In my experience, small capacity magazines come in two flavors. 5rd and 10rd. 5's are pretty rare (outside hunting rifles and 5/7 can be hunting
regulation depending on state ..those are internal magazines though)...and I'm hanging onto one I just found in the back of my closet for a real
special sale when it's legal but nothing else is and almost impossible to find. (sly grin) It's a 5rd magazine, factory manufacture, for a Ruger
Mini-14 I sold years ago. Of all the rifles to have a 5rd for too... I'd obviously forgotten entirely I ever had one ..and that'll be worth a bit
However, nobody has 7rd magazines unless it was made special that way. Some 1911 .45 handguns..although modern ones go higher as I found borrowing a
cops magazines for mine on a course here locally. ooo.. Sig makes nice 1911 magazines... but I digress.
Some .22's I've seen for sale have small 7rd magazines as I've seen hanging for sale in the magazine area. Outside that? This law literally
requires the paid replacement of every single magazine in New York as I read it.
....and something else I just thought of ... Aside from the billions in replacement costs for citizens collectively ...
Who is offering anything for the billions in REAL property value represented by the magazines they've just outlawed retroactively? I mean, it's
hundreds for some ...but thousands of dollars in magazines for others with a diverse collection. It's no small matter, IMO.
