    Where to sell hi-cap mags?

    This weekend I was in the process of cleaning out my ammo and gear locker and happened across several Beretta 92 hi-cap mags. Man was I tickled, then I remembered that I no longer own my 92fs. Well my next thought was to pass it along to someone in need, (for a fee of course) that could use them. My first idea came from my wife who sells her old purses and shoes on ebay, sounds good, why not give it a try? So, I spend an hour taking pictures and writing the most colorful description in my ability, posted the add, waited a couple hours and checked the listing only to find that it has been pulled. What? Why? Well it seems Ebay has restricted the sales of all high capacity magazines, even though all other gun parts are allowed. My next idea is to put them on Craigslist, I listed them and within an hour they are pulled as well! Why does 5 additional rounds in a handgun put such a scare in some people? My question is, where can one sell these "evil" items without breaking the "rules"? Thanks!

    Well, we do have a classifieds section here and we're pretty pro on the sale of gun parts etc.

    Or there's gunbroker.com, armslist, or gunsamerica.com

    If you want to sell them here you need to up your post count a little bit.

    You might want to list in the ad that you will not ship to states that do not allow normal capacity mags such as CA, NY, NJ or MA.

    Hey Sarge isn't Connecticut one of the can't sell to states like CA-NY-NJ and Taxachusetts?

    OP I think you need 25 posts before you can post a for sale ad here. Just 24 more to go. On a good day I knock out 20-25 posts here no sweat.

    I have a high cap mag for a Ruger 9mm I haven't had for years. I would trade it for 22 ammo perhaps.

    I do believe they were banned with their last round of anti-American laws along with modern semi-auto rifles.

    I guess that is why I can never find used 15 rd mags for my G20 on ebay.

    I'd suggest selling them in either New York or California.

    Couple things .. Ebay only allows mags up to 10 rounds .. Backpage or armslist or here is the way to go .. Just dont take checks etc ..


    Check if they are pre 1994 mags .. These will sell for a lot of money in MA where you have to have pre 94 mags if over 10 rounds ..

    If these are 15 round mags .. They can not be sold to NY/CT/HI and a few others .. But last I looked still legal in NY/CO

    What is "hi capacity" to you? 15 is really just standard capacity. Are they 20/30?

    If they are pre-ban that means manufactured before either 1998 or 1994 (I would have to look it up) you can sell them to Massachusetts residents at a premium and they would buy them up quickly. Mass gun laws are a Joke but there are loopholes.

    If it's a 20/30 rd AR mag that's standard, too!

    To me; "high capacity" denotes a higher capacity than the manufacturer originally designed the weapon for. So a 30 round AR magazine is 'standard'. My 13 round Bersa magazine is 'standard'. But my wifes 8 round magazine for her .380 would be 'high capacity' as the gun came with 7 rd mags.

    It is the same as the Fed AWB ban 1994 .. Made before a that date 1994 legal in MA if you have a LTC-A .. Ditto any guns classed as pre ban ... Only way to own folding stock ar/aks etc in MA if I remember correct ..Pro why you see so many colt SP1 and the other pretty old pre 1989 import ban guns in MA verus the rest of the usa as they are your only options .... Tis nice to have folding stocks and bayo lugs ..

    Non glock mags can be tricky to firured pre ban or not ... Last I looked 92 mags are pretty hard as I think only the follow is dif colored on the old ones ...

    Glock and most sigs mags are easy or of course guns made pre 94 and not after ...

    And yeah in MA legal pre ban mags esp the harder to find ones go for a lot of money ...
