

    So I'm looking for a way to make it legal to USE. Or I'm just gonna keep it and see if they get banned, so I can keep it and let it's value increase.

    I understood what you meant. It's like suppressors in (I believe) Washington state. Legal to own, but illegal to use. And what you want to do is alter it so it is legal for you to put it in your gun (by limiting it to only 30 rounds permanently.)

    I've never heard of any company making such a plug though. I'd wait on RamRod. If it's Glock related, he probably would be able to point you in the right direction.

    Yea I was gonna PM him and Sixto, but I figured I'd make a thread and open up discussion.

    By that definition, every pistol is capable of firing more than 31 rounds ... if you insert a large enough mag, so....

    Well I wouldnt want to muck up a good mag by putting a permanent alteration to it. What is the use of having one if you cant use it. I would think also that plug or no, it would still technically be considered a 33 round mag. But Sixto is a LEO in Ohio and could probably give you better guidance towards the law.

    I doubt Natchez would ship one to Ohio. I could not even get them to ship me regular G17 mags because I am in the same county as Cincinnati which used to ban all mags over 10 rounds. They refuse to apply the Ohio SC ruling from December. I would be disappointed in a vendor that sold me something that, while possibly legal to own, is not legal to use. This is a good way to get your customers in deep do do.

    I would be dissapointed in a vendor that chooses to ignore current law and try to enforce a law that doesn't even apply to me, just bevause I live in the same county.

    I am. I vented in another thread here and I cut my ties with Natchez. I got the mags from Midway or Cheaper than Dirt.
