    Where would Mossberg MVP & the Ruger Ranch Gen 2 stand?

    Where would Mossberg MVP & the Ruger Ranch Gen 2 stand with the proposed new laws?

    Both will take larger AR (or mini 30 for 7.62x39) mags but do you guys think they will be ok with the standard 10 round AR mags (max for bolt actions)? Or will the 10 round mags be illegal as they will fit a semi too?

    I ordered a gen 2 ranch last week hoping to keep my 10 shot AR mags....

    Cheers
    Tom

    If not then we can kiss good by to Ruger Precision Rifles and other similar firearms which take AR10 mags.

    We need to start calling them "generic magazines" or "multi-fit magazines" or something, to distance them from falling under the definition as "part of a prohibited firearm".

    I own a Mossberg MVP and was wondering the same thing. See in bold below, it looks like we are all good buying up all the 10rd magazines before people hand them in.



    2BMeaning of prohibited magazine
    In this Act, unless the context otherwise requires, prohibited magazine,—
    (a)
    in relation to a shotgun, means a magazine, whether or not detachable, that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges commensurate with that shotgun’s chamber size:
    (b)
    in relation to any other firearm (except a pistol),—
    (i)
    means any detachable magazine—
    (A)
    that is capable of holding 0.22 calibre or less rimfire cartridges and that is capable of holding more than 10 of those cartridges:
    (B)
    that is capable of holding more than 10 cartridges and being used with a semi-automatic or fully automatic firearm:
    (ii)
    means any other magazine, whether or not detachable, that is capable of holding more than 10 cartridges; and
    (c)
    includes any other magazine declared by Order in Council made under section 74A to be a prohibited magazine for the purposes of this Act.

    I think there ok so long as your 10 rounds or under.
    If it's the same type of mag the rifle ships with you should be fine

    I'm trying to get a Ruger precision in 5.56 (short production runs ) but I too had thought of a MVP because of my AR mags and ammo. My understanding is : if your mags are 10 rounds or under-OK if they are over 10-NEGATIVE

    Hope too as I have a RPR as well.....

    Planning on 10 shot "multi-fit" mags being ok, might be worth stocking up though.

    A RPR in 5.56 will be hard to find, short production run and ruger has discontinued the model

    I sunk to the low of considering a Remington 7600 for goat shooting. Lucky 13 make 10 round mags for them.

    @NZ32 I was worried that might be the case. I saw that some were in NZ and had been sold, lets face it 5.56 is not really a precision rifle cartridge due to its lack of range. Ruger might have some renewed interest from NZ that wasn't there before considering the circumstances. Like everyone else I was already considering the Tikka MDT .223 combo and the like. But I'd far prefer the RPR.

    If the magazine fits in an AR or other prohibited firearm then it will be a part of a prohibited firearm and therefore banned under the proposed legislation. Doesn't matter what it's capacity is.

    Maybe call it what it is, a "magazine".

    The Ruger Precision Rifle in 5.56 takes a non standard magazine, a 10 shot single stack. The .308 and 6.5 on the other hand take a double stack, but can also take the AISC mags. I'm all in favour of the idea of the "Universal Box Magazine" idea, subject of course to the best term.

    Bollocks... My 223 varmint shooting 65gn or heavier ammo is a laser ...And precision and range are not the same thing.
