Q: Re: new High Capacity magazine laws in CA 11 CCR 5491 reads: (b) Prior to July 1, 2017, an individual may dispose of a large-capacity magazine by permanently altering the magazine?s feeding device so that it reduces the capacity to 10 rounds or less. (1) A large-capacity magazine that is a box type can have its capacity permanently reduced by using both of the following methods: (A) Inserting a rigid magazine capacity reduction device, also known as a magazine block, into the magazine body and then affixing the floor plate of the magazine to the body of the magazine with permanent epoxy. Metal magazines with metal floor plates have the option of being either welded closed or permanently epoxied closed once the magazine block(s) have been inserted. Due to magazine manufacturing variations (such as drum magazines or tubular magazines) it may be necessary to insert multiple magazine blocks in order to reduce the capacity to 10 rounds; and (B) Once the capacity of the magazine has been reduced by inserting a rigid magazine block into the magazine, it shall be riveted in place through either the floor plate or side wall of the magazine body. The way I read the regulation it says the floor plate needs to be BOTH epoxied AND riveted, NOT one or the other. Am I reading it wrong?
